Question about 1993 Dodge Shadow
There are as many ways to increase power and performance as there are funds available to spend. In essence it boils down to how much you money do you want to invest. Although due to the limitations of the vehicle in question there is a fundamental limit as to how much performance you can get out of it.
If however you accept the limitations in the steering, suspension, braking and over all horse power there are a couple things that are inexpensive that will give you a little more bang for your buck.
The most important item when considering an increase in performance is the volume of air and fuel that ends up in the cylinder. Any increase in these will give you an increase in usable power. The easiest upgrade is to increase the volume of air with a high flow air filter and ducting. The most common one is from K and N filter. After this an upgrade to the computer control in the form of a "Power Chip" can add as much as 50hp.
Beyond these the upgrade tend to get pricey. Fuel injectors, high volume fuel pump, exhaust header and upgraded ignition components.
You should also remember that it becomes more and more difficult to squeeze out horsepower the higher you go.
After this the only reasonable way to achieve a dramatic increase in power is with the addition of a turbo charger (if your shadow is not equipped with one already), or by adding a Nitrous Oxide System (NOS) to the intake.
This can also cause serious problems though if the engine is not strong enough to handle the increased horsepower.
Hope this helps.
