Fswerks might be expensive, but that's because they're reliable.
ive read up on it, and it seems like everyone has different numbers. some people say our internals are only good till 180whp. then others say 250whp. Im thinking if your gonna get try and get high numbers. buy yourself a upgrade on your tranny. from what i read, a stock clutch can handle 40-60 more horse power.(thats just what i read, i dont have any experience in transmissions)and on a auto they cant handle as much a manual tranny. maybe buy some different pistons and re-do the head to prevent detonation of your engine. but like i said i dont know, thats what i got out of doing research. A lot of people can talk but half of them havent done anything to there cars.
Hope this helps alittle. :)
