    I have a 2004 Element EX. I am getting a new engine and transmission, and also full exhaust (headers all the way back) and suspension. I’m trying to figure out if it would be more cost efficient to get another K24a4 or alike and get a turbo system, or if I should do an engine swap since I’m...
  2. Performance Upgrades

    Under The Hood / Performance
    Hey everybody, this is my first post, I own a 2003 Element AWD and have found that it has a lack of power under the hood, and was wondering if there are any options to increase HP such as forced induction that could be applied on a stock E without having too much power or to be uncontrollable or...
