What is your 'low cost budget'??

Because here is a list of mods that you can do:

Intake: ~$200
Stainless steel Downpipe:~$220
Catback:~400 (custom), ~800 (manufacture bolt-on kit)
Injectors: ~$350
BOV: ~$30
Intercooler: ~$800
Tune: ~400 (piggy back ecu), ~600 (set tune from shop)

Total: ~$2400

I don't know what numbers you should be putting down because I am LSJ and don't really read into the LNFs, but it will be well over 300hp to the wheels.

i dont really have a price range, i just want to find the ways of spending the least amount of money bc i have a lot of bills to pay. ive been doing research myself and i was looking into intake, DP, charge piping, exhaust, and then either trifecta or HP tune. but youd say injectors? and what BOV have you found for $30? lol

well its going to be kina hard to get over 400hp with just bolt on and tune. most ppl are around 315-320whp with all that. best way to do that is just a turbo kit. but there about 4k

Are you serious?? With all those mods I listed to the LNF, it still doesn't surpass more than 350hp? Thats garbage in my opinion....

Hmmmm. That is really disappointing too. But I do remember that reading somewhere that the stock turbos are already maxed as is. Basically you can push maybe six pound of boost over stock and that is risking it right??

thanks skoal boy. do you have any opinions on the ZZ performance turbo kit for the LNF? i was looking into that, but i notice it says it comes with a k&n air filter, it doesnt say intake, so is it still the stock piping for the air intake? and how would you rate that kit overall?

RedSStreak- well i have seen some go upto 27-29psi on the stock turbo, which isnt good for it cause it can make it over spool. but most tunes are set at 20-23psi.

slobalt ss. i really cant say anything about the zzp kit. I dont know anyone that has it or used it. if you look back at the stage one kit it said Aluminum turbo intake tubing with black powder-coat finish which would be the intake, and it come with a k&n filter. but if you want everything, all bolt on wiht this kit you need to get the stage 3.
