Vehicles are made from the manufacturer that aims for a middle of the road affect ie economy, reliability and performance . Changing on will affect the other 2. Having the CPU processor re programmed to give more power at different rev's will improve performance . So you can have more power off the mark but suffer a bit at top speed but the economy will suffer . You can have it set so that it goes faster but the take off will be a bit slower . Basically what I am saying is that to alter the car's current performance is going to cost you dollars . Even checking for dragging brakes, blocked cat converter even fitting narrower tyres will all affect performance but it still costs. So what you have to work out is how to get maximum bump for minimum cost. IF you do not have a turbo then that fitment will be probably the most cost effective add on that you can get. Have it fitted properly and have the correct chip fitted and adjusted on a chassis dyno will give you some where around 30% plus in performance . The best advice I can give is a lot of home work. Read car articles , talk to speed shops , find out what your peers have done and the cost ,look at other cars ( not just the pretty paint scheme but the overall performance ). A very carefully planned goal will get you the best for the least

How do i fix a 2011 honda 2o hp 4 stroke running rough and stalling

Hey Maureen, I am guessing this is an outboard motor??... either way.. sounds like its time for a "tune-up"... the carb(s) needs a professional cleaning and setting... new spark plug(s)..this should perk it up nicely!!

Not a problem just a question...

The cheapest would be a cold air kit (probably less than $200.00). It is easy to install, but won't quite get you there. The next is a better exhaust system (probably under $200.00). The other easiest modification is a performance chip or engine tuner, but they can be upwards of $300.00. A high performance coil, spark plugs & wires can help as well. The bad news is that each of these will make a minimal improvement by themself. Together they make a grand improvement. Everything is expensive.

2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab 1500 4x4 needs AC Improvment Can I upgrade the AC Compressor to get better preformance

Compressor change should have no effect, presuming it is working correctly. Have a qualified shop diagnose the system, there are tons of items involved, pressures, tempratures, heating system, etc. Remember that you are heating OUTSIDE air unless you are using recirculation setting...Hard to lower outside air to cool during the short time that the air is in the evaporator coils.

1991 S10 has old A/C and needs to be converted. Is there a cheap way to do this on my own? Anything special that I need to know?

If its R-12 they make a drop in HP-80 but i have only seen it in 30 pound cylinders. Can still get R-12 it just costs a lot. If you convert to 134a you need to flush and charge oil and refrigerant. if you need to add refrigerant it has a leak...... prob. o-rings on quick conects to condenser.

Improve towing

are you looking at improving fuel econ or power ?

fuel econ can be increased by 3-5 mpg by installing a torque converter lock up control gale banks makes a great one but there are others

short bursts of added power can be added by a propane injection system there's a bunch of mfg's of these just google it and you'll see

these are the lowest cost things i know of

of course for more money there are belt driven blower kits you can add
these add 20 to 100 hp and can cost 1200 to 4500 bucks depending on what kit you want

Ohh and another way low cost way to increase both MPG and Power is to increase your exaust pipe size to 4 inches Plus++++ but be carefull
ck your local laws about mod pipes on trucks there not legal everywhere
