    I got a 99 Gsr and was wondering what everybody's opinion was on best way to gain horsepower on a budget ($3000), either FI or turbo. Any ideas and details would be greatly appreciated. ~thanks

    My advice would to be to determine what you want out of the car. I could tell you some great ways to spend that $ on a nice N/A set-up tha you would have to remove all of later-if your heart was set on boost one day.

    bang for the buck would be FI "forced induction = turbo/supercharger"


    up to you man, could go either way

    for that budget I would get the Greddy or Edelbrock turbo kit. And possibly hondata.

    A turo setup on $3000 is going to be tight...Hondata alone will cost $700-$1000 depending on what kinda of options you get.

    i think on a stock engine it bumps it up 58HP but dont know specs on torque, which would definatly be worth your time
