    2500 or less and u have the nitrous kit already. i would say exhaust, stall, gears, and a tune. that's a good daily driver combo. nitrous do not have to use all the time. stall, gears, and exhaust will make it fun to drive and sound good!

    How old are the plugs and wires? How much you have to spend? I'd get a tune, do you have a lid? Headers, and a y pipe would be a step in the right direction too!

    The car has 38k miles on it. Never driven in the rain, or ice.

    seriously, if you plan on modding, take it from us. You have a nitrous kit already and you have 2500 to spend. Get a lid, longtubes, an off road y pipe, and a cutout. I say cutout cus its cheaper than a catback and gets you the same gains. Install all of that and get a tune BEFORE you spray. You dont wanna blow your motor cus your a/f is off. If you dont wanna get a tune atleast get your a/f checked and make sure its ok to spray. Do the simple things like plugs and filters. You may have enough money for a stall in end, and if you do, go 3000 or higher.
    Drag radials are an option at any point. all of this is more than enough to have to worry about most srt-4s on the road. yes there are fast ones but most arent

    Lastly, like others have said, learn where your sweetspots are in the car.

    Insanity. I've never raced outside of a wide open, 6 lane highway, and a race-track. I'll be deleting that "highway" from here on out........

    The gameboy is simply the interface. The tuning device that uses the GBA is called a DTEC FC (Fuel controller). It's a piggy back tuning device and probably the best of the piggy backs. It datalogs and allows you to pull fuel and other parameters rather well. You can also upgrade it to be a boost controller.

    There's no way in hell a stock turbo will make much over 310whp. A MAXXED out stocker will make, on average, 290-310whp. Usually 290-300whp. The stocker becomes very inefficient over 22psi.

    However, with a proper tune and basic bolt-ons, it's very easy to bump an NSRT-4 up to the 260-270whp range with 300+wtq.

    Well the guy I was thinking of that did it had his ported.... so I guess that wouldn't be considered "stock"...

    However, there are plenty that break over the 300 mark...

    srtforums.com has a lot of them...

    Yeah, I've been on srtforums.com since 2002. Even a 'ported' stocker isn't going to put down 400whp. There are some 'big wheel' stockers, like the E1, E2, SST, etc. that are capable of 350-375whp perhaps and possibly 400whp with a wet shot, but nothing else.

    And as far as many stock turboed NSRT-4s breaking 300whp, it really isn't as common as everyone thinks. Many of the dynos are from people living in high elevation states/locations. They come over to CA and dyno at sea level and their numbers tend to drop quite a bit. We had a dyno day this last Saturday and a local hit 307whp with every bolt-on possible, fuel upgrades, tuning and just about everything ported. Without a wet shot on top of that, that's all he's going to be able to make with a stock turbo.

    As in rods/pistons? Or the actual block? The motor can take up to 400whp safely. Some have been running 500whp daily for a while, but that's a bit risky in my opinion. I always get this mixed up, but either the rods or pistons are the weak point at 400-500whp. The other is able to make more.

    Generally, when people go over 450-500whp, they're building out the bottom end.

    crank is supposdily good for 600 with forged rod bolts. I shit a rod at the 350ish whp mark (never had it on the dyno)

    I looked it up again and it's the pistons that are weaker. They give out between 400-500whp. A lot of it is in your tune, of course...and many people run with simple piggy back/map clamp setups that just aren't very reliable.

    I raced an SRT-4 Neon a few times, all from a stop.
    He got me off the line every time and had about 3/4 a car on me but I reeled him in in 3rd gear and walked on him from there on out every time. But my Ls1TA was an M6 so I guess the M6 / A4 makes a difference.
    My car was stock also, aside from the SLP exhaust
