No matter how nice of car a guy like me drives, there is always two questions we want to know, “How much horsepower does it have?” and “How do I get more power?” There are several easy ways to add more power to your car without breaking the bank or completely overhauling your ride.
The first way to add more horsepower is to install a cold-air-intake in the place of the car’s stock air intake. All you need to do is remove the stock air-filter along with the stock intake-hose from the intake manifold. Then you put the new intake hose on will the new air filter on it and you are set*. Not only will this add 5-8 HP to your car, it will also help improve your car’s fuel economy, because of the better airflow. If you decide to make this modification to your car, you will never have to buy a new air-filter (you will have to clean the air filter every few years, but a kit to do this only cost around $10). Depending on the brand you go with this add can cost less then $100 to over $250 (I suggest AirAid). (more…)
