i got icm's # i will call next week and see if i can get an estimate. does anyone have any experiance with what works with these motors to get more power out of them? is it possible to bump the stock hp #s by 50 or so, without going to the added expence of a turbo? what has anyone done, or has seen done, that works?

I'm running the Borla catback, TT Euro Spec cams, and TT chip on my 9A. Like I've said before we should go for a spin to compare sometime. (this is trevor by the way)

there isnt much power to be found in 16v's without boost, people spend thousands and thousands trying to break even 200 HP naturally aspirated and many dont achieve. cams a chip, good intake and exhause will be enough tho!

i checked out the link to vortics the twin carb set up sure looked clean,and i bet it would sound cool. any opinions on carb set ups on the 16v? i'm guessing you would also need a new ignition set up. just the look alone makes me want to go that route
