    but i'll bet that $1500 will blow out pretty damn quick once you start modifying!!:D

    good luck with it.

    Hi Callan,

    Unfortunately $1500 these days won't get you much, but you can improvise.

    Good point for beginning is to pick up an exhaust and extractors from a HSV.

    Then on the intake fix up the CAI, air filter, free flowing MAF pipe, P&P: MAF and Throttle body and hot water by pass.

    Finally, if you have any $$$ left look at improving your diff ratio.

    Hope I have helped,

    Mark
