I have an '01 Z with 20k miles and I'd like to add
more power. I think 40-50HP would keep me happy :)
What are the least expensive upgrades I can do?
Also, I understand the stock Ti exhaust is good, but
I'd prefer a bit louder/meaner sound. What should I do?

Thanks for your help.

Welcome aboard, We are like the horsepower store of ideas.
40-50 hp= intake, long tube headers. + $$$

Better Sound= borlas, corsas, most aftermkt + $$$

Thanks for the info. I am from the "import" world :eek: so I
am not familiar with the best brands for these domestic rigs.
Who makes the long tube headers? Do you use them with
stock cat-back exhaust? Is it common for people to replace
the stock Ti mufflers with aftermarket...is it just for sound?
Also, where I live we have no smog tests, can all the cats
be removed?

Thanks again,

To increase HP

I would consider:
1. T1 Intake from Halltech
2. a good aftermarket CAT back system, either
Corsa's Titanium Race set up ($1,395) or
BBB PRT Speedway
3. Long Tube headers
4. CNC Head and Cam package
5. Ported Throttle Body

Halltech T1
Longtube Headers (B&B shortys if you want bolt-on)
#30 injectors
Scan tool
MAFT

B&B PRT cat back (for that "makes kids and small animals run for cover" sound) weighs a few more pounds than the factory Ti system, probably not much on HP gains

X-pipe to do away with that burbbling popping sound under decelleration
