There is soo much more to installing a blower than just aquiring the part. He would be looking at a pretty penny depending on what he found and wanted from this outcome. You can't just slap a blower on a car and go. It takes supporting mods, correct tunes, and other small necessities.

Put your stock coils back on (unless there was a problem), Do you have mufflers or a cat back?

For performance gains you can look into underdrive pullies, upper intake manifold plenum, longtube/shorty/midlength headers. The next thing I can recommend is going with a set of gears like they said. These will give you a definite difference in the feel of the car. 3.73s stick or 4.10s auto

Ok guys, first of all real HP is not cheap at all now a days. 1K coins is not bad at all, but it's not a whole lot either. With that milage I wouldn't go with power adder. Definitely save a bit more coins, and try to go forged internals( I would). Of course if you really want to keep your current block.. Good luck and enjoy your ride!!!!!

Yea I'm trying to make the 2v as strong as possible. Just a rough guess how much u think forged internals would run me? Like I said even with 145k she still runs strong. Also im in the USAF stationed in Germany and I really don't want to pay euro to get this done.

2v motors are not that hard to find. Bolt up your power adders. The 2v is a pretty strong motor. Run it till you blow it up. Not that big deal. You would be surprised how much that motor can handle.

I wish I could give you some exact numbers bro, but for this your best bet is to do a good research. I mean not to publicize but america muscle might work, and for $ saver you might want to try eBay. But remember try to get it done in 1 shot, cause putting those things in isn't just like bolting an intake kit. About the labor I'm sorry brotha mechs are going to try to get an arm and probably piece of you leg for this. Unless you can really find a cool mech that can hook you up. Hey good luck with your pony, enjoy!!

I would put a 4:30 gear in the car . No hp gains but it will get up and go at all ranges. I Would not do underdrive pull they will mess with you charging system over time. But for a 1000 dollars you can't do to much that makes a big diff.
