Default Improve performance on Fisker Karma

I have had my Fisker Karma for about a year. I have never loved how quick it is. Does anyone know any type of modification that can be done to make my Fisker faster?

In Stealth mode, the car is zippy, but not QUICK. Here's what I do: 93 octane, make sure you have 27+mi of battery left, and put the car into Sport mode early for a few minutes to warm it up before you start driving spiritedly. The ICE will charge the battery back up to 27mi of charge as long as you keep it in Sport mode. I'm quite satisfied with the power of the car, and I can be a menacing itch to many V8 Jags and Maseratis on the motorway. I also installed a larger 630-Amp fuse in the car, which does give a little more push in the pants in Stealth mode.

The only modification that has been proven to improve performance is the TOM unit developed and sold by @PowerSource, preferably combined with an upgraded MSD with the 630A fuse. See this thread for a detailed discussion of these options.

Otherwise, you are limited to using Sport mode with the battery at 50% or higher charge level (26 Miles or more indicated EV range). The TOM improves performance both in Stealth and Sport mode.
