    depending on the mods u already have is to what u can go for, a new full zorst will set ya bak about $1000, then u could whack on a CAI new plugs leads k&n mabe some high ratio rockers, mabe a small tune there goes ya grand. thats a good start i surpose. u can always jump straight into a cam and chip package which depending on the cam is the price or a really really small boost

    Up to you of course. But if i had that sort of cash lying around i would hit up a mild street cam, sports exhaust, high ratio roller rockers, and performance valve springs. $2000 wouldn't cover labour if you were to have someone put all of that in for you of course.

    first thing i'd be doing is a 3.45 or 3.7 ratio swap in the rear, if your 2Gs will cover it.

    Doesnt give you more kW, but multiplies the shit out of all that torque going to the wheels, which is what you want.

    I ran 16.3 @ 82.3 mph in my wagon at WSID with a cat-back 2.5 mandrel exhaust. Then went and bought HM headers $450, installed a nice smooth metal intake pipe (already had it, but $150ish usually) K&N cold air panel filter $80, super 6 intake snorkel $65, and was running a "straight through" Cat (shh, tell no one!) that cost me $50. This was all installed by me, so no labour costs.

    Initial "snap" off the line was no better, and with all this in place i ran 16.02 at 85.4mph. So, the gains were there for mid-top end power, but the stock 3.08 ratio was killing me off the line- 6oft times were still in the 2.3 range. I would have run easy mid 15s with a set of 3.7s

    For what its worth, i'd go the diff swap firstly, then some extractors and a redback 2.5 exhaust (minus the rear muffler of course), and then later on maybe some Yella Terra 1.8 ratio rockers (which apparently are really good for all over gains!)

    Do people read other members posts anymore? Specifically the one that pointed out that this thread is 4 years old?
