Turbo? Exhaust (won't really be performance more sound), not too many options for a 2.3

intake mods are always good...

but with the 2.3 all I can suggest is clean parts..? I mean intake and sensors and injectors to squeeze every last drop of power out...idk anything else except serious upgrades (v8) lol

Turbo is the only option for that motor. Or put in a V8.
