Try Techinfo for starters. 180 thermostat, and a tranny cooler are usually the first two we suggest. Insurance first, then speed.

You're Series II, so there'* alot available for you. You ask, we'll get you there!

Want more ooommppphhh? Either get an intake or chop up your airbox, depending on what your budget is.

I gutted the airbox on mine, and it did make a noticeable (or potentially psychosomatic I suppose) difference.

Honestly, went from chirping the tires to making smoke when I ropped it from a standing start, and great passing power. Haven't been able to test 0 - 60 yet (Minneapolis PD seems to be everywhere lately)
