Jackson racing cold air intake should get you some horsepower for your effort.

You might also want to look up the timing mod.....

but best advice so far is to get a megasquirt and learn how to use it, tune it. Then you will be in a position to go further....

You guys are freakin funny. The responses are hilarious, but I'm glad it wasn't me "lookin for some EXTRA power". I don't think I'll ever ask a question until I know so much I don't need to ask it.

Step1: Sell your '93 Miata
Step2: Add your $2000 budget to the money you got from selling your Miata.
Step3: Buy a '93 300zx N/A
Step4: Go bug the zdriver forum

Best guess puts the total slightly above the 2,000 mark as you cheap out on the wrong part and you can throw your money away.

Used FM or BEGI cast log manifold and downpipe - 2-300?
Used GT2560 or 2552 - $3-700
CXRacing intercooler - 150 bucks, tops
Used MS:PNP - 600? Probably less off a part out thread.
Used injectors, rc500's should suffice - 200?
Various hoses and o2/knock sensor - 500, less if you do it right.

Total: 2500, give or take.

Theoretically you could do this for under 2,000 without much trouble. Assuming you can keep the torque down to spare the bottom end it shouldn't blow up, either. There's plenty of part-out threads on here, shouldn't be too hard to get this even lower. Avoid chinese turbos if you want to avoid (very real) possible headaches.

Used begi/fm manifold and downpipe go for 200-300 each, not together.
