ngk plugs, acell coil, cut out bottom of air box and run a k-n filter , gap your plugs at at .45 , 2 inch pipe from the cat back ,turbo muffler , no center cat , if you have a turbo motor , i call it the big football cat cut it out and run 2 in pipe back , there might be a few more like bumping up your timming ,

I don't know off the top of my head, but most good parts stores should be able to tell you the OEM plugs for any given make and model.
