Good luck with that. The budget is small for that kind of RWHP. 100 extra RWHP will run just over 3K.

You'll have to wait it out for some used parts (headers, injectors, CAI) on that budget

my .02

cai $400
Lower pulley 9.55 $600
ID850's $800
tune $400

i would do longtubes and tb as well but you 2500 budget is a bit light.

that will get you in the ballpark. HP goals are kind of wierd. a 625hp car will spank a 650 HP car that is setup better. IE cooling mods, better tire etc.

you wont be able to get those kind of numbers with onlt 2500 bucks,sorry plus if you wanting to keep the IAT down you really need to get a bigger heat exchanger,and that alone for a good one is 700 to 999,,without paying to install it if you cant do it yourself

If you have an AUTO (not manual), and you are not doing the install work yourself, expect to spend around 10k for 650 to the wheels reliably. You could get there for less, but prob not consistent or reliable.
