Okay so im looking for options for performance upgrades for my 2003 base model M.
Looking for pretty much anything that will make better power.
Current Upgrades: exhaust ( soon to be X-pipe into custom built dual straights) and replaced stock intake with a cone filter to get some better airflow.
So basically ive heard there is a computer from another year M that has no rev limiter ? Does that allow me to completely rev up in neutral or park? Also will it do anything else for the base model.
Other than that i havent found much on performance parts. Let me know any options thanks

I believe best computer choice for 02+ is an 02 special computer. And transfer gears to go with.
Unless top speed is your plan and acceleration not so much. Then stick with base gears and use another speed telling device.

True that 02 "Special" is said to have the "best" performance programming (pre recall recal) not sure if the recall reprogram changed that. Other than the exhaust and air filter an intake spacer (if you can find one) is about all there is. These cars were never designed to or treated by the aftermarket as a choice for performance up grades.
Home brew trial and error is about all there is.

Read thru the above link, to find part # of the PCM desired.
May find one in the B/S/T section. Will also need SKIM & Key from same car as a matched set.
