Default daily drive car

Im going to buy a car. I also dotn wantto put tons of money into making it fast wiht ever little part you can add. Seeing as gas is getting higher. What could i do that would make the gas miliage dramatically go down. What kind of car would be agood daily drive if you just did a few things to add speed. Like adding a turbo intake etc? And what would be better. Turbo and boost it. or super charging?

first of all if you do not want to put alot of money into a car. turboing or supercharging it is out of the question. and why would you want to lower gas mileage?

i ment not make it dramatically go down sorry for typo. Would a turbo or supercharging be a easy way to add quit a bit of speed?

no it would not be easy. For you, you would probably have to hire someone to put it in for you. But it would make your car very fast . and also lots of the simple bolt on mods I/H/E etc make you get better gas mileage.

I=intake(cold air intake) H=headers E=Exhaust. simple cheap bolt on parts

Edit:and turbo-ing a car is still very expensive and hard. you cannot do it in a day. it would take about a month. look up all the parts needed for a turbo and you will understand. But if you want to have at it

yeah it would. you would have the fastest car in your school if you had about 300 hp. you would be almost as or just as fast as a lamborghini murcielago. just make sure if you did it you took your time and did it right. also do alot of research on it. it is a complicated thing. go to Honda-tech.com they have tons of info you can learn. thats how i learned everything i know. but dont ask dum questions. people get mad. there is a red search button you can use. also there is a faq section. you can learn tons of stuff.
