This has been mentioned to death in the modification areas of the forum. Only 1 intake has shown no loss in power with possible signs of some gains. That is AEMs system.

other simple NA mods are CAT-Back exhaust, ignition upgrades, and maybe a tune. Don't be expecting any massive gains though, these engines don't see massive changes while still NA.

If you need help with your build shoot me a PM, I am a vendor here on the west coast and can help you out.

(If I missed the answer to my question while reading, I apologize ahead of time.)
I'm researching engines to power the 818C that I will be purchasing soon. One that just keeps holding my attention is the Renesis (I know, it'll need an adapter plate for either the Subaru tranny or a fwd Mazda tranny). I prefer to keep things n/a (I count meth as still n/a, and I plan on including it in whatever build I decide to do). With meth, compression, port & polish, cai, tune, etc., can the Renesis reliably produce 300 whp? I love the rotary engine, but I'll stick with the subaru boxer if it can reach n/a 300 whp for less $$$ and reliably stay that way. I will check around the site for more information and maybe post this question elsewhere as well.
