Default Think i'd be close to 240 hp with this setup?

I was wondering if I'd be around 240 hp with this setup on my L36

Chip
1.9 roller rockers
K+N induction
T-stat 180
High Flow cat

Think that would add 35 hp what else can I do I just want the most hp for the least amount of $$$$

At the crank, probably not. The cheapest thing that will get you that much power is a GT1 cam.

At best you might get ~220hp at the crank, or ~180 at the wheels. A cam and some ported heads could get you closer to the 240 mark.

How much would you guess your car is putting out hp wise? I'm planning on doing all the mods you have.

180 would be a safe guess, plus or minus a few.

180 wheel? thats it? I would think thats what an L36 would make at the wheel stock.

Nope. IIRC a stock L36 only makes 160ish HP. (20% drivetrain loss)
