Or just save up and turbo it and easily reach your intended power goal.

I have half the parts for Turbo but it isn't a one week process and which alot of people forget you have to speed 1k on the clutch on top of 3k for a true good turbo set up also tuning on top of it<And come with alot of headaches from what I've read>. That more then half the value of our cars. These NA upgrades Tom listed will help while still NA give you some fun and help you alot more once you FI, and I'm half way and thinking if I want to buy a new clutch 1-2 years having it be my DD. You'd be suprized what a SVT with 30-40 NA hp feels like.

180-190 I guess I can live with that. And yea turbo sure gives a lot of power but ive build n/a my whole life not against turbo I just like all motor thats all. If I have to spend 7000 , 9000 to get to 190 so be it done it before.

Tom thanks for your advise

Sounds like a lot just to prove a point. Not worth it IMHO.
You can make better power for cheaper. You just have a wait for the correct parts to surface and snatch them up.

Plan on using more RPM. You won't make 200whp at the stock limiter; least not W/O spending some serious coin on research and development.
