    advance your timing
    take off the cat
    tune up...(requires $$$ like everything you do to a car to make it faster)

    reliable cheap fast
    you can only have 2 out of the above 3

    NOS octane booster. I used this stuff it was like a 50 shot of nitrous.

    But seriously, you can always polish your exhaust ports, get good spark plugs/wires, good oil, buy/make an intake for $20, advancing your timing is always good, take off your ac. Or stop dicking around with a slow motor and swap somethin else in or turbo it.

    good one karnash.

    take off the a/c , p/s, cruise control. take out your seats, interior panels, radio and speakers, spare tire and all other trunk materials. get rid of everything you won't need.
    it's all free, it'll save you about 80-100 pounds and you can always put it back if you ever need it. just aware that you'll have to get the a/c refilled at a shop if you chose to put it back and you'll have to buy some fluid for your p/s if you put that back.
    fluids = $$
    refilling a/c = $$

    I pulled all the black plastic parts that filled my engine compartment and replaced any that a rock might be able to get in with cheap wire mesh,also drilled 1/4 inch holes above the filter in the filter cover[not shure if this helped or hinderd airflow] and 1/4 inch holes in the recessess in my front bumper,shure seemed to help get cooler air in and hot air out,ran stronger,not like a real recommendation but when I was broke it was something to screw with.

    due to the fact that every PnP is different there is no way to say how much you will gain

    and try homemadeturbo.com
