    They will void your powertrain warranty. If your radio, power windows, etc. went out they would still be covered.

    Lots of different ways to gt there. W4M or paschal performance r prob the cheapest. But cheapest isn't always the best.

    U need to decide how you want to get to 600 and then shop from there

    I was looking at replacing the top and bottom pulleys to start with and getting a tune and seeing where things end up there. This winter i would like to build my motor and go all out on this car and make it a beast.

    Nice choice. Will need to add other things or u will be starving your engine. Also will not be optimized. When adding upper n lower certain engines like certain combos. Just need to experiment on the dyno.

    really just depends. I mean you can see about 100 rwhp gain with just injectors, lower pully and a cai.

    u have to tune with any lower pulley. Really depending on your CAI you choose you will also need a tune, and you for sure will with injectors. Car prob won't even start with bigger injectors.

    100 at the wheels is a good increase with just those mods. Nice!

    You'll be safe with anything that doesn't require a tune. Intake and exhaust, but exhaust is mainly for sound. It won't net you much gain for the $$$ you'll spend.

    Best to have a goal in mind. 500 rwhp? 600 rwhp? 1000 rwhp? There are proven combos out there and it's best to match parts with your specific goals. For example, you may not need a fully built LSX bottom end. Could it get you to a set hp goal? Yes, but it may not be the best use of your funds.
