If you wanted performance and budget is no problem, why not just buy a performance car?

Turbo is costly mod and these engines fail to pieces all on their own. I would buy some of the highest speed rated low profile tires you can afford and light weight aluminum racing wheels. You will get more top end speed per dollar than any other mods and keep you engine in good shape.

200mph + rated racing tires but not slicks of course.

YOU CAN GET A HIGHER TOP SPEED BY TURNING OFF THE GENERAL MOTORS SPEED LIMITER IN THE ECM. THEN YOU CAN ACHIEVE MORE HORSEPOWER BY A COLD AIR INTAKE OR HI FLO AIR FILTER AND LARGER DIAMETER EXHAUST, MORE AIR IN MORE AIR OUT.

If u want power but not want to spend a lot I'd go for a supercharger I'm putting one in my 2006 chevy cobalt 2.2 ls guy I know is putting it in for 300 not cost for install but there cheap and they will give u maybe 60more hp depands on how much stuff u do to your car like exhaust dyno tuned maybe rebuild motor it all depends how much u want to do with it
