What do you do with your car? What do you want to do with your car? Do you track it? Do you want to track it? Just drive it around?

really to just drive it around is the main thing. I was thinking about tuning it little more aggressive. I also have thought about a stroker kit.

If you haven't done it yet, tuning for e85 could be a good first step

Yes if he lives near a pump and wants to install some bigger injectors, my 870cc injectors are nearly maxed at 300whp. But he's right, E85 or water/meth will get you some serious power on that set up. And what meda said, it's all about what you want to do with your car, personally i think you should definitely go for more power!

Medamullet can tune for E85. If you don't live close to a pump that carries it, I would just upgrade the turbo to something like DOM4. You seem to have everything else for just driving around town.

Turbo upgrade or do some more susupension upgrades, lateral links, trailing arms, under body braces. whatever else to stiff up the ride of it, but then again if you aren't planning on tracking it you don't really need to be stiffer.

you could always switch to an external wastegate setup, I love the way those setups sound!! If you ever go to Cars N Coffee listen when Medamullet leaves or see if he'll give you a ride or something, it sounds awesome. but that would be a good direction to take it for just driving it around.

Coilovers and wider wheels and tires. That's enough power, now make it hook in the corners.

Strip it, cage it and race it! Once you do that, driving around and parking hard will seem very bland indeed.
