there really isnt much you can do to a DI motor to sup it up without the above.....a more open air intake will help a tiny bit, but without a chip, exhaust, and maybe some deeper mods, there just isnt much more you can do........alls i can really say is replace your fuel filter so you know your maximizing the fuel flow.........and run it hard.....

u couuld shim the fuel pressure regulator...or install a resistor in the ICP wire to bump HP oil pressure up....but that wont help at wide open throttle...only partial throttle situations...

i agree with marc. with out a chip or tuner and an exhaust and intake your not going to see a big increase in horse's. home made mod's arent going to get you sled tugging power either i don't think. so i would approach saturday as a chance to set a base line and see where your at. then figure out where you want to be and go from there. good luck and kick some a**!!!
