running you about 1k if you do the work yourself. about 2k for someone else to do it
about 50-70hp depending if you get a tune or not.
i would highly recommend a tune.

Watch out for PI swaps, though. If you plan to put a power adder onto your car at any point, then the PI swap might not be the best option. The reason is it will make the compression ration too high to run any kind of high boost. If you don't plan on putting a super charger or a turbo charger on your car, then it is a great idea!

This was my biggest reason for not wanting to do PI swap, but found out a Cometic gasket can be used. They are head gskets that come in diff thicknesses, so the comp ratio can be ste at stock.Called several shops and they never had an issue with one blowing out with boost added.

got off track for a second, my suggestion is if you are not going to go all the way with the mods ie ported stg 2 heads , cams etc, then none are really worth it. Just keep it stock and do some comfort/cosmetic upgrades and enjoy the smooth ride and decent gas milage.

I wish I were like that, but I could never quit modding. The plans keep coming! Every time something blows my doors off I have to get a new part, lol.
