maybe rockers, exhaust, and intake? and some stock rims will quicken your pace too - how much do those suckers weigh?

No rockers that im aware of the series 1.

If you really want performance on the S1, you may talk to Dr Jay about some of the stuff he is doing head and cam wise, I know he is inducted but some of the same stuff may apply.
