There are many ways to add Horsepower to your vehicle. It all depends on if you want a NA (Naturally Aspirated) motor or a modified engine. A person can add a Procharger or Turbo. Prochargers use a belt to spin the turbo to give the motor more air combustion. While the Turbo uses the exhaust gases to push the compressor wheel inside the turbo making it spin up to 50,000 RPM which allows it to gain more horsepower. Depending on what you want will determine what type of engine you choose.
