depends. what car do u own, is it turbo? or na. if turbo, then prob a reflash, or ecu upgrade is best bang for buck. or if u like it cheap and nasty, then just boost up the pressure, but things might go bang. also, intake, headers and exhaust r other good hp gainers for turbos. everything else has diminishing returns tho. na cars, such as 4 cylinders have less room to play with, but get marginal improvements with ecu upgrades v8 car get better response from mods

From a strict dollar/hp standpoint, I think nitrous wins. Then there is the problem of the cost of bottle refills, keeping the system running right. But, it's the only way I know to go from running 13's to 11's in a day, basically without tuning.

Not really, you can get performance cams designed to take maximum advantage of the other stock parts of the engine, or you can go with a full upgrade package that upgrades a whole bunch of stuff and includes a cam profiled for that specific engine spec

Educate me on Cold-Air intakes. Are they a good mod for HP?

Some intakes are good and some are crap and don't at all live up to the gains advertised. K&N just released an intake for the C6 Z06 and it is picking up 25+ hp which has been verified by owners. Nitrous is cheap and can offer great gains but if you don't have a good install or tune, it could get real expensive. Headers and tuning both seem to net solid gains.

1) Upgrade the nut behind the wheel 2) Top quality high performance tires The best vehicle hardware mod you can do is putting on some real serious tires. it's the only part of your car that touches the road and if the tires suck or are the cheapo $69.95 Wanli special then all the other mods you do will mean nothing if the tires cant keep the car planted. Also if you dont know how to "properly" operate the car then I dont care what you are driving it wont work right
