Hi All,

Just new to the 9000 ownership and forum ranks and wanting to know what I can do to improve performance of my '96 CSE. I'm in Oz so not sure if the vehicle specs are consistent with those in other countries but imagine so. Mine develops a claimed 147Kw (197hp). I'd like to ge that up by around 20%. Where do I start. Any advice on appropriate parts and/or relative reading material would be most appreciated.

3 inch downpiple gives you faster turbo spool up. 3 inch exhaust provides further improvement in reduced flow restriction.

Perforated stock airbox or cone filter replacement helps on intake side.

Manual boost controller so you can set max boost to 15 psi (just below fuel cut-off.)

Beyond this you would need an ECU upgrade.

Search the forum for more details and discussions of these mods. Hope this helps.
