What can be done to "JUICE-UP" the 30i?

This engine has got more potential than it is letting on! Any ideas on how to open up the flood-gates? Anything...from intakes to chips...I know its a new car but engine has been around for a minute, so what are your ideas? Anything tried yet?

You could try ESS tuning. Maybe they can offer a turbocharger kit. Let us know what you can find out.

i found this...sounds kinda interesting. just really upset that you can't tune this engine as easily as the one in the 35i. http://psimotors.com/POWERBOXTUNERN52.aspx

hey bro the N52 is made of magnesium alloy.. so due to that it is not Force induction friendly. so no turbo.. which sucks big time.
