To run 9's, it's gonna take 550rwhp at least. Probably more like 600 with how much your car weighs. So, don't only think about horsepower. Think of everyway you can drop your weight, like pinning your hood and removing all of the stock brackets, removing the a/c, taking carpet out to swiss cheese the unibody and remove unnecessary brackets (cover swiss cheesed areas with aluminum sheet metal before reinstalling carpet), replace your stock K-member and control arms with AJE racing parts, purchase lightweight racing wheels (HRE are the lightest). Do these things and you will drop 300-400 pounds off of your car. But more importantly most of the weight will come off of the front end which is exactly where you dont want it!
