Ways to squeeze all the hp out of n/a 4v?

I'm looking for more hp but have run out of obvious mods.

04 mach 1 5 speed
I've got LT's
Full exhaust
BBK throttle body
K&N CAI

I was recently dynoed at 306 hp 307 tq

I'm running a stock tune, haven't forked up the $380 for a tuner yet.

Any other mods i could do to bump up the numbers?

Please don't say blower or nitrous, pretty obvious.

I think tuner would be a good choice. Can't really think of anything else besides cams or nitrous

The 4v is really expensive to mod NA, thats why most people pick boost. But if you want NA a good place to start would be cams and a stroker kit.

Exactly. Mod motors need boost to make power.

Not necessarily. And modulars usually benefit more from boosting than other types of motors

LS don't really need boost for power. Mods do.

Yeah but mods like boost because they can't make power without. HCI LS is beast.

Stay N/A my friend. Just saying, HCI the slut and gear her rear. At least mehs goal. You can make a ton of hp with power adders (no duh), but like I say lets run motor to motor then we'll talk. That's why to me rice buckets with 600+ horsies are still turds, Race wise.

I wanted to go all motor at first too but others on here convinced me it would be cheaper to go fi (which it is).

But I still might throw a nice cam in my car anyways. Almost got a good deal a while back but didn't go through.

I just don't get when people say nitrous is cheating. In like "uhhh... How is it cheating if he told you he has it???" It's a power adder just like turbo/sc

Cams / Full exhaust / Suspension / Ported Lower / Dyno Tune / Slicks / 410s and you'll be in the low 12s - high 11s
