no such thing as cheap upgrades that make good power improvements. just letting you know. you will spend at least a few hundred bucks to make any noticeable power gain.

SVT header conversion
2.5-3in exhaust
SCT xcal3 and tune

thats over a grand right there and its only gonna net 20whp or so. tack another 700-1000 to that and you could have up to a 125whp boost with nitrous which is hands down the biggest bang for your buck power adder available.
