Depends on your definition of cheap. Offroad x and tune should get you 50rwhp for $500 if you do it right. That's cheap by most standards.

No cheap mods are going to be a project.. Putting on a new front fascia and grille can take some time with a buddy n a few beers. Other than that a full exhaust (headers, xpipe, cats, and axleback) setup is goin to be ur cheapest project and thatll run u close to 1500 if not more.

I flipped the lid on the air cleaner and advanced the timing on my grandma's '73 Riviera - free.

Yeah, maybe some 2.25" headers with bullet mufflers on the collectors, and a .700+ lift cam on a 110 LSA. She'll never notice.
