<font color='#000000'>best way to gain HP with out cost of ur arm is to put bigger exust system it will cost under $300 will give about 5-15 more hp depend on how far u changed ur exust system. and cold intake helps too but it looks like if u going to spend 150 on cold intake which on;y gives u 10% gain on ur hp (max) put little more money and put exust system.</font>

<font color='#000000'>I already added a cat back exhaust system.  i didnt really notice too much power increase.  i hear i should have gotten a high flow cat.  the only real increase i felt is with the upper rpms.  with my cars power band, i want something that will really help in the 2500-5000 rpm range. thats where this car is really a dog.  from 5000-8000 rpm, not much can touch it, but it takes a while to get there!!
