Well to honestly answer that question we are going to need more information from you. Year and model of your balt, engine size, current mods, ect. Just keep this in mind, when modding a car for the performance aspects, you have 3 options, cheap, reliable, and fast, but you can only choose 2 of the 3. For example, if you want reliable and cheap, it's not going to be fast, or if you want fast and reliable, it's not going to be cheap.. Catch my drift? :)

How much hp are you actually looking for with your car, op
I'd moreso be willing to ask what the budget is.

He says he wants more power, but then you could probably build a pretty stout, bored/stroked/fully balanced N/A motor for what...five grand or so?

Or spend a fifth of that and toss a M62 on it and make the same amount of power?

Options, broham...options.

No specific amount just as much as I can get with smaller mods considering I don't have enough money for a TC/SC because I'm only 16 lol

Since you have an 07 you have a couple options for tunes. Trifecta and HP. I know we had a big discussion about the differences not too long ago. I'll try to find it.

Read page 2 of this thread. Might as well read the entire thread, most of your questions will be answered there.

Thanks for finding that for me! I will definitely read it now!

As stated. You could spend 2k on bolt ons and get maybe 20whp or spend 2-2.5j and supercharge it
yeah id have to agree with this too...

What's a m62? Y'all use acronyms and specific names and I get lost. I know cars but I feel like your speaking a different language.
