Bone stock 2000 E430 4matic, mod suggestions and speed limiter removal help?

Hey guys, i'm new here, i've had my e430 for about a month. Cleaned out my garage and bought this bad boy, i got it for a steal! Warranty and all I just got it back from the garage with new morrello fenders, brand new paint, buffed headlights, refinished rims, and she's spotless and clean as can be. Starting on the performance mods now, and i want this pesky limiter gone! I've already topped her out, I live in a somewhat rural area, but alot of racing goes on here, and i want to atleast be able to run with them. I was looking at turbo kits, but couldn't really find one i would be okay with. My major concern at this point is to remove or bypass the electronic speed limiter, and get the most bang for my buck on a few performance mods. This can't really keep up with my 1992 dodge stealth RT/TT, I had that bad boy bury the speedo at 160. When i bought the e430 i saw the 160mph speedo, and didn't think anything about a speed limiter, guess i should have done a bit of research first. Oh well, i love the car, and that's the only flaw i've found with it.

BY THE WAY, I picked this beauty up for 3 grand flat, oh yes!

Congratulations and welcome to the forum! Unfortunately I don't know the first thing about modifying your car, but that was a nice deal :P

Go for kleemann-usa! Speed delimiter and performance ECU tune, some headers would be great too and the most benefit tuning in this car, go for some k&n's or BMC filters, put an x pipe in the 2nd cats place, and remove center resonator with 45degrees mandel bend tubes
