Sorry, Damn Iphone 5. Ok, fastest way to add HP to that 6 is to trade it in for something that's somewhat fast to start off with. Seriously now. To get the car "faster" by todays standards, you will likely need to do both, build up the motor then add Fi.

Good n

Good News is that your car is a little older now So parts are cheap and most of the stuff you need youcanuy used

Dual exhaust (x pipe or h), new cam with more lift, springs, longer rods, bama tune, cai, larger throttle body, tune up, port and polish the intake and exhaust manifolds, rear end gears, aluminum driveshaft... Around $3500 worth of mods and 100rwhp just like Dave said.

You can send in a cam, or you can pay us the core fee and send in your cam later for a refund of the core fee after you install yours.

You can send in the cam in your car or one from another V6 motor, or you can pay us a small fee of whatever it cost us to get a cam, and send in your cam when it gets taken out for a refund of the core fee (what it cost us to get you a cam)

Regrinds are when you take a cam core (in most cases a normal factory cam) and grind material off the base lobe to increase lift and increase the duration that the valve is open. It's just a cheap way of getting a "new" cam instead of paying for a completely new billet cam.

Does a reground cam give as much hp as a new billet cam? Also do you have a video of what it sounds like in a car?

Give them both the same specs they yield the same results lol they sound different based on specs so I can't just say "this is what a reground cam sounds like"

Yes, both cams sound the same. A better ? to ask is what certain cams sound like. For example: I was curious about the 214/224 cam and the 228/216 cam and how they sound. Each cam will sound different. The exhaust setup will change a cams sound but not its lopes sound. So when listening you must check exhaust set ups and compare them to your own. Look at all the people who make cams and decide what cam you want that works best with your application.
No offence, you probably should have a pro install a cam for you it is a lot of work. It only cost $500. This pic. shows how far apart your engine comes when you install a cam. Its not that hard if you have enough experience and a Chilton.
