As an owner of a 98 200sx standard model.. I am constantly researching ways to increase the horse on my 115hp GA16. Obviously engine swapping or turbocharging will set anyone good, but what about the invididual lesser expensive changes you can do.


Horsepower

1. Cold Air Intake (10 hp) (150-300 $$)
2. CATBACK Full exhaust w exhaust tip (10 hp) (220-400$$)
3. High Performance Spark Plugs (3-5 hp) (25-40 $$)


Please add to the list of possible add-ons/conversions

Yeah there is no way in hell you'll see those gains. If somebody can prove otherwise I'll do those mods right away!

The power gains are a bit liberal, maybe if you were thinking of crank hp gains they wouldn't be but not at the wheels. Plus you can add some other things like lightened flywheel, underdrive pullies, upgraded throttle, ecu, cams, headers (big gain on headers on virtually any car), basic tuning of the car (upgraded oil, advanced timing, etc), lighter wheels and better tires. This list could go on and on to the point of pretty much rebuilding the entire engine from suspsention to the block, hehe

:D :D :D :D

Maybe in your dreams, you would get that much horsepower, with all that you might get 3hp at the wheels.

your best bet if you want a ga16de to be quick you need a turbo, adds 80whp.
