Go over and look at/read the dyno thread. WITH a tune 30hp with intake, exhaust.
Since we can't tune there's no telling for sure what we'll get out of all this. Your hp and torque will both go up. Gas mileage will most likely go down. There are a ton of factors to consider. Do some reading around the forum. Check out the 2nd Gen's performance thread to see what a similar engine was making with similar mods.
