I have hotshot CAI and custom cat back exhaust on my 2005 1.8 sentra. I have basically been follwing the tuning guide as money becomes available, i'm only 17 and work at a grocery store after school.

My parents wont let me get a header b/c we live in NY and they wont pass inspection. But they'll let me do anything else. I should soon have the money for the UR pulley and the sun auto hyper voltage system.

Just wondering where i can go from there, and please dont say turbo b/c i dont have 3K dollars.

im deffinately gonna try and get the pulley sometime soon. But what do u think about the hyper voltage system, is it worth the money and what kind of gains will it provide?

Is there something else i could get for a few extra hp?

Are you saving every single dollar you earn? I work at Super Target and getting 7 bucks an hour and I've managed to get 160 bucks from one check and then 25 the first one.....on friday that will be my third one but I have to pay my car note which is 189

How many hours you work? Work not alot of hours that could be your problem.

I make $6.50 an hour as a cashier with time and a half on sundays. I usually work 4 to 5 days a week for about 4 hours each time. My parents still give me mots of my money but im trying to save for expensive things like car parts.

If you were willing to do the hotshot header which is around 400 - 450 bucks then an APEXI SAFC a/f controller would also be a good upgrade. I would normally say that you should get it AFTER the e/i/h but since you cant get the header and you already have exhaust and intake the SAFC should give you between 3-5whp. I think an SAFC runs around 300 - 400 bucks, but you have to take it to a tuner shop to have them test it on a dyno to find accurate air/fuel ratios. Does that sound about right Mike?
