Hey im jp I own a chr n llokin to boost my power also may be looking to engin n trans swap all ideas are welcom even my wife says it's tooo slow what can we go ?
Facts man I jus have kids and the car already lol so make it better for me what automatic trans mission do you think will b compatibleWith time and money, anything is possible. Lol! No, serious though, there isn't much you can do to our cars to boost performance. The transmissions are a huge factor in that. Yes, you can add an intake and exhaust, but it's mostly for sound. You may pick up an extra 1-2 real world horsepower. Those claims on their websites are perfect world conditions and will not always get anywheres close to what they claim. I know, how dare they lie, right? Anyways, unless you swap out the transmission, you pretty much stuck with what you got. Now put a good 5 or 6 speed standard in it and then your options are unlimited! Turbos, engine porting, the works!
1) spend a little money, get you an intake and exhaust you like, make it sound a little better, be happy and just drive!
2) spend even more money, swap out transmission, get some boost, wonder what else is needed to keep it where you like it.
3) spend a lot of money and trade in car for something that doesn't have only 144 horsepower.
