I am not sure that my definition
and your definition of "too expensive" is... :wink:
A cold air intake, and a cat-back exhaust are always a great place to start when looking for more power.
Also, a performance tune can give you a few more ponies as well.
Trifecta is a vendor here, and they can hook you up with a good tune to meet your needs.
Stay away from Hypertech controllers...
A good tune from a place like Trifecta or Bryan Herter are MUCH
better than what a hand held device like Hypertech.
There are other things you can do that don't cost a lot.
The throttle body coolant bypass is another popular mod.
It works by bypassing the coolant tubes in the throttle body,
thereby giving the intake cooler air.
Also, a lot of guys like to run a 160 degree thermostat
and have the car tuned for that as well.
These things would be a good start.
Like anything, you will find varying opinions of what
is the best "bang for the buck" and what the best
