Default budget power?

Love the 318. See lots of guys are saying just go 360. I don't wanna go that way because it's a low mileage motor. I have done a few things to it already. So I'm wondering about a cam and maybe headers. Has anyone tried this. And what parts you went with. And did it work without Re doing to much on the heads. Or just keep saving money.

Forced induction all day with a 5.2, best way to make them sing if you ask me.

Ok will. Do. I do live in Canada so looks like it's going like a 4000 dollar part. Guess I gotta work harder. Prochargers are just about 7000 here.

Oh yeah, those pro chargers are nice and all but if you don't want more than 650RWHP then the torque storm is fine. It's what I'm going to use to round out my top end.

I do recommend getting an intercooler as that kit relies on meth injection to prevent detonation.

Good luck!

It's useless on an engine the size of yours, will not be able to flow anywhere near enough air.

Stock heads will support 400hp at 6,000rpm in naturally aspirated form. Can easily hit that with cam/intake/exhaust mods, and computer tuning.
