Well the only thing that can be done is to go for Porting and Polishing. The NHC does have Headers if i am not mistaken and there is not space for a performance filter in the small hood. Performance wires can be helpful and also removing the muffler to a free flowing one can boost some power but first its wise to go for wider rubber since power is nothing without control.

I'm yet to see a street car withour headers, so not sure what you mean. I don't think I can say the same about electric cars though.

Don't go on hearsay, look around the forum, you will find a lot of people who are very good at what they do, and look to them for advice. Changing mufflers don't always boost power, engine needs some backpressure to work well too.

V.tec, first talk to your dealer about what mods can be done without voiding your warranty. Since it's a brand new car, I'd advise you to check these things out first.

Upgrade the suspension, upgrade the tyres, change the filter, get a free flow, change the spark plugs, and nos.

hmm ok thanks for the suggestions..one more thing..
ive got 14" stock alloys on my car..which in various magz are also said to be a wee bit too small for the car..so is it cool to upgrade em to 15" or if possible 16" without affectin the suspension etc.
