You can handle bolt-ons yourself. Great way to get your hands dirty and bond with your car. All of your old parts can be carefully packed away to retain value.
As stated, the K27-7200 is the standard upgrade for the stock 930. You gain ~25hp or so with a lot more useable torque. Couple that with a free flowing muffler and the car is transformed. Revs quicker, pulls harder and sounds incredible!
Adding an intercooler and bumping the boost will net you another 20hp or so.
Headers are less bang for the buck at the "Stage II" level. They help with driveability and add another 15hp or so. There are options in this area ranging from $400 to $2500 depending on design and quality.
