Re: Besides turbo

Get a 5 speed.

Don't do anything til it's a 5 speed.

After you do that, you can think about cams (with springs & retainers), intake manifold, throttle body, port/polish... there's a ton of work left to go in there.

Re: Besides turbo

what header and "chip"? do you have? chances are they're probably robbing you of power. and ditto what phantom said. 5spd swap = like 50 whp more

Re: Besides turbo

ohh jesus dude your already heading down the wrong path with a "chip" and only an intake. you are not gonna get anything worth mentioning you gotta pay to play. if you cant afford either a supercharger or turbo you deff cant afford a good N/A build. which also leads me to believe that you can't afford a full correct 5spd swap either. first take your "chip" out. second save your pennies and swap that trans out. then save them for a long time and go turbo or supercharged its not gonna be cheap.....or don't listen and buy a shyt ton of nitrous and melt your motor if you wanna be cheap...your choice
