I would like to make my daily driver to and from school a little more fun. How would I achieve SS level horsepower (240-250 crank hp) with anything short of ported heads and cams? Is there a combination of bolt ons that would yield bottom end and high end torque differences either? I like the low end grunt in a car, so top end isn't as important, but still.

I just want an extra couple dozen ponies out of it. I know that the supercharger adds the extra 40 hp, Id just like some mods that may bump up the horsepower anywhere above 25, it doesn't have to be a supercharger. You have to do a top swap and a new transmission anyway, so ill pass on that.

So I'm thinking some rockers, a zzp high flow tb, their generic fenderwell intake or their heat shielded version, a zzp downpipe and a custom made catback. What kind of gains should i expect to see?

The only mod you listed that will increase hp by a good amount is rockers.

Make your own intake then zzp plog,zzp 3" downpipe,zzp hv3, zzp er rockers, overkill tune, those mods are the one you want, if you don't want all those tell me your budget and I'll tell you best bang for buck.

Catbacks won't increase hp for our cars, intakes maybe 3hp so make your own,throttle body isn't worth buying new either
I want a 2.5 because torque and ponies down low and midrange benefit my driving needs the most and a huge exhaust will kill that. So my parts should be a cheapo intake or make one myself, the downpipe that will get rid of the pesky u bend, rockers, and zzp plogs. Are the plogs compatible with the stock crossover?
