I have been doing some Auto-X and just went drag racing for the first time last Wednesday. I have to say, I now have a new addiction...MORE MODS!!! I ran a [email protected] at Sonoma Raceway but got smoked by my buddies 335ix, he was consistently pulling mid 12's with a [email protected] being his best run of the night. So, my goal is to get lower than that. But my overall goals are to exceed 400whp by the end of the year without significant turbo lag, so I can Auto-X, and more top end power for drag racing. I know the two types of racing contradict each other in terms of where the powerband is needed, but overall I am looking for a happy medium and 400whp.

I just ordered some new parts/mods to be installed and tuned once they arrive, but I am curious if there is anything I missed that may enhance the over engine performance with out going to an aftermarket turbo. I plan on doing the turbo upgrade at the end of summer. Here is a list of what I currently have and a list of what I ordered and scheduled to arrive next week. If you have any proven opinions, suggestions or ideas please chip away. Thanks!
