Cool Best bang for your buck aftermarket supra parts

I recently bought a 1987 supra. And i was looking to add some upgrades to make some more power. what would you guys reccomend for the aftermarket parts that will give you alot of power for not alot of money. Basically I wanna know what to put on to get more power except for a turbo because i dont got the money now. soif you could give me some of the best aftermarket parts for a 87 non turbo supra thatd be great.

If u got a NA dont expect alot of power. Intake, exhaust and tune-up will maybe give u 10-25hp more. Oh and hi-octane. he-he. Fun.

I'd suggest looking into replacing the headgasket before anything else, and any maintenance issues should be taken care of before looking for more power.

Default Horsepower

Ya ill probably have to just start out with some of those things that you guys suggested but like i said right now im broke. mostly because of the fact that i just spent all my money on that car and because im only 16.

you don't have to replace the headgasket unless your going to go for major horsepower or if your car has a lot of miles on it

i have a N/A and i have a K&N cold air kit, 2 1/2" catback exhaust. i also blocked off the EGR valve and i loosened the tension of the spring in the AFM.

this next month i'm getting a header, dual electric fan, cam gears, timing belt, and a chip

this will be pretty much close to max power without tearing into the engine

get some basic performance upgrades...intake, header, exhaust system... make sure ur head gasket is ok...for quick power...you might want to look into nitrous...though i dont use it because i dont believe in temporary power haha
