I would have to agree. I went with the Vulcans for the open engine bay and nice mileage but if I wanted more power I would have shopped for a tec.The best way to add power would be to sell the car and then get one with a Duratec engine. Probably under $500-$1000 depending on the deal you find and if you get lucky, maybe nothing.

I'm an old fart, and no fun either then... and you probably do not want to hear this ...but all considered then ... I would not try and modify it for power.breezeman120 said:Im 18 years old, the car was given to me by my great grandparents. It is currently 14 years old and has ONLY 46k miles. I need to keep the car for something reliable to go to college and back, as well as it being super low mileage. But I am a car freak. Ive upgraded the car fully aesthetically, but now want more power. So selling and buying another isnt really an option.
Agree, keep this car stock for a good daily driver and work towards a more fun car if that your desire.I'm an old fart, and no fun either then... and you probably do not want to hear this ...but all considered then ... I would not try and modify it for power.
Keep it all stock, and that will keep it reliable and very serviceable - while you need it to go back and forth to school.
Also - if you make modifications - and that causes emissions troubles or codes - you may have trouble trying to pass emissions and re registering it. [ ya ...headaches ]
If it's your daily driver - that you will need to rely on - then don't modify it too much / or at all ...
Also - if it is a gift ... and you have trouble with the car, that may get you in warm water with the giftee .
Drive her and keep her nice. Maintain her well.
