I do think that 180+ WHP is possible though. A real dyno will happen at some point.
180whp is definitely possible... I'm at 177 now... so not much more to go... .. I can tell ya, new TB'S, plugs, injectors, and maybe Pistons, cams, etc.

I personally don't think we will need injectors till after 200+ WHP, throttle bodies haven't seemed to be a limiting factor so far, one of IE,s customers has cams and personally I won't open my engine, I'm doing strictly bolt ons.

I don't want to say what my car makes for power without having it on a dyno but I can say it feels very healthy. Especially after flashing IE's updated "header tune" today. My MPGs are higher since the header and the car overall just feels stronger especially with the new tune.

I have been interested in cams for these cars. I think this is a way more reasonable option to make a boost in power then forced induction.

Where can I find more info about these, price, hp, etc...
