That's what I was thinking but all the evo 8 heads I have found are $2000-$3000 just for the head not including putting it on. Could a cool air intake, header, exhaust, and different tune be enough for 25-30 hp increase

Nah. You might get 10hp if you're lucky. The head and cams are the major throttle point, not the stuff outside of the engine.

That price sounds bit steep for a head. You'll probably do better waiting for one to show up in a salvage yard near you.

If you're looking for a little more pep over the 2.4l, you'd be better off selling it and buying a GT or GTS. They have like 40 more hp and are only a little heavier.
