You should check out what some 420A folk on here have done. They have turned them into pure beast. I've seen 420A's that could do circles around 4g63's.... Just depends on who's building it, what mod's you build it up with and how well it's tuned. I love my 4G63 and wouldn't trade it.... but i'm just saying that it is possible to make a very decent and fast 420A.

Absolutely, check out this thread at the link below here:

First Modifications

It basically describes what the first mods should be for your ride, which i agree with totally, Intake and exhaust. How efficiently your getting air in and out of your engine is major.

here's a link below to a thread with a cool collection of 420A videos you can check out. If you see something you like, don't hesitate to send a fellow N/T guy a PM to ask for guidance, do some searches or post some more specific questions with what exactly your looking to achieve next.

Good luck man with your ride, enjoy it!
