hmm

spark plugs probably aren't going to do much for you. a k and n air filter and crap like that is expensive and doesn't really do too much of anything. if you don't want to spend a lot of money drive like my grandma and like it.

performace chip - most useable horsepower for the money.

and spark plugs may make you alittle more efficent and the overall feel better, but you won't gain much power(most likely none).

If you want more hp anouther good way to go is to get a turbo kit. For the price range that you want you are looking at an extra 10 to 30 hp depending on the brand. go to this site for a few ideas http://www.horsepowerfreaks.com

Turbo kits aren't exactly cheap, bro. over 1 grand isn't my idea of cheap.

yeah, but that thing was tin foil and a house fan slapped together. The warranty probably doesn't cover that much either.

You also might consider removing unnecessary weight from the car... You don't state what purpose this car serves, but the less weight your engine has to move, the better.

On my rx7, I have no stereo. I also removed the power steering and AC, which cut ALOT of weight off the nose of the car, and freed-up at least a few ponies... Unfortunately, I didn't dyno it before and after to find out how much.

Depending on the car, a cold-air intake might buy a couple hp, and a high-flow cat and decent exhaust will also help.

The cheap turbos are not going to last long but if you need a short quick boost then go for it. but if you want it to last then yes you are looking at a lot of money from 500 to like 3000. but reducing the weight would help a lot to. And getting a new inter cooler or air intake or even new headers well help a little.

Kid never stated the car he has people. Might be driving a HEMI for all we know. I know i know! But it's funny...Hemi!!! Anyways, if he has a TT Supra then a CAI would help tremendously for the price. And yes removing shit is the only free good way to get power.
