Good ideas welcome!

Any ideas of cheaper ways to get more power are appreciated. Just small things I could do. Wanting a supercharger but trying to get as much power I can till I get one. Thanks.

I hope you mean $65 and not 65 hp because if you mean hp, CAI will give you a minimal gain.

Buy a gaskit set and port out ur intake (easy to do if ur not hopeless) 4 prong platnum spark plugs and plug wires labour u do ur self and most things arnot to expencive if ur thinking more strip less street u can pull excess weight out which cost nothing but a little time like rear seats carpets headliner sound deadning meteral( which is heavier then it looks) moving the battery to the trunk to help with weight distrobution and a chip or tune for 93 octain can really help to. Swaping gears helps to. Not all these things nessaserally add power but deffanetly help in the delivery of what u have there for seaming as though u have more e.i. The diffrence in a 500 hp 1400 pound car accelerating or a 500hp 3000 pound car accelerating.

To port ur intake ull need a dremal style device ether plug in or air and a good ball or diamond ball bit. gaskit matching is nice but dont take to much off! (leave a little room for error) and throttle body and or injectors but now were getting up there in $$ lol

Re: Good ideas welcome!

try freeing up the power you already have to the wheels to. lighter drivetrain components = faster rev.
