    Three words for you...

    Edelbrock Turbo Kit


    It'll let you sell your dc header and you won't need a S2 Intake manifold... but you'll get a big ass gain...when it comes out..


    Anyway, with those mods you gained... 5 maybe 10 hp?

    First you should decide if you wanna go turbo or na. Either way some new cams should help you out. If you really want more power besides a turbo kit you won't get much from bolt on parts. To make some real power you gotta do some internal work. The thing that will be most benifical is tuning. Whatever your next part is rather it be a turbo, cams, pistons, or any other part it would be best to get to a dyno and make sure your engin is properly tuned to get the most out of your engin.

    It would have been nice to know that... in that case stage 2 cams, gears, 12:1 compression pistons, lighter flywheel, grippier clutch, 12 lb rims, Falken azenies... the list could go on.

    If you are going to use a stage 2 or higher cam you will definitely want to do the valve train i.e. valve springs, retainers just to be on the safe side. Spend $200 now on the valve springs and retainers and it will save you a lot of money in the long run.

    :withstupid: the cams alone are 905 before taxes... the valve springs, retainers, etc are all extra.

    skunk2.com <-- Search around.

    You just said your girl doesn't want a turbo, and now you want to add one? make up your mind.

    higher compression will be harder to tune a turbo on. but it can be done...probably need race gas though.

    You need to make up your mind first, don't build the motor with high CR pistons if you want to turbo later. It's easier to tune a motor with a 9.0:1 CR with a turbo.

    if you want a fast car then save your money now. Dont buy any bolt on parts that are gonna give u shit for power. Take rev 8s advice and save up for a decent turbo kit.

    modify your rod and add some PCT slugs, skunk2 stage 2 cams and valves springs, AEBS intake manifold, and a pair of good headers will be good. throw a fuel rail, bigger throttle body, and ECU upgrade and you´ll be satisfy.
