Re: more horsepower

Welcome to the site. How much r u looking to spend? Exhaust always makes it a little more fun without hurting gas mileage

Re: more horsepower

You can do a few things that will boost power AND fuel efficiency (if you you dont floor it all the time)

True Dual exhaust (2.25 inch max pipe size) (GT take offs work good here)
CAI
Under Drive Pulley
Tune

Gears help the most but cut fuel mileage down on the interstate but help in the city~ (trade off) but help GREATLY like .5 off your 0-60 times lol

Re: more horsepower

welcome

Yes modding wisely will get you more fun and better mpgs...proper exhaust, an underdrive pulley, and a tune are most popular for more power and increased gas mileage.
