bolt ons... Intake, exhaust, header, maybe some other goodies... might be lookin at a lil over 150hp then? kinda a guess, but bottom line is unless you're willing to pay a couple G's for the DD turbo, don't expect major increases happywink

uhhh headers, Intake and exhaust will add you about 15-20 extra hp...and you should be able to get them all with 1500 considering you have a GT and the headers for them only run about 450 or something.

The header is more around 350. With only 1500 in mods on the GT, do not expect to get past 140 whp.

Intake headers exhaust pulley and the laughing gas should be around $1500. all those together and you should be able to get pretty close to 200 hp with the juice. thumbsup

but unless you're racing on the tracks, arnt N02 pretty much impractical since its like illegal on the streets? unless you're willing to take the risk...

Okay, let me clear this up... N2O is not illegal, so long as you don't tamper with the existing emissions controls. nitrous is street legal, so long as you don't remove any sensors or your cat, you'll be okay. California may be a different story, but I'm speaking generally here. some kits are CARB approved, so just know what you are buying before you shell out the cash.

N2O will add stress to engine components, just as a turbo or SC would. don't overdo it, and you should be okay, only spray when you are racing, or you absolutely need the extra HP.

Also, be sure to use a WOT switch and not a pushbutton for the Nitrous, I can't count how many times some ricer blew his motor because he put his setup on a button. Nitrous should only be engaged at wide-open throttle anyways, so it's a sound investment.
