Exclamation basic modifications (engine)

I was wondering what kind of modifications should be apt for a low budget street racing car.IMO a K&N,freeflow,porting/polishing heads & throttle body are what I consider basics along with cables and sparks, would still appreciate inputs on low budget mods.

He he why dont you put a few stickers and a big GT style wing and a real big exhaust tip? LOL it should give you a 50 HP increase

just kiddin dude... i couldn think of anything else. you get it chipped but then to utilize the full potential you would have to do other mods too which would not be low budget exactly.

say, what car do yuo have on yuor mind for these mods?

3. Better Brakes

hey nitroxx,

a good set of tires is the most important modification in your car.
after that you can do whatever u want to ,according to your pocket.but whatever you do go in steps.i.e if u first install a free flow,drive with it for sometime and understand if it really helps in improving ur performance.then go for a k&n .and then maybe after some time ,the plugs and plug wires,.
if you find someone who can provide a strut brace,then it will the enxt thing on my list after the tires.

hey nitroxx,
you've basically mentioned all the low budget mods. when you install your K&N universal filter find a way to guide in cool air to hit the filter, it works wonders. use a 2 or 3 inch flexible pipe for this mod. keep one end below the bumper or just behind you front grill and face the other end towards the air filter. keep a distance of about 8 inches between the pipe and the filter.
cool air hitting you filter makes a big difference.

What kind of difference would the plugs and wires make in terms of performance numbers? Any before and after stats?

guys,

when going for a free flow exhaust,go for a Stainless steel muffler.it will cost more than the regular one ,but its definitely worth it.
