Maybe you should go back and read both our statements and see who is really being hostle or trying to pick an argument. Your statements are also off. I said 90 hp which means we are only differing by 30. I said 2.5 not 2.55. This may be the difference. It doesn't take much with the upper. I here there is a 2.35 now that produces the same as a 10.5 lower. Pick a fight with someone else. And god bless.
    God Bless....

    I agree with Caveman, he doesn't have to prove anything. He was just at first offering his own personal findings from this forum's reputible source, which he didn't have to, but he did for the OP's benefit. Then rayjoedef chimes in with a comment disagreeing with the addition of 100rwhp. good, he's entitled to his opinion even he's a nanny. I'm pretty sure 90whp+ is possible if all the OP wants to do is maximize power through increased boost. Dual pulleys? He'll get hte 90 with a tune, now would it be completely impossible that he would get an aftermarket air intake? more than likely...but maybe he'll tell us for sure. when increasing the boost it's a good idea to introduce some better cooling mods to the system. an air intake is an excellent first step. but if you live in a warm climate year round, you might need to figure out another solution.

    Yea. I'm torn between larger intercooler and meth right now. Leaning towards 3" intercooler from WeaponX.

    Meth requires a retune. Are you talking pre or post boost?

    Already have a tune with the pully. I was going to inject pre boost. What's the difference?

    ----------

    Better yet... which is better?

    Hugh...thanks for the recap but I believe Caveman and I are good. The question inherently asked 100hp gain from a upper, cai, and tune. Nobody mentioned cooling until later in the thread. I may have been a bit aggressive with Caveman but my frustration lies with many claims of high hp with little work. Granted, a lot of cheap hp can be made early in the build but to increase hp by 90-100 at the wheels takes a little more imagination. If you're going to insult me, make sure you re-read what you write for greater impact. You can put your superman cape back in the closet, no saving needed here.

    I'm new here. How much boost are these stock blowers good to? What about how much crank HP the LSA engines can take without going inside the engine or upgrading the heads? Basically, max boost and max HP with headers, injectors and great cooling?

    Like I said, full on nanny. Well here we have it: the OP can't get +100whp with pulley and air intake mods. more are needed. well in a perfect environment, maybe an intake with both upper and lower pulley's can't create a hundred hp on their own, but also remember that when you do "cooling mods" you're not actually "increasing the horsepower," per say, but you’re actually restoring the horsepower lost in heat mainly from the boost. so you can see my point is that if you run your car in northern Germany you probably don’t need any cooling mods due to the cold year-round climate, in which case you can probably make 100 extra horsepower. Someone in, say, Florida may require some cooling mods for that 100, or even someone at a higher elevation..

    more incoherent drool....As much as I'd love to duel, I think maybe death on the vine serves you best.

    I'm interested in the answer to this.
