ok ive done all the main basic mods to get power but i still want more,iv thaught about nos but i want to know everything that i'll be faced with in the installation and running but cant find the info,id really love to turbo but dont have the money for aftermarket engine management,bigger injectors ect if i could just bolt a turbo up and run low boost with gains id be happy to spend the money on that!with the nos idea ive been told to run pressure reg that only comes on with nos..i dont know how to do that or even how it would work any ideas where i can find this info like does someone have the fitting instructions for a nos kit they could e mail me?

would be a waste of money and time with nos.
what mods have u done, there are so many to do. eg eprom, cold air intake, extractors, fuel system, cam, porting and the list goes on.
if u wont big power well forced induction is the best way

You can't have all that air and oxygen and NO or very little fuel to burn..You need to add more fuel to engine first..Or it will burn pistons etc...Think how a blow torch works..Hot metal and oxygen = gas axe...Plus some detonation = good by engine and long walk home..Been there done that!!!!

They would have to be wide band in that case...
The std type don't have the flexability or range....

ive done whats in my signature,all the main power mods!what should i upgrade in the fuel system?a bigger pump isnt gonna help coz the standard pressure reg will adjust to suit standard,unless i upgraded engine management but thats hard isnt it?and expensive?bigger injectors...no good with standard ecu and pressure reg

If n/a isn't doing it for you, go turbo/supercharged.

if you can aford a super charger or turbo setup go for it.

if not and you want to keep it NA you basicly have to take what you have and go further.

IE bigger cam and spring to go with it.
take the head off and have it ported.

multi throttle intake.

but then you would need an aftermarket ECU to run it.
