Need help on a N/a

current mods
I've got a 2000 gx sedan, I'm after a little bit more go, i've done :suspension coil overs, rear sway bar, new semi performance break pads, headers through to exhaust, with a basic aftermarket air intake/ panel filter,
It handles amazingly but I'm so slow .


question
I was thinking cams would be the next step does anyone have any idea how to next get the best bang for my buck,

thanks for reading
any help would be brilliant.

Would this be much of a power gain, i was more after the sound of cams aswell, I've heard some wrx with lumpy sounding cams and I'd dare to say they sound better then V8's

Re: Need help on a N/a

simply put, sell it an buy a turbo model. the impreza derives it power from being turbo charged, no turbos means mega bucks to get any sort of power from it, also you will always get more from a turbo.

Re: Need help on a N/a

That's a given, I was planning on selling it eventually or even giving it to my younger brother, i still have 1 year on my provisional license though (not allowed turbo's), i now also have a good cash flow so i want to blow a bit of money on my first car, i learnt to drive in an modded up xr8 so it's been to hard waiting two years.... one more is too much!
