Re: perform better

does the engine use oil, run bad, or does it run pretty good etc etc just has 130k?

If all is pretty good on it you can use seafoam to clean out carbon deposits and crap which should REALLY help. Kind of freshen it up a little bit.

Re: perform better

If the car runs ok and you just want more power you can do the typical bolt ons. Gears are also a nice modification to do.

Re: perform better

Do all the basic maintenance 1st

Rear Gear Oil, Trans Fluid, Brake fluid, Power Steering fluid, and Seafoam treatment. Check all your Belts, Hoses, bushings, and joints.

Then look into getting a mid pipe and Dyno Tune.
