i have a 1998 gt all stock i just got it and im just starting to build it up. im only 16 so i have a low budget. i cut the mufflers off and got single pipe put in for my low budget exhaust and my neighbor gave me his old k&n air filter. what is the next thing i can do to add more hp at a low budget? thanx
Well you haven't gained hardly any at all which i'm sure u can tell. The filter alone won't do much u want the entire intake. And well here is the average list. 3.73 gears upgraded exhuast and intake. Underdrive pulleys maybe. port and polish and gasket match. Short throw shifter. Decent tires if you tread is almost bare. Since you have a 98 i'd try to get some salvage pi heads of a 99-04. And the intake manifold and cams if it is in the budget. It is all about the money you have and the people you know.
save up for a catback and mac prochamber or something similar. After that I would lower it with wheels/tires
then do a PI head swap because that care NEEDS some power desperately and that will boost you to about 285 from 215 at the engine for pretty cheap.
hey thank you for your suggestions! my neighbor has an 04 cobra and he said i should save for a catback exhaust also. but he said lowering it would only be cosmetic it really wouldnt help me in any way?
