Arrow What is the cheapest, fastest way to gain BIG HP?

I want to know what kind of upgrades can I do without changing the turbo to get maximum output of my 7MGTE? As of this moment, I have a K & N Air Filter, HKS Blow off valve, Megan Downpipe and Trust exhaust. Turbo is currently set at 8PSi. What else could I do to make it run more powerful and yet safe? Thanks!


PS. Thanks to those who contributed to my other help thread. It was the TPS and the screws were loose. Thankyou!

the next best thing you could do would be to upgrade your intercooler and get some intercooler hardpipes
it will make a big difference

Get a metal headgasket, it'll give you 50hp. Oh wait, I mean it'll give you piece of mind. IMO there is no such thing as safe hp with the stock headgasket from the factory.

Oops, forgot that I already have the 1.2mm HKS metal headgasket along with ARP studs. What kind of intercooler should I get? I saw some cheap ones on ebay. They were selling for about $90 dollars or so. What should I do?

unplug your wastegate actuator

No dont really do that, It will fry your turbo. Unless you have a car that is in terrible shape like me and it boost to 8 psi with the WG unplugged.

NO IT'S NOT

don't unplug it, if you are unsure where or what an actuator is you shouldn't be fiddling with it
