You can start off by adding a Cold Air Intake (Injen, Fujita, AEM) which will help the car breathe better than the stock intake and provide a couple more HP to your car. Then I will get an exhaust system (Greddy, HKS, A'PEXi, Tanabe, Buddy Club) which will give even more HP and torque to your car. Not a whole lot but a very noticeable difference. Your car's response will definitely improve. A header will also add to that (DC Sports, Megan, OBX) and those are some of the cheaper add-ons you can get to improve your cars performance. Also, a good set of polyurethane motormounts will stiffen the engine and add a little more torque.

haha. a 3.2tl or any TL for that matter is a fast car...... give me a break, what did you drive before a flipping 90hp civic? "supping" up that car is only asking for it. those transmissions cant even handle stock HP.... giving it more gurantees you for a tranny failure.

I've got an 01 TL - basically the same car. Its just too heavy to be a "fast" car. I know I have more HP than some of these other pice of craps on the road, but they beat me at stoplights - cause my car is too heavy. And the transmission is too risky on these cars to fool with. I've already replaced mine twice in the past 30k miles.

i hear that putting racing company stickers on your car will make it go faster. oh and getting fancy sporty seat covers of course. or a really big spoiler.
