Ok so what is there to do?

Everyone says that a throttle body spacer is a waste of money even a helix, and doesn't boost your hp, if so then what's a cheap hp booster????

no such thing as cheap power....to see even 10 hp you'll spend a good chunk of change. just get a custom exhaust done and you'll at least have fun in the butt dyno

Re: Ok so what is there to do?

The best bang for the buck is really a supercharger or turbocharger. They are definetly not cheap but you will see good gains from them... Other than that go CAI, tune and new throttle body. Maybe even upper intake manifold, and definetly a dual exhaust conversion, all of that will help the car breathe a ton.

A CAI, tune, and full exhaust will get you your 10 to 20hp!...

Re: Ok so what is there to do?

VAP sells a lower intake spacer that adds a nice bit of torque. Underdrive pulleys, CAI, dual exhaust, and higher ratio gears added to an SCT tuner is satisfactory.

Re: Ok so what is there to do?

I think the best thing to do right now would be to help the car breathe, 6ers usually are choked up with their restrictive intake and exhaust, fix that and your numbers will go up.
