Perfomance Help

I'm looking for some ways to make my car faster and more powerful. I was thinking of a CAI but i heard it doesnt increase much power. What other things can i do to increase HP and strength?

Re: Perfomance Help

It will all depend on how much you want to spend.

A CAI is a good start along with a true dual exhaust.
The $50 ebay CAI is a good deal.

Re: Perfomance Help

I mean are headers worth getting? Right now, the only not stock thing on my car is cat back exhaust which does not give me any gain in HP, i know that. Are there any other mods i can do that are not that expensive because my salary is pretty low because im in school.

Re: Perfomance Help

Eventually you will want to eliminate the Y-pipe & go true duals.
