98 engine MOD help

So I posted a thread in the gen. tech, but I figured since my bros drivin 5th gens only would know more.

So I have had my 98 lude for a year. I have it heavily moded with supension and exterior, but under the hood I only have a AEM V2 intake, DC headers and a HKS dragger ekhaust with custom piping that my dad and I put on. So does anyone have any suggestions to get some power out of my engine for a reasonable price?

What E said also change out that header(singular) to something a little better than a DC which is pretty much stock and worthless.

Even a small 35 or 50 shot of nitrous would give you a little more pep as well.

Or cut the downpipe at the collector and weld in 2.5" piping instead of the 2" that DC put, which is actually stock diameter so that $400 header is really just a prettier stock one, maybe a little lighter too but not worth what you paid, even if it was $50.

Cams and the ECU, after the header. Sig pics look great too mate.

I appreciate it guys!

When I actually bought my car the only thing it had was the header and and like and exhaust from like pepboys or someplace. I changed it out and put custom piping to the exhaust.
