How can I make my car faster?

So I was bored all day today and I couldn't help but think about how much faster my friends new 11 mustang GT is compared to my 94 Si. So because I of this I started to just google little things I could do to make it atleast a little faster. What mainly caught my eye was getting a cold air intake or performance chip. What I want to ask if those work well and if anyone knows of good products that would fit a 94, for not to much. Also if someone would be able to tell me a little more about them, I looked them up on wiki, along with having a small amount of knowledge about them already, but I'm sure someone here could tell me more about them. Anything would be helpful, thanks in advance.

just no

id normally go into detail... But just no

As for a cai if its a fair weather day only car sure why not you might squeeze an extra 5 hp outta the engine if lucky. Id worry about the extra chance for hydro lock if its a dd and u throw on a true cai though.

Theres lots of articles/threads on 4th gen performance, check out the 4g section. One major cheap improvement you can make to performance is tires.

For any major performance gains its not gonna be cheap if you want it to be reliable just for a heads up.

Re: How can I make my car faster?

hate to say it, but those 5.0's are pretty beastly. they put down around 412 hp and 390 lbs of torque. i have seen a few bone stock run mid 12's. i think 12.5 is the fastest stock time so far....

12.04 with 117 mph trapped...with minor bolt ons...

buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut, x2 on getting a "chip" just dont do it. if you want to keep up with your buddy, its going to cost. ALOT.

Yeah there's no cheap way to keep up with a new 5.0 Mustang. Even the new V6 is pretty potent
