So what's next ? performance parts

Hi folks ! I have a 2005 ZX5 SES auto. I want to upgrade the performance of my car. Here what I have...

Duratec 2.0L :
Steeda SRI with K&N filter
Magnaflow 2,25'' SS exhaust
new engine mounts
new spark plugs

I don't know how many hp my current mods give (intake + exhaust), maybe 5 ahah^^ but I want a little more :)

I want to now what should I install next ? I don't want to delete the Cat, don't want any trouble with inspections. I don't have the cash for S/C or turbo, just want some parts to upgrade engine HP/Torque.


thanks for help !

High flow cat would help a little and a tune.

Nice ! You will like it. Steeda SRI + 2,25'' magnaflow flexback increased my throttle response and added an amazing sound ! I'll do a soundclip from inside my car tomorrow !
