Intake. Throttle body (VMAX ported or Overkill 80mm). Solo high flow cats, or other catless downpipes. Intake manifold spacer (again from Overkill). There are options. A simple search will get you the answers you're looking for.

Get an overkill tune with the E-85 option.

Forced induction like a supercharger or twin turbos should do it.

Why the wise azz response? F.I. is a valid option to increase HP. Sheesh. Feels like I'm around a bunch of LS3 V8 owners here.

One of the fastest Vipers in the 1/4mi has a blower, twin turbos and on top of that he sprays. The SRT Hellcat X has a pair of turbochargers installed with the stock block and blower. Just two examples.

I've seen them done too. Along with double Super chargers also.

Very realistic and affordable option - Order an Overkill Tune and Jacfab spacer.

I just did after too much research and bunch of indecisiveness. It was a tough choice but I weighed my options very carefully.

When it comes down to it, what is your goal? Straight line quarter times, auto cross, road courses.

F.I. is a realistic option. Look at our own Derek on here. He had almost every bolt-on running E-85 with an Overkill tune and he still decided to go F.I. when it was all said and done. There must be a reason why.
