good quality induction kit, then an exhaust (possibly need one custom making) then an electronic boost controller and set to 1.1bar. should see lively performance. as your car has an air to air intercooler thats mounted on top of the engine i would recommend either an ERL water injection system or if funds allow a front mount intercooler

is this the NA block (VVTi) or the blown block (turbo'ed).

for basic tuning it's all about getting cold air in easy and hot air out fast.
So cold air ducting and de-catted exhausts.

Then for NA, you have to look at cams, timing or TB's
For turbo, wind the boost up and then look at FMIC's and WI etc ..

and a good aftermarket ECU will help a lot.

Hi Bibbs,
The Caldina GT4 has the 3s-gte engine, and it hasa turbo with 260 hp and about 320 Nm in torque.

is this the NA block (VVTi) or the blown block (turbo'ed).

for basic tuning it's all about getting cold air in easy and hot air out fast.
So cold air ducting and de-catted exhausts.
