My current set up is what is in my sig. Honestly... the car doesnt feel much different with all these NA parts, and i regret getting them. Does anyone know that if i get my SAFC tuned i will feel a $100-$150 worth it difference? or should i just leave it for now and save up for the good stuff :cool:

i agree with silver spd. only thing ur missing is headers. if you dont have y pipe, get a header for like $200-$300 used, its probably gona be the biggest HP gain out of all you boltons.

Hiper: probly 5hp
Intake: Dynoed at 7-9HP
HKS Cam: maybe 5-10HP
Headers: Usually 10-15.

THEN TUNE THE SAFC. with all that, you could probably be well over 200RWHP. id put $50 down that when u tune tthe cam and SAFC after u get headers, youd be somewhere between 210 and 215.

=D

best of luck

^^ what he said. Get a header and then tune.

You basically did all the small N/A upgrades without doing the upgrade that gives you the most bang for your buck...the header.

I don't think you'll regret it after getting the header and then tuning, you'll feel a pretty good difference with the butt dyno.

i agree with what the people above have said...get the header...then get it tuned...i noticed my biggest difference after my friend semi-tuned my car...much bigger than any aftermarket engine part that i ever bought.
