Default Little Things to Make Car Faster?

What are little ways or things I could buy to make my car faster? I have a 1997 Acura 3.0 CL. Should I buy a K&N Air Filter? What are inexpensive (under $100) ways to make it quicker?

K&N air filters are really good as they have a lifetime warranty and you never have to replace it again. I also recommend getting a Cold Air Intake, try looking on ebay. You should be able to find a brand name intake for an Acura CL under 100 bucks.

A good wax job works wonders.

The cheapest improvement would be stripping as much weight out as you can. If you can do without a spare wheel and the back seats, you'll see a lot more power gain than from a k&n. Believe me, I installed one. It just makes a pretty noise.

under $100. Nothing.The cheapest thing that would make it faster is a Cold Air Intake. $150-300.Or to take the weight off the car like the bcak seats and empty the trunk.

Buy some headers $88.00 http://www.ssautochrome.com/level.itml/icOid/1494I've had the same headers for over 2 years, still working great, no leaks or cracks.Buy a Intake $20.00 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Bomz-...m20.l1116These together will make the biggest increase in HP for the least amount of $$.Edit Singh doesn't know what he's talking about. The ari/fuel ratio is controlled by the computer. So whatever you can do to make the engine "breath" better will give the engine more air and the computer will figure out how much more fuel to add to maintain the correct A/F ratio. That's the principle behind the K&N filter. Less restriction, more air = more HP.
