    i am trying to add horspeower without dumping money into new parts. I was told to shave my heads and raise the intake up... but only by a few thousandths of an inch. Would that work??? And if it would how much horsepower would I get??? I was also told to remove the air conditioning... That i know would make scence. But how much would i get and would it be worth it???

    cold air intake is a good way to get a smidgeon more power and gas milage, although im not helping you out by giving you a "cut corners" method (lack of better term, not intended to sound mean) and im sure if you poke around on ebay you could find one for real cheap. oh, also maybe consider going to meijer or a murrays(if they exist in ohio) and get a thrush or cherrybomb muffler, they either increase or decrease back pressure (i cant remember which) but whatever it does it also gives you a smallll amount of added power, i got a cherry bomb, and i did actually happen to notice a tiny bit more pep in my accelleration, and cherry bomb mufflers run around 18 ish dollars or atleast thats what mine cost, anyway im just rambling now, because im really exausted, hope i may have helped you in some way... or not, lol, either way, i did my best, lol

    I know somewhere i saw where someone made a phenolic spacer for the intake manifold(s)for a 3x00V6. Im not sure where I saw it (maybe 60degreev6.com) but Id imagine it works similar to a throttle body spacer, and since its phenolic it reduces heat on the manifold. But like the last guy.. i may just be rambling.

    shaving the heads will increase power because itll raise the compression..how much i dunno..but having it shaved to much will destroy the valves anyway..as far as the intake spacing..i have no idea..
