what motor do you have?

and you're in the wrong forum technically. figure out which motor you have and post in that engine's performance chat forum.

^^^ Dyno... then you will know

Oh yeah... the short shifter and wrap around wing add 5hp/5tq each...

Seriously though, you start at 130bhp (at the crank), which translates to around 100 at the wheels give/take 5hp. The JBA headers and Borla cat/back may allow you around 9-10hp, along with ligher rims (another 3 or 4).

Add an SVT airbox and snorkel, a 65mm throttle body and stage 2 camshafts to max out your NA horsepower. If you want more, go get a JRSC w/BBK (low end) or a Turbo (high end).

Rims will give you no extra horsepower just less weight.
