    That car is not making that power on those mods.

    Unless your radiator is broken or your car has cooling problems (like it might if it's a road race track car), then there is no need for a larger radiator. The pulley is something that's really up to you if it's something you deem worth your time considering it's something minor.

    Springs are going to be much more budget minded since you're wanting to do small stuff. GOOD coilovers start at around $1,500. A good spring/strut combination is going to be leagues better than any of the cheaper coilovers.

    it vents the air. i didn't mean dollar value as well as small things just less technical things for now.as for the hp you guys are def right i didn't know what i was think when i put that there. we were thinking about the tein coil overs their about 2k. we plan on doing AutoX so we kinda needa do it anyway. I do appreciate all of the opinions tho and thanks for the feed back. but we really figured out a ton of **** we can do.Brfatal made me think abit were prolly gonna put a kit on it after we do the suspension and wait on the performance and what not for a little down the road. Except things like the pulleys etc. But uhh ill post the dyno read outs or the video if we make one.


    and again thanks

    If you're planning on AutoX what class are you going to be racing in? At this point you're looking at street prepared, which is a class you're not really going to be very competitive in. Suspension, wheels/tires, and driver are the most important things when it comes to AutoX, often times power is sacrificed in order to have a better turning machine.

    Make sure you decide what class you want to be in before you start modifying, it's rather easy to go out of the class restrictions these days, and if you plan to compete in order to place, you're going to need to adhere to the strictest of these restrictions.
