What you get depends on what you want, and how much trouble you want to go through.

There is CAI, exhaust, power programmer are probably the most cost effective way of getting more power.

You can pull the engine apart and go a little more extreme, heads, cam, etc, or even some long tube headers....

depends on where you want to go with it..

good luck

Exco

Yeah, I'm with Coastie on this one...intake, exhaust and programmer. And, you should have a bit left over if you do some good shopping. Check out our supporting vendors here. They should have what you need at some very good prices.

Good luck with the mods!
