    The pulley was my first thought as well. I would also suggest thinking about something like 4.10 gears. Not something that will boost HP but you will feel a difference.

    By changing to the Miziere electric water pump the crank wont be driving the water pump anymore and will reduce the drag on the rotational force, causing it to increase power.

    I have one on my A4, the only down side that I see is that when I come to a stop, like a stop light for awhile I pop it up into Neutral so it reves a little higher. If I dont the amp gage drops some, not quite to the warning level but close. I should just get a altenator pulley or tune it to get the idol higher. My lights and stero-everything works the same as it did before the pulley swap, and even did the electirc pump at the same time.
    Having an M6, you shouldnt have any problems that I can see.
