HOT AIR's are 84/85 SFI, non intercooled cars. An '83 is a Carb/Turbo. Very different. wink

Just like the SFI cars, get a boost gauge and a knock gauge. Then make the wastegate actuator adjustable (if it isn't already) and turn up the boost as much as possible without knock. 9 psi is stock, 12-14 without knock should be reasonable without much work.

Replacing the stock air filter with a K&N cone will free up the intake side. Freeing up the exhaust will help to, but this may require fabricating a new downpipe.
