^ what kind of extra power were you able to get off the 87 tune and 93 tune, this looks like a good kind of mod for someone looking to keep the engine stock and maintain driveability. Oh was there any increase in MPG?

John, that would be around the 116,xxx miles for the folks here

Pointless to do all those mods if you are going turbo.

Okay that is totally cool.

I did really good for my money using the buy-sell-trade section. If you are gonna turbo in the next year, you just need some basics for the now. Go buy a K&N panel filter and drop it in. Search around B-S-T or, go to a junkyard for a SVT intake snorkel(one of our vendors C-F-M has them new but they are about $80 US). That should put you back $100.00 to start. Then, start looking at 2.5" exhaust. Many of our members are happy with these guys, http://www.mandrelexhaustsystems.com...tec/Categories

But you will have to contact them to see if they ship up north.

Start saving because you'll be needing a 65mm throttle body and adjustable cam gears topped off with having them set on a dyno.

Then there is the suspension and other bits.

I have done, 4-2-1 header(and wrap), 2.5" flex, 2.25 exhaust, Focus sport intake, 65mm throttle body, adjustable cam gears(dyno-tuned), SCT XCAL3 tuned by our very own 1turbofocus, Moog swaybar endlinks, prothane rear swaybar bushings, SVT dampers, Eibach Pro Kit springs(1.5" drop) and and an alignment.

All for $1400.00 US and 18 months.

Things can be done.

Now I am gathering everything to go turbo.

Welcome to the addiction

A tune would be one of the best mods you could do for yours since it's a automatic. It'll firm up the shifts and make it overall much better to drive. After that I'd get a SVT header conversion, that with a tune is easily the most bang/hp for your buck you'll get.
