    Cheap horsepower on your Sunfire? Not possible...

    What are your end goals (hp, quarter mile, etc)? We can give you costs from there...

    Pretty much with any car people just do bolt on's, Intake, header, exhaust etc. But as said above, what you are all wanting from the car, and your price need to be known to really suggest

    No such thing. Any time of real power costs money and planning to be successful. If you want more of a realistic answer, ask a question that is more direct to the amount of power you're aiming for and your budget.

    Define cheap, set a budget, set a power goal, buy parts, instal parts, test drive and see if the gains pass the butt dyno test.

    Can you have the head ported, get a different cam, increase injector size?....all of which will need the computer recurved. These are the basics- if you can have head work done, get bigger valves and port the heads. Stuff like this is hidden but if they want to disassemble your motor- and this is not allowed- you're gonna be in for it.

    Can you take the resonator off of the intake tube? If the resonator is tuned for the low end taking it off will help the top end power(by a very small amount). You run at the top end of the power band anyway so that will give you some more velocity. Be sure to test it before you race if you take it off to be sure that you haven't lost power where it is needed in the turns.

    Don't worry nothing will be done until it's too late, there is money to be made.
    Maximum profit and overpopulation will ruin all the major economies.

    You don't have a DSM. A trip to Home Depot for plumbing fitting, 12 ga. wire and vacuum hose will not net you 50 hp.

    or option two:

    Buy a car with the performance you are looking for. You'll save yourself time, money and frustration by going that route.

    So kiss my ass.
