put a big spoiler on it...then add stickers from random japanese manufacturers, and put a cheap 20 dollar ebay muffler on it..youll be a hit with the ladies i swear to you

dont forget chrome spinning hubcaps and lights...just go to pep boys to the lighting aisle and have a ball..then move to the accesories aisle and grab all the vents and stuff that you can

in the end this will be your result



picture that but with a camaro

Well back to the original poster. Well Like Giant said Nitrous is a good way but it is not really cheap
You need
Purge
FPSS
Air Fuel Ratio Gauge
Wideband
Colder plugs
Hell of a tune
Plus a lot more stuff that I got tired of listing
And I strongly recommend going through the ignition system and strengthening the weak points especially on the LT1.

Also its wise to before you start sprayin a car to do all the bolt ons or some at least. Like CAI, Elbow, Headers, and Catback. 1.6RRs, TB, UDPs, and EWP optional.

I recommend looking into the dynotune kits. Cant remeber the site just good that.

Nitrous can be safe but there is always that chance of a nitrou backfire which is usually expensive.

Nitrous is usually regarded as cheap because people half ass there kits and dont get all the parts. If your gonna do it do it right unless you are prepared to replace a motor.

Its probably cheaper than a GOOD FI setup but I bet you could probably do a pretty good N/A build for just slightly more, then you'd always have power.

the best advice i can give to the postr is work more and ask less stupid questions. then go to a shop, and have then put parts on for you (with the money you make working and not asking dumbass questions youll have enough). try not to get yourself banned from the shop for saying "i have an exhaust but it doesnt sound like a ferrari! wtf guys?!?"

Yah I bet a single 90* bend and a tip transform the sound from you 115 hp 4 cylinder thats sounds like a fart into a 19K RPM 3L (maybe) V10 with around 900 hp.

You PAID SOMEONE to poorly weld your exhaust. I'd rather you suggest he research and ask MORE questions and investigate his own car first-hand. A real enthusiast doesn't want to pay someone to build their car for them...you bitch.

If he doesn't ask stupid questions, he'll get stuck with a stupid car that he'll want to sell after adding tons of money worth of no-go-fast bullshit to his car. Remember yourself?
