I would start with a tune up first. You will end up like me.

Do the tune up first, and replace everything in that list, and then start modifying. You will end up like me.

Dont start modifying. Its more expensive than crack, and twice as addictive.

That also. I have not even begun to modify yet, and I want too! And doing power mods on a N/A is not going to be a huge difference. They start off with such low hp #'s the only way to get real power is through porting the motor.

If you want speed you need a turbo.
