the first thing i need to know, is how much you want to spend? basically, the first thing to buy regurdless of what you want to spend is an exhaust and some extractors. depending on the system you get generally you can pick what you want it for, top end, low down etc etc...

if you want to fork out some more cash, get a stroker, a 355, 383 or maybe even something bigger. usually a stroker kit will give the most low down torque possible with the right cam. if you dont feel like spending that much, just go for a cam. :)

The 215i is already stroked and has awsome low end torque. Better then the gen3. :wink:

To ADD to the already low down torque, you can add Pacemaker headers, and a twin 2 1/2: cat back for a start then go from there.

I take it you want to spend $1500 not 15k, the biggest restrictions on these motors are the manifold anything from 4500rpm they start being retrictive. Maybe look at a COME, STARR manifold, 90mm throttle body.

Another memeber on here can tell u more details of his current project but his putting in a Crane 284 cam in his VS GTS.

say it with me cuz.....TRACK DRIVE DAYS, take it out and drive it like you stole it. Generation motorsports resident beauty, Molly Sproket, books us both into drive days often for therepy purposes. The therepy is helping, ive cut my street racing down to twice a week, but it hasnt been easy.
