No, no, no, no... You can get an intake (ram air/cai), exaust, plugs/wires new ignition coils, Nitrous has been done on this forum, there is a long list of things. Somethings like removing your MAF screen are free. Checkout this techinfo article http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=52 . It is very helpful and gives you a nice starting point. Do you have 170k miles on your engine?

And don't ever let the comparitively low sounding 170 hp fool you. The L27, and it'* relatives are known for very ballsy torque.

Hey 170 HP isn't low though... More then most cars! Anyways torque is why we kill off the line, and through the entire power band, it'* not like an s2000 were you sit in the intersection till your engine gets to 6k RPMS and your 2nd cam kicks in... We have a nice and flat torque curve!
