Default performance mods

A lot of forums in singapore talk about mods to increase performance.Apart from the usual ones like K&N,free flow exhaust,CAI ,remapping etc,they talk about voltage stabilizers& grounding,claiming an increase in HP.Anybody has any clue ???

maybe its voltage stabilizers for amps and capacitors and we get increase in dB.
or it has to do something with hybrid and electric cars.

There has been a lot of talk about electrical noises in an automobile wiring system which makes the ecu work harder to filter and process the signals and controls. These noise reduction product manufactureres claim to have obtained more power by cleaing up the noise, in turn making the job easier for the ecus..... However, the "noise" what these guys describe has a much broader sense, and i feel these gadgets might work only in few situations.

cheers

Default Increase in power..

Guys,
Gimme a simple solution (under Rs 10k ) to increase the power of my Getz a wee bit.I'm not a performance freak looking for 0-100 in 10 secs...but just a little more pull would help...
