Like sreckfu's951 said, the loose nut behind the wheel is the best place to start.

Chips / exhaust will only really give you 10-15hp extra MAX, and drivability may go down.

If you MUST mod the car, then I suggest focusing on the suspension: thicker rear sway bar, coil-overs (250# front, 150# helpers in the rear with stock torsion bars), are a good start. It may not give you more power, but it will help get that power to the pavement. You already have LSD, which what I wish my car had! [Eek!]

If you really want mad power, you need to sell the S2 and get a 944 turbo to play with.

Just my $0.42

I don't think there is any "cheap" power in S2's. Chips, cone filters, etc. may only net 10hp. Put your money in suspension, save the rest of your pennies and call Anderson Motorworks about his turbo conversion.
