Default 1993, 2.0L, I4. All stock - looking for HP

I have a completely stock 1993 probe. it's the 2.0L with an I4. I've got a tight budget, and I'm looking for the cheapest way to get a couple extra horses out of it. I'm not very mechanically inclined, so please try and keep it as simple as possible.

Well the first thing I did on my 93' SE was a cold air intake. Then from there a full performance exhaust.

e-bay, or an auto store. Cold air is a little difficult, just due to space constraints especially if it is an ATX. you can however slap a cone filter directly onto the MAF (with an adapter to fit the sensors) and have a fair increase.

I got diagrams if you need one check em out. Ask me as well and I might have others. If you have some that I don't, feel free to shoot em at me so I can add them.

Yeah i got mine from ebay but cuz mine is auto trans unfortunately i had to mod it cuz wasnt enough space to put the filter down lower. I got my exhaust from ebay as well. Pacestetter catback 2.25". I heard for the I4 we shouldn't go over 2.25" for the muffler outlet cuz anything else is too big. It sounds nice too. Not ricy or anything and no interior drowning. Its less expensive then other top xhausts but it wrks gud. I got my headers and down pipe from ebay too. I look at it know and the stuff is cheaper know then when i brought it lol

I can't really fine anything on Ebay. If it says "KL-ZE V6 2.5L ENGINE" I'm guessing it's not a good idea to put in my car? (or it won't fit?)

The 2.5L V6 is what comes in the GTs nothing will fit on a 2.0L from a 2.5L and vise versa.
