    Whats the best way to gain 30 to 50 hp without forced air, the only two places I can find that has superchargers URD and LC engineer they both have a kit for $4500 but it brings rwhp to 250 I am not looking to gain that kinda hp.

    Every bolt on imaginable to get it without doing any serious work, and i still dont think you will get more than around 20ish extra and thats on the motor not to the wheels.

    You *might* be able to gain 20-25hp by adding an intake, headers, exhaust, computer (if you can find one), etc. and that gain will only be fully realized near redline rpms. But I'm pretty sure it's not possible to gain anywhere near 50 hp in the 2.7 4cyl engine without forced induction or without opening the motor and replacing vital components (pistons, cams, etc) and running premium for the higher compression.

    I'd say it's below 15. I have intake/headers and it makes a difference spinning the larger tires, re-gearing probably helped the most. Going to a 4.88 was probably the best mod I've done so far. Still slow as mole asses.
