Need ideas for power upgrades in my buddies 08 exige s240, he told me to get him a package together, and he wants to buy ASAP.

do they make a smaller pulley kit for the blower?
what is used to tune?
max boost on stock blower?

the car sees the road course a lot but he wants to keep it stock suspension until he feels comfortable, just needs a little more power to keep up in the straights. the car already has an exhaust and a reflash i believe. thanks in advance!

CharlieX should be the first name on your mind followed by a nicer intercooler.

search and you shall find all your answers ...

Whats your budget ?

From my knowledge the most common mods are:

1. Air intake, full exhaust and flash tune.
2. Intercooler upgrade, w/a if budget allows.
3. boost upgrade

These 3 all done together should see you with approx 50-60rwhp gain

Goodluck with it !

EFI w/tune, smaller pully, header, de-cat, exhaust. Not sure what the duty cycle on the stock injectors would be, so possibly larger injectors + fuel pump?

...general consensus seems to be that ~285 whp is the safe limit on stock engine internals, and ~220 whp the safe limit on the stock clutch, so your friend should budget toward upgrading the latter once his stock clutch eventually fails...
