Re: Trying to Semi build my head...what should i do?

id suggest getting the type s intake manifold and get a s2k throttle body, but thats just from someone who is still learning and what not. someone more knowledgible will chim in soon enough

euro R intake manifold, have your throttle body opened up to match the euro R.

No turbo? No new cams but if you got money to spend...

Brain Crower stage 2 cams, BC springs and retainers.

stop taking the word of random people on the internet. If you really want help, call a local performance shop who has experience with what you are wanting to do. Or you can ask me. But i can tell you right now, what i would tell you to do will break your wallet since i'm assuming you cant do the labor.

NA takes thought. You cant just slap a bunch of parts together and hope that it works. Your going to end up wasting a **** ton of money to get **** for power because the parts arent going to work well together. NA is not cheap whatsoever when you do it correctly. Especially when you have to pay someone else to do the labor.

nothing wrong with a type S intake the gains vs the cost are on par, i.e. both minimal
