If you use the search function I think you will find most of the info required to do cheap mods to your car.
Good luck.

Welcome to the site on my behalf too! Do you have a 2.3 or 2.0 liter engine? Anyway, I suppose you have the DI/APC computer (Direct ignition and turbo boost control ECU) and Bosch LH-2.4.2 injection. There's no easy "do it yourself" pot adjustment for the APC like in the earlier models. You need to reprogram the software and perhaps get a fuel chip as well. There are tuning companies that do programs for DI/APC too.

But as a first "mod" I would check that your standard system is in A+ condition! Really can make a noticeable difference if you do a thorough tune-up (filters, oil, plugs, base-boost adjustment etc.).
