There is no way you will make 400hp with two grand.

With those bolt on's and a tune the most your looking at is a little over 300 whp. BTW headers don't really do anything. good luck though.

well i mean the way i looked at is:
headers 10-15 hp
intake 15hp
headers 20hp
chip 50-70hp
which comes out to over 100 hp. definitely can be done. but my point is i dont wanna pay more than i have to. cuz most ppl in this forum seem to pay way more than they have to just cuz ppl prefer them. im just looking for the right places with the right prices

you said headers twice. However, I think you are right and it can be done.

I promise for 2K you CANNOT get >400 whp. But have a great time trying

You obviously have a bit to learn. You can't just add up the HP like that. Plus those numbers are fairly exaggerated. Like I said, it can't be done for that price. But have fun trying
