    Hp Gains for under $1500

    I've got a buddy who has a BRZ And dropped $1600 on upgrades for his car full bolt ons and only has only achieved a gain of 18hp. What can we achieve with $1500? Just for shits and giggles include a list of what you'd run with $1500 and what kind of gains we'd be looking at?

    If he only gained 18hp he did something wrong, that car responds very well to bolt ons and such. Even length header, catback, intake and tune good for way more than 18hp on brz.

    I did my first turbo kit for half of that. My second kit still cost less than $1500, but close.

    For $1500 you should be able to double stock horsepower.

    I'll sell you a custom supercharger kit. $1500 shipped. This is true one of a kind and included everything you need. Will be fine on a stock motor. I'll set it up how you want power wise.

    Hmm. Any pics?

    I built my first turbo kit off of craigslist and eBay for a little over 1100. Not sure HP gain but a lot more then 18 HP. Then again the import guys now are all about high end brand names. If its not hks or Perrin or those other brands it dosnt matter to them. Buddy ofine spent 80 buxs on a Perrin licence plate frame for his sti.

    I'll post some pics.
    There is easily double and then some plus time for fab in the kit.

    Intake, header, exhaust, tune. That will get you 18hp.

    If you aren't valuing time & fab, then there is a whole world of options.

    Anyone that wants pics of the S.C pm me your email.
    You would have to be a 1/2 gen head and you do lose PS. Must run the included modified aluminum valve cover as well as the included TB bend.

    It's basically all bolt on for a 1/2 g car.
    Just add your own tuning solution.

    Who else. This thing needs a new home. Need room and cash for new projects in the works!
    Truly one of a kind. The injectors and fab work alone would cost what the sale price is.
