With regards to NOS it isn't an ideal way to boost power your engine will be taking one hell of a pounding + 50hp of NOS will not make it 190 hp as the Nos will still ahve to mix in the combustion chamber with the air and fuel that has gone through all the so you will get on average 15 hp less. Cams are ok if you match them to a decent exhaust etc and it will affect the low down pull of the engine. There is no £500 mod to give more than 5-7 hp I am building a track Rocco and to get a 30 hp gain on that it is going to cost £1400 engine alone another 600 suspension, the list goes on. You will have to either buy a quicker car or even better spend £500 on a small light weight car just for you. Charade turbos good for 120bhp with small mods and no engine probs
