True, FlyinHighImport - It sure is a broad question. People definitely need to know more to respond.FlyinHighImport on Sep/15/02 said:that is one of the most vast questions i have ever heard...give us some more input on what your plans on are in the future, your goals, times, etc.
btw: the first thing anyone usually does is cold air intake.
try using the search and reading the articles for more in-depth discussion on this. however, i'll give you something quick and dirty.Savy on Sep/15/02 said:2000 gs here.... is there a major performance diff betwee CAI and short ram intake??
Yeah- What he said. dragon you beat me to the punch!dragontegz on Sep/15/02 said:again, i can't stress enough that you do some research on your own. i'm sure you'll be able to find tons of useful information on this site alone not the mention the whole internet. have fun.
yes and no. cai's have the hump. everywhere else, a short ram will work just as well. if you start revving higher than 8 grand, a short ram will outperform a cai because of cai's long piping. basically, if you want big gobs of air, go with the short ram. (as in a SC application or NA application when it's screaming) for midrange power, go with a cai so you can take advantage of the hump.snvin on Sep/15/02 said:Savy-
I don't know any horsepower numbers (maybe somebody else does...), but cold air intakes usually perform a little better than short ram intakes because the air they bring in is colder and denser. [The exception is supercharged engines, where the short ram intakes work better like I said.]
There are pros and cons to each- for instance, cold air intakes perform better but are usually more expensive, and they also come with risks such as letting water into the engine (uncommon but deadly).
Most bang is definately gonna be a FI system, either turbo or supercharger. For the buck... probably that, too. However, it depends on how long you wanna wait around with a stock car. I'm getting a '98 GS-R, too, and though I was going to just wait it out and do the JRSC first, I think that I'm gonna get some good tires (and 16" wheels to match) first--after all, they are the only four parts of the car connected to the road.1998integraGSR on Sep/14/02 said:Just got a 98 GSR and want to know what are the first things I should do... best bang for the buck... supercharger? exhaust?
