    You could put an LS tranny in your car and completely destroy its ability to accelerate...

    I have an LS tranny you can disassemble for the project if you want. The LS 5th gear will help out a good bit.

    Sorry to link to "THAT OTHER SITE" but this is a REALLY good write up on the procedure.
