motor swap. nothing short of a turbo will make your Y8 fast for cheap. bolt on's dont really give alot of power. some loose power.

at that many miles no mod is really worth it. keep it relatively stock and continue to daily drive it. buy a beater for 500, get a good motor and turbo it. and then enjoy the fruits of your labor. it will be very worth it in the end.

A GSR motor is nice, its what mine is. boosted :P. B20, K20. depends on your budget and what kind of power you are looking for.
