hey all i was reading somewhere it's not that hard to get a 5L 304 165kws to 190kws with a few cheap mods..

i've put a SS induction and a K&N filter on. it already had a decent exhaust on the car when i bought it so. Any idea on how to get to 190kws cheap

A tune would be your best bet, yes.

That's pretty much about right, You will go 190rwhp (190kw) on a tune only most of the time, Nothing to special about that much power for a stock 304. With just the right exhaust and a manual box you can go to about 230 rwhp

also switch to a good quality full synthetic oil of the correct grade, oh and some nice extractors if you don't have them yet, it all helps

no way, thats 170rwkw, thats alot of power to get out of a 5ltr for just a tune, exhuast and manual.

We are running a VC 308 with injected heads, an auto, extractors and a single 2 1/2" with a Haltech and it is just under 250rwhp.....
