Exactly, wait a little while to get a tune.

HF cats, ported throttle body, and intake is all you can do.

Im not one of those, should have gotten a V8 guys, but if you really want to enjoy and mod a 1/4 track car, then you need a V8, you are just so limited with what you have now.

Don't feel I'm throwing numbers around asking for advise, (HOW TO) not that mechanically inclined on how to measure at the crank or to the wheels

help a fellow member out and perhaps explain a little more

If you are overly concerned about warranty, finacials and want to upgrade say in a few years then keep it as is. Another 15hp isn't gonna make any real difference anyways. And remember mods don't increase the cars value down the road. If you want to know where you currently stand. Simply put your stock airbox back on and make a couple dyno passes. Then swap back and do a couple more and see the gain you got. Take your rwhp numbers from dyno and add about 15% to get your crank numbers.

Your axleback didn't add much of anything other than weight loss. A ported TB might gain you a pony or two MAYBE. But, will improve throttle response.

izach, all you can really do is Intake, Exhaust,and since were 2012 and up cant do Headers YET.. PTB may give u something but nothing that is going to make a big difference. its just gives you better throttle response, and sure if it even matters on a manuel.

FI adds a lot, the LFXs love it.

Good info, to be honest I saw a Hood emblem thats BAD AZZ read (HP-323) figured I want to do the same but with HP-350 yet wanted to be sure my car actually did have 350 HP

I agree, stick with the CAI & Exhaust for now see what numbers I pull
