15-20 more than stock at the rear wheels~ there about. Mods dont really always add a certain amount of hp/tq as some mods work with others to gain more than a single mod can alone for example.

A CAI usually gives 5-7hp~
Dual exhaust usually gives 5-7hp~
Headers usually gives 2-3hp~
Throttle body useless near stock, no need for more air
Throttle body spacer useless dont waste your money
New posi rear end with 3.73 gears adds no hp/tq but makes it feel like you did, great mod!
Tuner, two things here to remember. The more mods you have the better a tune will help. Most get 10-15hp/tq but its all subjective. A tuner is not just about adding power but about making the care better all around an such like altering shift points if an auto. Secondly if the tune is from a GOOD place (do NOT buy an off the shelf "can" tune) then it will do MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH more than a POS generic tune.

Re: how much hp will this make

I would have to say no, the closest thing is probably nitrous, but really you can't just hook that up and go either. You might get a few runs out before you start doing some damage to your internals...and then you got issues.

Anytime you start looking to add serious hp like 50-100+ hp, you're going to need a power adder or build the engine, either way requires supporting mods to ensure your car will last, and even then it isn't guaranteed, anything can happen. It is also going to cost a good deal of money, no way around it.

Basically any claim about a part that a company makes is b.s.
If BBK says their CAI produces 15-20 rwhp instantly, I'd automatically figure the actual increase to be more like 4-7hp, and even this is like what Spec said, it is subjective.

Re: how much hp will this make

there is no way to get to 300hp without major modifications either by rebuilding the motor or going with a supercharger/turbocharger.

Just building the motor (say investing around 5,000 into the motor) you would be around 300 at the engine (250 at the rear wheels~)

ah, who needs an x or an h pipe anyway. just run straight pipe from your headers to the mufflers then on to the tips.

Re: how much hp will this make

Every time someone mentions exhaust he has to ask that same question.
Its like when you discus HP ratings of a 99+ V6 and they swear all your getting is what ford rated the single port sixxers.
