    i head different opinions on both tb (some people go 65 mm) and bellmouth.

    but aside from them, yeah rockers, extractors, a tune are all good steps.

    The throttle body he's talking about is a 70mm throttle body they can be picked up from lots of places for only a couple hundred.

    Yeah it's the bellmouth, i'm not sure if it actualy makes more power but definatly improves throttle response.

    dont bother with a throttle body any bigger than the 65mm v8 tb

    If you have enough money I would go extractors first. My car responded nicely when I got extractors. Diff gears are also good, but 4:11 might be a little high....ul be revving pretty high on the highway. Maybe 3:7ers. My car has a 3:08 LSD and I dont really like it. It is probably shagged though. I find it harder to control in the wet than an open wheeler.(my car is the only car i have driven with an LSD though) I reckon a bigger throttle body on a V6 is a waste of money.

    14's hey, gunna need some work to get to that. i dont know of any un-opened n/a V6's that do 14's....so you'd need more than just the usual bolt-ons.
    either look into some sort of forced induction, plenty of options there, or failing that you'd need the heads ported and a decent cam to start getting 14 sec passes.

    thats a lot more of "go harder" for 14s 1/4 mile. then definitly the diff and LSD, stay away from a mini spool unless it's a dedicated drag car and it's illegal on the road anyways. port 'n' polish the heads, port match the intake manifold. good headers, cam etc or forced induction like sircruisealot said. not that simple speed=$$$ and then you gotta make sure you can stop it to as the standard brakes are pretty poor really

    for alot more performance try for a tb around 68 ml (not sure exactly if you can get it this size), and a set of 2.5 extractors and system. 1000 bucks for a decent set and tb.
