How to get more HP out of the 2.2L

I'm new here and was wondering what the cheapest but most effective ways are to get more power out of the 2.2L

I have a 2002 S-10 with the 5-speed tranny

basics first...intake, exhaust, throttle body depending on your year, plug wires, chip, more. the only downside is all of those mods will get you something like 7hp at the wheels and thats it...ask stippy he'll tell you

In the market?

intake, exhaust, chip, efan
thats what id go with out of the box and for cheap, might get you near 10 hp on a good day

but for cheap big gains you cant beat a 50 shot of nitrous

98.8 hp and 120lb/ft

At least $500 for something that's worth the money. Of course you're gonna start that whole dry/wet system debate, but either way, about 500 will get you started. If you look at any investment in increasing your performance as HP per $ spent, NOS is one of the best returns on the money.

Look below at my mods list...my truck will toast my brother's stock 2.2 (not so much off the line but it pulls on his pretty well)...on top of that, get an electric fan, and underdrive pulleys. You should have a fairly noticeable power increase after that. If you want to run nos, don't go off and get a 100 shot... you'll blow up your engine. in order to run a large amount of nos(more than a 50 shot) you should get some pistons and con rods from mantapart...that'll run you around 1300, or about 1800 for a 2.4l stroker kit. but that is getting into the big bucks.

2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 5spd tiptronic auto, fully loaded, leather, stock. 1st 1/4 mile run: 14.8 @ 94 with full tank of gas and lots of crap in the trunk

2006 Nissan Frontier king cab 4.0 V6 M6 dark metallic gray. JBA cat-back exhaust (including y-pipe) with spin tech pro street muffler... For sale $18,000
Best stock run: 15.23 @ 90 mph

Black 97 SS Stepside 4.3 GONE!!!!! best timeslip: 15.4 @ 87.8

I would say out of my normal trip to work it's on 3/4 of the time and my trip is roughly 3/4 highway no A/C. It sounds like a V-8 at the stop light.

Your clutch may have siezed up partially if it runs that much. Good opportunity to go electric. You won't regret doing an e-fan conversion.

It shouldn't have siezed up this soon in it's life. It's a 2002. But I would love to go electric by next summer.
