    I am looking in to what can be doe to increase the 0-60 time on my car.

    What are the first 5 steps i should be taking in achieving this? and what costs am i looking at?

    i also bought a performance air filter... but bcos of the size i had to remove the plastic box around the old one, but my prob is when in a low gear or setting off it ratles around under the engine, what can i do about this?

    thanks in advance, also how much would a turbo or supercharger cost? i dont mind spending the money if it will be worth it ( just curious)

    hey ther...unfortunately improving the 0-60 sprint time in a naturally aspirated engine is very difficult(well for worthwhile difference)the usual route is a top notch forced air induction kit with heatshield or fitted as far away from heat as possible£250 onwards....then the exhaust needs too be dealt with...getn rid off th cat converter can give some extra bhp and torque...£400 onwards...good re-map£350 onwards...also keep usin high octane fuel..tesco99 or shell vpower...a supercharger will set you back about £4000 including fitting from mstyle and will give you an extra 60bhp...and you dont need too upgrade anythn else...cams etc...tho better brakes may be a good idea!google car tuners or re-maps and you wil get a good idea from other companies
