Can anyone give me the top three bolt on things I can do to modify my '99 GTI 8 valve AEG engine with automatic trans? It's rated at 135hp. How can I get an extra 40 to 50 hp out of this thing? I am only looking for rally like performance mods that don't significantly rob me of gas mileage and don't break the bank.

let me rephrase that... the easy bolt ons are intake exhaust.... other then that your building your motor....

intake +1/2 hp
exhaust +5-10 hp depnding on cat / header etc.

tune + 15 maybe for a na car. i wouldnt get my hopes up though

OK, everybody. I do get it. That confirms what a mechanic told me. I suppose I will look for 10-15 hp and just enjoy the little car.

the nuespeed supercharger kit is nice. it comes with everything you need :)
the problem is that he has an auto, so it wouldnt be able to handle the extra power either way
