A lot of people can talk but half of them havent done anything to there cars.
Hope this helps alittle. :)
Dont think theres much upgrading you can do to an auto trans. Kinda hating myself a bit for not getting the manual

sporadic Don't ever start a forced-induction project with a specific budget in mind.
Take it from me, even if you do all fabrication yourself, you'll end up spending more than expected.

people have different numbers they post b/c there is no set number. like saying that 250whp will not break the engine but 260whp will. any where in the 200's has been done DD on stock engine, but the more you push the power the more you push your luck.

being in the 200's is safe on stock engine with a GOOD TUNE

Looks like ill be rolling those dice then, upgrading to the RS will bring me to about 265. Hopefully my car doesnt fall apart.

Fswerks might be expensive, but that's because they're reliable.
