2) Some sort of exhaust ( I just replaced mufflers for a better flowing one)

I have ordered a 4.0 bar fuel pressure regulator, Forge Diverter Valve kit and TIK hose. I am sending my ECU to OE tuning next week while I am out of town.
Looking forward to a little better driving experience!!!

I have 125,000 on my 08 smart. I love this car and want to keep it. Of late she seems to be very tired, has anyone rebuilt their motor? I am looking for any info or advise. I have looked but can only fined replacement engines.
I got stuck in a snowbank this morning, and got to thinking that it would have been a lot easier to get out if not for the open differential. Anyone know of any LSD that will fit in the gearbox? Even one of those crappy Phantom Grips would probably be good enough for a stock 451.
