i was thinking of gettin new leads or a cam next but im not sure yet. would new leads give a noticable diffrence? what sort should i get? how much are they roughly? how much is a decent cam?

hey new leads would do hardly n e thing for power but might make the car idle better. as for the cam its a lot of ****ing around, ur looking at around $1500+ and leads are around $60

leads are like a standard thing, you have basically done a simple stage 1 upgrade, normally I would leave it at this stage if I have high k's, cam work is ok.

My car was miss firing irregulary so i replaced my leads and plugs. Leads were eagle 8mm leads for $56 (without heat shields). I am looking to a cam myself for a future upgrade. I was quoted by COME racing $660 for the cam + $400 for the springs then you have to pay for install and dyno tune. I have been quoted more by crow cams and with theirs you need rockers and springs. Shop around you may be able to get a better deal. If you have someone nearby that does custom grinds you may want to look into that. Just remember experience in performance is worth money. *Also if you haven't replaced your plugs in a while do it you will notice the difference in comparison to old plugs

cant do anything to the suspension cas i live in the country an it bottoms out enough as it is
happy with the stereo just need new speakers in the front soon
got a deadly bodykit
forgot about a shift kit. that sounds like an good idea. any idea how much for a decent one they are
not gonna get an lsd. cost too much. an i dont see the point in spending the money just so i can do duelies.

Also another thing to consider sloted rotors and VT calipers at least for the front the VT calipers are almost twice the size of the vs'
