If you are truely after more power from your car, I recommend the ess supercharger, it's a big waste of money but anything else is a small waste of money and you should always go big or go home.

Kind of a gimmick, there is a few seconds after the key is removed where you can restart the car with a key. I don't remember if there is an actual reason for this or not but it's there.
