Re: gettin my lude on the right path

Intakes aren't too expensive...start with one of those. Very easy to install..simple bolt on applications is where you wanna start.

Maybe later a new header, intake manifold..etc.

Re: gettin my lude on the right path

How many miles do you have on it? And how much hp are you wanting?

I would make sure everything is in good working order before you do anything to it.. Get a tune up and check your compression and do any service that's pass do or coming up

Re: gettin my lude on the right path

wow dident know thers people that cant spell it lol and right now the cars at about 220,000 miles and my mechanic said the only thing he said needs to b fixed is the breaks and timing belt. other than that the car looks emaculat. i would like to get it neer 300hp but if i dont got enough money anythings better then nothing.

also i was looking into the weapon r brand. anyone one used it befor?

1 more question. if i get headers and intakes if i eventualy turbo her will i have to get ride of them?

Re: gettin my lude on the right path

this is just my opinion but i doubt you are gonna get 300hp outta an engine wit 220k on it and little funds, if i were you i would stick with some minor bolt ons and not go too crazy cuz you will proly end up blowin your motor unless....you wanna do an engine swap in the future
