(206) 240 3059.
I wanted power so I went with a 1990 TT upgraded by the previous/second owner, by people I knew that know the Z32 inside and out. $15,000 and I got 408 RWHP and only 75,000 miles. My '03 with 144,000 on the clock still handles better but gotta love reliable boost.

TLDR

you're gonna spend $1000 and gain 5 horsepower lolz


you're not gonna get jack from your parts unless you do a tune, preferably through uprev, and that's gonna be at least $500 for the license and dyno tuning time.

I've actually heard of people losing power with bolt on with the DE. Engine's programmed to run a certain wideband. Those parts will lean it out, and the ecu will kick it back to compensate.

The only positive thing heard about any bolt on for the DE is a plenum spacer for obvious reasons. Intakes for these cars are just a complete waste of time and money because people always lose power or barely gain anything. Exhaust is also a waste of time even with test pipes and a tune because they rob a lot of low end torque. Which is why stock Z's have been beating on a few "loud and proud" Z's. Nitrous and a spacer is probably the best bang for buck mods on these cars IMO. Also mods you can do for free to increase both handling and speed is getting the Z's fat *** to lose some weight. Taking out the passenger seat, radio, spare tire, nav, anything thing you can live without and shave a few pounds. And if your overweight yourself, sign up for a gym membership.
