You can put some decent sounds into it for $1k. That was the first thing I did, and it was satisfying for a while.

You can also upgrade your sound system since the stock Bose is overrated.

Why in the world did you just put your number on the internet? Have you been taking tips from Anthony Giambri?

OP, save your cash. If you're really wanting to increase HP and TQ wait until you have enough for cheap nitrous system. It's cheaper then F.I. and will still give you a hell of a lot better feel than the Intake, exhaust, along with the other bolt ons will probably give you around 15-20 hp. IMO bolt ons for this car is a waste of money as far as real performance.

Don't waste your money on a CAI it SRI $200 for best case 5hp worst case -10hp. To get the best bang for your buck; kn drop-in filter, 5/16 spacer, ART pipes. After those you should have a bit of money left which you should put towards maintenance/repairs or save to put towards a nice exhaust or tune. Once you have those all done you are pretty much maxed out with bolt-ons and the only way to get more performance is through engine work or FI.

Koolsilver is spot on.

ART pipes are the number one item to add first. Then everything else.

And relax on the craigslist pranks fellas...the guy posted a phone number and made a simple mistake...no need to make his life difficult just because he made a different mistake than your own mistakes.

Still, for $1,000, I installed an AEM CAI, Kinetix High Flow Cats, Mizu Aluminum radiator, Mishimoto silicone hoses, and NGK Iridium IX spark plugs. You've got to figure that with that many miles, the it needs new spark plugs and radiator hoses anyway. You may as well get an upgrade.

Good call with the radiator hoses and spark plugs. People should be thinking about how they can get their Z to run like new again before jumping into crazy mods. Stuff like doing a fuel injector cleaning (not that stupid crap you pick up at the store but an actual shop running pressure through the injectors). A lot of people notice a difference with cars that have a lot of mileage when the injectors are properly cleaned.

Drop in K & N filter. Plenum spacer, either size since it doesn't add a helluva lot to begin with Test pipes if you don't have to pass emissions, quality hi-flow cats if you do. All of that will get you maybe 20 HP to the wheels, probably less though. Someone said UpRev tune - last I heard that is around 400-600 (?) and all it does is smooth out the torque curve - might get you another 5 HP to the wheels. You simply cannot get much gain with bolt-ons in the 350 - it was engineered pretty well in Japan. you are starting out with maybe 220-230 RWHP and all the bolt-ons in the world will not get you to 300. Old school formula was about $100 per pony if buying new.
