I heard from a credible source that the most you can ever get out of an N/A 2.2 would be somewhere around 215hp at the crank, but that would come at a heavy price. Full bolt-ons (CAI, 2.4 TB/IM, cams, header/catless dp, cat-back) and an aggressive tune. At which point it would be a better bet to go FI, moar power for equal $$$

Personally I've spent about $1,400 for a CAI, header/dp and cat-back and she makes nowhere near 200hp lemme tell you that lol. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

That's what you get when you live in Canada, ridiculous shipping and duty rates. I'm not proud of the money I spent, but that's my reality. (It comes out to $1,350 US if that helps a little lol)

I didn't decide to modify my car because it was a cheap and logical thing to do. It takes money and I accepted that, so I'm not complaining about the bill. I sleep in a comfortable bed and I eat decent food, so I have nothing to whine about.
