Not sure what difference lighten pulley swould make to a standard engine. You can get a camcon VVTI controller to let you adjust when the VVTI kicks in, Apexi RSM removes the speed limiter. And when you say full system i assume you mean exhaust system? You can get a nice HKS silent hi power cat back and super racing header. Not sure where you can get a decent de-cat/ performance. And again not yoo sure what benefit you hould get from a HKS timing belt unless your internals are modified.

You could get a lightened flywheel That would improve acceleration. The list goes on and on. All depends on how much you wanna spend. or just get a supercharger!

is there big work involved in s/charger and if you lighten the pulleys it will increase the acc also as well as a f/wheel,and the hks t/belt has a better durrablety so i read some were on the net

they say supercharger is simply a bolt on kit, some people say they could do it themselves. With that fitting a supercharger means upgrading the clutch too otherwise it will start slipping after a few miles of driving. HKS belt is more durable but will not improve anything performance wise on its own. If your changing the belt is due well then it would be a good idea 100 euro for it. not sure how much pulleys are

What elexes said. The only pulley you can get is a C-ONE crank pulley. Nothing available for the power steering/alternator but there not too heavy anyway. Bypass the aircon pulley cause thats a bit of weight alright

That lot will cost same as it would for a Greddy Turbo kit... Only extra thing u require is a uprated clutch. 265-270 easy

If its N/A

APEXi POWER. Expect, no s@3! when i say this... 20hp increase, in some cases i have seen 25hp increase with mapping. It does what a camcon does, but both intake and exhaust cam, not one of them like the camcon does!

Mate this with a 4-1 header, or 4-2-1.. with free flow exhaust, and pod filter you could expect upto additional 10hp gain.
