Easy power

What is the easiest and cheapest for a few extra horse power besides gearing it, it's my daily driver and I don't really want low gears. Fund is around 300 or so. I have bbk cold air intake, intake manifold and short throw shifter. I know many are going to say tb and plenum combo, any other ideas?

A little 25 or 50 shot should be ok but a tune like a bama chip would be better because u can re tune it for what ever u do later on its just one of those things you will end up doing later on anyway so might as well do it now and pick up 20 or so hp. Then ur ready if u want to go blown or turbo or n2o just need to retune for ur power adder and off u go.

A tuner will run you about $350!... And the pipes you can find for around $200!.. But personally I would do the tuner first!.. As I have stated in other threads, it's the thing that really helps bring it all together!...

As for which one is best!.. That is mostly based off of personally preference!.. I got the DiabloSport Preditor because at the time it appeared to be the best one and had the most options I wanted!.. I have heard alot of good things about the SCT one from AmericanMuscle!..

I really do suggest reading up on them all as much as you can!..

I would never suggest putting nos in your car, a tuner is the way to go for sure.
