cheap power and vr do not belong in the same sentence. basic bolt ons will give you a decent increase on the butt-dyno, though. chip, exhaust, etc. and yeah, head to vortex. but prepare for wolves.

wow, that is not safe at all. the intake should start in the front left of the bay and go around to the intake mani....you better have a good filter or you are going to hydro lock your engine. there are no cheap ways to make a VR fast. sorry. putting on an intake, header, exhaust, and a chip are the cheapest ways to add SOME hp....but they dont do much for a VR. just turbo it. trust me.
