    It's a fair bit of work and only worth it on an already tuned motor. You would also have to design and build an intake plenum and figure out how to map it. Trying to get the car to run anywhere near as well as stock would be a right mare.

    Get a set of piper high lift cams at 264 degrees, will set you back about £225

    For ITB's your looking at a standalone ECU really.

    Cams give good gains, a remap would also help get the most out of the cams but the car would run without. Would be worth checking the cams are suitable for the M44 as Kent and Piper only used to do them for the M42. Be aware that the car will not idle as well (mind you M44's were never that steady to begin with!). Will also be a bit peakier.
