K for NA, or spend the money to build and boost.... all "bolt on" mods provide no truly noticeable gains other than noise lol.

I know all about this, I am crazy enough to be trying to squeeze any extra power out of the L15 by "standard methods" since that's all I am allowed in my SCCA class for auto cross For the money, and if you aren't worried about local emission laws a turbo is the best bang for buck method.

You have to make around 10+ wheel horse power to notice a gain. With the cooler plugs, higher octane fuel and a full exhaust, you may be able to get close to that. Honestly the advice on here is good. Get the appearance looking how you want and save your cash to put towards a bigger better build if you want to really make more power.

for the price you'd pay to get a noticeable gain, you could put that money towards a miata or streetbike
