Re: Am New Here

Go to the 12v pages, http://www.itc.nu/12v/ and look at the tuning
section--there's actually a fair amount out there!  Relatively cheap and
effective modifications would be the throttle body modification with a
K&N panel filter--no real HP gains but a good torque gain.
For real HP, there are lots of engine mods.  One tuner has a claim of
about 230 hp in the end with some pending mods.  I'm not sure how much
HP the automatic transmission will take; maybe another lister knows?  I
think that it will most likely take 200 hp with no problem, and possibly
230, but I would be nervous about adding more than 210 without doing a
little research.
