Re: Cheap Speed?

honestly i dont think their really is cheap speed. Weight reduciton, removal of parastics, DIY, all those are okay, and will make you a little faster, but not a whole lot. The only way to make speed is to swap or foced induction. Otherwise it really isnt worth it. I guess though its really up to you, if you think making an extra .5 seconds on he quarter mile is worth a car that looks, feels, and drives like crap then go ahead.

The cheapest speed in my book will always be N02. 500 bucks and you can easily get 100HP, 5 bucks a HP isnt bad at all. And you can get used nitrous kits for even less on ebay and such.
