After that if you still want to keep going search around you'll find tons of stuff.
It always starts small... Then you add more.. Sometimes its just better to go big off the get go rather than tip toe around minor mods.
A chip and cone filter is the cheaper/easiest solution. I wouldnt do much more than that. I found that was a great boost for the m42. Imo, Anything else isnt worth it. Unless you are adding a turbo, sc, or a 6cyl swap.
