    You can have one or the other, you can't have more HP without using more gas, it's just the nature of the beast. So, what are you looking for then? More HP or better MPG?

    Your best bet would be Doug Thorley Headers. No extra gas, lil extra hp.

    You could also alternate between feather foot and lead foot mods depending on what you want :p

    Well which do you want? HP costs money. The faster you want to go, the more its going to cost.

    Simple bolt-ons, and a tune will get you some decent gains (intake, headers, catback, x-1). Your MPG will depend on your right foot control.

    A list from A-Z with prices? Not to be rude, but do your own searching and research right here on TW.. read the product review section...

    Bolt-on's will give you small gains, and as stated in earlier reply, MPG is mostly controlled by your right foot. I did a few mods, probably gained a couple ponies, and am getting better MPG than stock, mostly because I don't have to downshift as much.

    Please fill out your profile.. kinda hard to offer suggestions without knowing exactly what you're driving.
