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

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.
