    full bolt ons, dyno queen(bigger)cam/head package, nitrous, and proper tune all of 3500-4000 if all parts are new. that is for just strictly power. you will need to spend alot to hold up to that power as far as the rear end, and thats not even any suspension to get the power to the ground if you actually want to use the 500hp.

    you know if its 500hp at the wheels your pushing over 550hp at the crank.. If you dont have a bullet proof bottom end you will have a pile of twisted bunt things that used to look like a engine .. not to mention your gears and such in the rear end and tranny ...

    I dont think trying to reach 500hp the "cheapest" way is the right approach to this.

    Hey guys sorry for the confusion. I am talking about a sustainable car. Front to back. Including how much work needs to be done to be rearend, not just the engine itself.

    well as far as everything but motor,

    you'll need wither a 9inch or a moser 12 bolt

    285+ width tires

    subframe conectors

    and maybe an upgraded torque arm

    Thank you for the compliment. The only real mods I have are an SLP lid with K&N filter, TT II's with 275's up front and 315's in the rear, SFC's and a catback with turn downs. The next thing I am really looking at before the end of the year is headers and dual electric cutouts.

    You can subscribe to a thread without posting in it.


    Since you are wanting cheap HP, just throw nitrous on it.

    You must have never rode in a car with a healthy hit of nitrous. It obvious when it hits, you own it.

    OP, You asked for the quickest and cheapest way to 500 RWHP. There is no other option for that question besides nitrous. Cheap, reliable, safe, big power.
