Talking 4.6l Northstar cadillac engine

What would be a relatively inexpensive way to increase horse power to this engine?

A cold-air system could be cheap if you did it yourself. Almost anything else I can think of is decent money (at least for me but I can't afford to play with a Northstar anyway).

Thanks for your response. What are some of your other ideas? Are there any kits on the market.What do Super Chargers run, Or Turbo chargers run. It seems like everything is very expensive. Not to mention getting some one who knows what they are doing. Don

Yeah, the Honda owners have "proven" that a louder exhaust ALWAYS results in a faster car...

By the way, you're responding to a thread from 2001.
