Buy a centrifugal supercharger kit for 3500
Buy a tune and a larger pulley for another couple hundred
There you go. 500hp (crank hp) reliably forever. Good luck making it hook up if you run out that 20k before you buy tires
Or, you could buy an 03-04 mustang cobra, have a 6 speed instead of that junk 5 speed, have a forged bottom end that can take 800+hp from the factory for 16k, buy a kenne bell, convert to E85, and have a 700WHP car that would be more reliable than that POS 2 valve any day. Not to mention, it's a goddamn cobra.
