Perhaps turbo is the way to go if it's possible. Given that this is the low compression US version, I remember reading those would be the best versions to use a turbo on. What's the rating on that version? About 240hp isn't it?

Hmm about the same as my 420. (231) Although that one has a high compression engine and it really sings actually. Very happy to rev and lots of get up.

that was my original intention.
did you do or seen that working yourself?

all the other options mentioned arent really worth the effort, i mean c'mon for under 100hp gain i do not want to spend 20 grand or swap the engine.
