You could do the airbox mod to your car too.

Run a DIY cold air duct to the filter...

Lighten the car.

Lights.

Painting stuff.

Well, basically, just remove any unnecessary parts on your stock intake system (resonator, silencer, etc..)

Then see if you can somehow make your own cold air duct and run a pipe to the intake.

Pretty simple. Someone might even make a ready made "DIY" intake for your car.

Yeah.. do a DIY intake.. shouldn't be more than a few bucks at Home Depot Racing

A simple K&N filter, and a metal tube or two running to the hole in the fender will do nicely..

Remove the hood, doors, and trunk.

removing wheels can free up to 20 hub horsepower.
