    I just got 4000 dollars out of a settlement out of a insurance settlement , so what would most of us on this site who are 21 single bachealors with no resbonsibilitys do with it, dump into our cars. I was gonna go turbo , but it would eat just about all of it , and i wanna do other things , so here is what i ordered.

    Zex street/strip cams
    Portflow springs and retainers
    Aebs Intake manifold
    Arias 81 MM std bore pistons 10:5:1 compression
    Zex Nitrous kit
    Zex remot bottle opener
    Zex inline fuel pump and plugs

    I think that will make for a awesome nitrous setup, and its a lil over 2 grand. Im runnin 14.4 now as it sits , with the new setup off nitro i think ill be in the high 13 second range now, once i arm it , with a 75 shot , 12"s easy, and the block should be able to handle it easy with those pistons, i might just only run a 55 shot im not sure. Heres some other things im ordering ,
    Leather Racing seats
    Picked up two GSR sawblades for the back
    OBX blue valve cover
    White Ripped style graphics for the sides.

    Im done moddin it now , only thing ill order later on is a lightweight flywheel , im just gonna drive it , i also have been thinkin of some forged rods down the road possibly. Outside of that cant wait to get everything in , im stoked about my new setup.

    so if he puts on 25 stikers he's got 125hp :lol:

    Loose the remote bottle opener it's a waste of money. Get a bottle warmer and purge... oh yea minimum 18 hp for the white ripped vinyl...:)

    Hell, you can buy a premade turbo set up that will be less than $3000, or a SC, or a GSR long block.

    I was going to say dump it into a better lookin girlfriend but....
    anyways, if you already ordered the pistons you might as well have ordered the connecting rods, and if you can afford it you should get a port and polish job or maybe a stroker kit....... then you'd be really bad ass. oh and dont forget a throttle body to put that intake manifold to some use.
