    1) NOS (600+)
    2) throttle bodies (1500-2000 for full set up and RR)

    Other than that, go and get a turbo. Converting a c20xe to a c20let is too time consuming and expensive. I've seen some c20let's go for 1000 (engine), so you could do an engine swap. Or ditch your old car and buy a cav/calibra turbo instead, there are few going for 1500 anyway.
