I was talkin to some friends today about makin some minor mods to my car to get it slightly faster than stock, (and maybe hide it from my dad until I go to college) and we were talkin about maybe just buyin a K&N air filter to replace the stock with, anyone know how much hp it gives or if its worth it?
Was also thinkin maybe get a programmer and was curious what y'all thought of as far as companies for the programmers, figured i could use it when i was drivin then default it back to factory settings when im not (incase dad uses it) and wondered how much hp those usually give.. any other ideas would be good
thanks ahead atime,
Wes

You will need to give your specs--v-6 or v-8, auto or manual.:?:

You think your dad is gunna know if you re-tuned the computer?Does he check it on a daily basis or something.:tongue

PS IF you just put some minor mods on, it would still be a drivers race between you and another stang(especially if you're both manual).

One of the magazines this month did a filter/cold air comparison (either MMFF or 5.0 - I get so many) I think they said around 5hp for the K&N filter alone. I'll have to check when I get home.
