I saw a 400 lb. whore downtown this weekend. Bet she comes pretty cheap.

The best bang for your buck is Nitrious, but not always the best choice...

If you want to save money than buy another car, that L on the front of your grill really stands for: EE = Everything is Expensive...

ok, according to my research(unreliable in many ways), i came down to this. this is just a bang-for-buck(or the other way) chart, without considering quality of the work, or overall HP.

-Bolt-ons(estimated):-
HKS Hiper: $48/hp
HKS Dragger II: $57/hp
HKS Carbon-Ti: $80/hp
Greddy Evo: $115/hp
5Zigen Fireball: $75/hp
TRD L-Tuned: $85/hp

AEM: $24/hp
Injen: $57/hp (with afc: $37/hp)
PLP: $24.5/hp
SRT: $35/hp

no info on header/midpipe/etc (i did my part, now u do yours)

-F/I:-

PFS:
stage 1: $19/hp
stage 2: $22/hp
stage 3: $18/hp or less

PHR:
stage 2: $23/hp

PLP:
Vortech: $19/hp
Power Dyne: $16/hp

SRT:
stage 1: $19/hp
stage 2: $17/hp
stage 3: $17.5/hp
stage 4: $???

TBKO:
T/C stage 1: $19/hp
S/C stage 1: $20/hp

Toyomoto:
sage 1.5: $26/hp
stage 2: $25/hp

- calculation is done using redline814's charts.
- calculation is done with guestimated flywheel hp. (if you dont like it, shove it up your ugly ass~ :lol: )

rather than just pure bang-for-buck, you MUST consider the future relationship with the company, its customer service, quality of the upgrade, location, feasibility, and whatnot.

Your idea on the $ per hp is interesting. I never really looked at it like that. There are soo many folks on this board who are more concerned about "the best bang for the buck" vs product quality and/or good customer service.

Now...if we could get someone to make a flow-chart that helps a person decide if they can afford F/I and if so, is it a S/C or turbo that best suites their need and lastly...to pick a vendors product that best meets their need/want. Ok, back to reality... :D
