What type of mechanical ability do you have?

When someone says is X easy, to me... I say sure it is. But then, I've been there and done that. Therefore I usually ask, what'* your ability and what are you comfy doing normally to a car. If an oil change hasn't been mastered, then I would hold a few things back.

I would definatly say im not very confortbale doing alot to my car. I have really not done anything with my car before. However, a co-worker has suggested things such as cold air intake and a pulley swap and said they are simple and should easily be handled. I was just checking to get more imput and resaerch things before i mess up my engine horribly. This is a daily vehicle.

If you want some good punch, cheap and easy..

Consider ZZP'* Power Log, a pulley drop of say 3.5" and an FWI from Intense-Racing.

Those three should give you a nice bump w/o difficult installs.

You would need to rent or find a local person with the M90 specific puller though

Alright that sounds like a good plan. I also have a friend whos dad runs a tuning place. Would this be necessary with these mods added on? Also what would be the price range for these mods
