Re: Cheap Speed?

I voted "There is no cheap speed" B/c even nitrous is not cheap if you install it right and get everything you need to run big shots.

DIY is awesome.

freebie mods will release some power on a stock car. re routing coolant lines, taking the stock resonator off, boreing your intake manifold and TB with a dremel...lol. you could even make your own cai.

weight reduction is good, and cheap, but will only do so much.

good tires to help you hook up is also good.

after that its all gonna cost ya...

Re: Cheap Speed?

I voted other.
Steal shit.

edit: About the coolant lines, can somebody explain how that would free up some ponies, and conjure up a little how-to for me? And oh yeah, I was kidding about stealing.
