Is exhaust the only real option?

Unfortunately, the PES G2 is definitely not in my price range.

everybody will disagree with me, but nitrous is the cheapest and fastest way to make power. Unfortunately, you have to refill it.

Thats like a virgin who doesnt like the idea of sex because they havent had any experience with it :) You just gotta play it safe.
+1 for the chip at that price. It's not big gains, but it does pleasantly tweak your timing and fuel to gain a little bit of power. Certainly noticeable gains, but nothing crazy.

Big Bore trottle body, CAI (with heat shield) P&P heads and manifold, upgraded ecu, lightened flywheel, custom exhaust, little larger dp's, hi-flow cats.

All these upgrades have been done with very good results.

N2O plus 4. I run it in my S4 and it also makes me want to throw it on my 2.8. $70 to fill the bottle is a little rough though.

you want to start by getting rid of 1 liter and adding a turbo

I thought about that since I just got my car paid off but it doesn't make good financial sense right now.

as opposed to $65 to fill your fuel tank? $4-5/lb of N20 ain't bad.

... God I love that car. Anybody hear any updates on the 24V version?

Just get a nice intake set-up, the speedtuning chip, and a custom cat back exhaust. All that stuff will cost you like $500 bucks and it will bring the 2.8 to life.

n2o xwhatever, easy cheap. run a wet set up and start with small jets.
