Most normal Hot Rodders pay closer attention to what really adds horsepower like buying mods that actually work together and have been proven by engines tested on a dyno etc. But the Ricers and the Mexican-modified cars throw that logic right out the window!

So here's my closest definitions to their thinking.



Ricers method of calculating horsepower gains :

Installed component Horsepower gained

Intake Tube with Filter 50hp
Adding a Mega-tip (kazoo) to an existing Muffler 25hp
Mega-tipped Muffler 50hp
Mega-tipped Chrome Muffler 75hp
Fiberglass Spoiler 50hp
Aluminum Shopping-Cart Spoiler 100hp
L.E.D. lights in the windshield washer nozzles 25hp
Racing stickers 50hp
Japanese Racing Stickers which you have no clue what it means 75hp
Racing stickers that cover nearly the entire window(s) 75hp
Racing stickers including a SUPER-STREET sticker 100hp
Shaving your stock recessed license plate holder then hanging your license plate at an angle by a cheesy bracket 25hp
Changing you dash lights to Blue 25hp
Installing a new speedometer to read the larger numbers in KPH instead of MPH to look faster 25hp
Lowering the car's suspension too low to clear speed bumps 50hp
Changing the stock front and rear clips 50hp
Changing the stock and rear clips and leaving them painted primer 100hp
Installing really fast turn signal flashers 200hp





Mexican-modified Car method of calculating horsepower gains :


Installed Component Horsepower gained

Fiberglass Spoiler 50hp
Aluminum Shopping Cart Spoiler 100hp
Making a late 80's Camero/Firebird Spoiler fit your 90's Hyundai 200hp
Racing Stickers 100hp
Super Street Stickers 200hp
Japanese Racing Stickers but who cares because you don't know what it or the English racing stickers mean 300hp
Car Make/Model stickers added to your car that don't match your car's Make/Model such as a Chevy 4X4 sticker on your Grand Prix 100hp
Car Model stickers such as Si, R/T, SS, TURBO, Type-R, etc that absolutely have nothing to do with your car 500hp
NIKE sticker on the rear window 100hp
NIKE sticker on the front window 100hp
Mis-Matched Hub Caps and/or Rims 150hp
Mega-tip added to your Muffler 100hp
Mega-tipped Muffler 200hp
Mega-tipped Chrome Muffler 300hp
Mega-tipped Muffler with the L.E.D. lights 500hp
