Holset hx50...it'll make 600 horsepower for 2 seconds! Seriously, these engines aren't going to make too much beyond 250whp without major engine work. If this is your first car, I would focus on learning to drive it and just enjoy it. These cars are a ton of fun to whip around corners. That said, if you look back a few threads there is a budget supercharger kit in development that looks promising and will be pretty easy to install compared to doing a turbo setup.
