you can polish every part of your engine 2.0l and after spending more money on them upgrades than buying a new Ford Focus ST you might barely make 200, when for $350 you can add a 50 hp NOS and call it a day.. and still get 30 MPG

Dumping crap loads of money into the NA engine is not worth it if all you want is speed..

So either Boost or hot shot if on the cheap... IMO...
Not even, u can get 180 on a 2.3 with I/h/e/IM tune U can get even more with cams
