what motor do you have?

and you're in the wrong forum technically. figure out which motor you have and post in that engine's performance chat forum.

^^^ Dyno... then you will know

Oh yeah... the short shifter and wrap around wing add 5hp/5tq each...

Seriously though, you start at 130bhp (at the crank), which translates to around 100 at the wheels give/take 5hp. The JBA headers and Borla cat/back may allow you around 9-10hp, along with ligher rims (another 3 or 4).

Add an SVT airbox and snorkel, a 65mm throttle body and stage 2 camshafts to max out your NA horsepower. If you want more, go get a JRSC w/BBK (low end) or a Turbo (high end).

Rims will give you no extra horsepower just less weight.

JBA Headers 1 to 3HP gain
borla cat-back 3 to 5 HP gain

short shifter 5 speed NO HP GAIN
sway bars NO HP GAIN
wrap around wing NO HP GAIN
lighter rims and tires NO HP GAIN

So my guess would be your about 105 stock and add 4 for mods is 109 - 111 at the wheels
