nah man, i think his was in a perfect combo...cuz he dyno'ed everything at once with itr cams, ecu, headers, and etc....so the test pipe varies. i need a place to dyno my car with aem cai and gasket...im hoping 190whp, then maybe ill get the test pipe.
Mods don't gain you HP on top of each other like that. What I mean is that if you have a intake that give you say 10whp, and an exhaust that gives you 6whp, that won't give you 15whp together... more like 12-13whp. I think 170WHP in a base auto is going to be hard to get to.. but it's very possible. I want to get about 160whp myself... but not sure what route I want to take yet
170whp doesnt seem too far off...ionno what ppl might think but i myself am shooting for 260whp...bolt ons alone wont get a whole lot of hp...for beginners try using that 160hp or 200hp at the flywheel and putting it to the wheels...most likely all that power will not hit the wheels but it will make a big difference...the k20a3 dynos around 130hp stock...i/h/e will make a lil, add an aftermarket clutch and lightened flywheel..160whp is not far off
He has an auto tranny... Putting an extra 30HP to the wheels is pretty hard without spending $2000 or more in parts. Best bet is to go supercharger. turbo would prob be too much for em. I would love to get about 30Hp more in my car though. That's enough to take down plenty of cars out there!
