    Mechanical HP Gains

    I have a 2000 TA, automatic. Dont know a whole lot about what all I can do to get mechanical HP gains or if that is even the right verbiage. I put on a Precision Torque converter and realized the gains immediately. I did a little research and it looked like there are some parts/add ons that do not need to go through a tuning process in order to see the HP Gains. Again I dont know a whole lot about this area but I am wondering what else I can buy to put on the car where I will see the HP gains immediately. So far I have put on a new MAF, Smooth Bellows, SLP Loudmouth Exhaust, and the torque converter. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The standard mods are to get an aftermarket exhaust and a cold air lid. That should add some gains for you without the need for a tune. You can do headers too, if you have the cash and time (also no tune required.)
