Yes stickers.... they add horsepower depending on the sticker. Its usually proportional to the capability of the real product. ^_^

Yeah, if you don't have alot right now the only thing that may help you in the HP catagory is an intake. Horsepower is usually, directly proportional to $$.

for $200.00 I'd give the OBX headers and Bomz Intake a shot... I know the Intake is good from lightspeeds reports on it but the headers who knows... However, if you're just working slow... That header may very well work fine for at least a while till you can afford something better... and it will give you some gains... My friend always used to say that I can expect to pay around $5-$15 for 1 HP on average and it seems to be somewhat true in my case anyway...

Yeah, that cost is true in all cases. Unless you manage to find a car that was already built up at the junkyard, but those chances are slim to none. You would have a better chance of actually knowing someone you manufactures all of that
