Nitrous
The bolt-on
An Edelbrock Perfomer GM EFI dry nitrous system set up for a 100hp shot. $570

The mule
The '01 Camaro SS, now with the ECM reprogrammed with a Granatelli Big G Flash Tuner. Power measured at the wheel.

Our take
What can we say? Nitrous is the bang- for-the-buck king of bolt-on power adders, and the torque gains here were spectacular. Also noteworthy is the fact that that Camaro made 22 more horsepower and 23 more lb-ft on the squeeze with the Big G program in place as opposed to the stock tune. CHP
