Yeah and you will find out you cant have both words in the same sentence (quick and cheap) as you will need a layer of other devices to support the power add ons.

To start= Intake, exhaust, computer upgrade, which already isn't cheap.

modified airbox, 3" turboback, and an aftermarket wastegate actuator. I have these mods with a little weight reduction (my car weighs 3100 without me in it) and I trapped 97 in the quarter. this trap was without the wga and weight reduction though. I should be very close to 100 this season. I have the agp wga (got it for free)

and those people that say the ptb is bad...it's not bad. just stop driving it like you stole it....which is probably why people are getting shitty gas mileage. I'm getting about 24 city 26 highway and i drive normally. I didn't change my habits at all when i put my wga on. I've yet to get a tip code also.
