    First off how many miles are on it?....If alot, I would probably replace the springs, push-rods, and a few other things b4 I did either......however, If you have the $$ and believe me it takes $$ to be reliable and fast then, it depends on how much power you want? and what-ever you decide, before you do RESEARCH,RESEARCH, and do some more RESEARCH....also, read up on it in the forced induction section

    question is, what are your goals, REALISTICALLY SPEAKING of course, 450 is easily attainable through a H/C package, and 400 is easily attainable through just a simple cam swap and a retune, just let us know what your goals are, and dont be afraid to elaborate, it makes it easier for us to tell ya LOL

    well its got bout 75 thousand miles & I have babied it the 2 yrs i've owned it(whoever had it b4 me did not do the same). Tuned it up bout a yr ago -everyone said that it didnt need it, but it did cause it was misfiring but everyone else was tellin me it was other reasons but it was still havin the same problem & I was right, it just needed a tune . Its been oil changed every like 2. I dont speed around w/ a lead foot, but just knowin I can is awesome lol. What I want realisticly is somethin that I can still drive w/ out ruinin my tires everytime I turn the car on! lol I want somethin thats not gonna be super harsh on the motor when I just wanna take a drive. But I also want to know that I can kick some rocks when all the racers wanna play (I know, I know, its already a lil devil, but what can I say, I want more cuz this is the car I have always wanted, and I want to do what I can to make it even better, to show I appriciate this car! lol).
    I dunno what else to say except its an automatic, hence why I need a shift kit. Other than that I just need advice, and I know I need lots of research, since I am kinda rusty on my car facts. I haven't been able to set the car aside to do the work till now since I can now afford a second car. Price wise, I don't want Insane expensive lol I know the ~minimum~ is gonna be bout 6 grand? So i've prepared for that, but i'd just like some opinions and specs to get me started. Bein a girl and all its hard for me to just know what to do lol

    Well let me put it this way with Turob/SC like you said its going to be minimun and I stress minimum 6K. but a H/C + N20 will cost you about 3K for parts and you will be able to get atleast 575RWHP. (with the spray) both of these prices are without install.

    Welcome to the site.

    I would say Turbo. The para static draw for power loss is less and I think the power gain is better. The key is getting a quality kit that includes ALL parts needed and fitment and good. I'll try to find you some links tomorrow when I have more time where we have discussed this in vast detail.

    Can I ask why not just a quality nitrous kit?
    You'll gain WAY more power for less and have a faster car.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    since its an auto, i would build that tranny first, thats gonna be the first thing to go boom LOL, and if you want a damn good track car, dont worry so much on the motor, build up that tranny, and do some suspension, whats gonna be good with all that power if you cant put it to the ground effectively ?

    I have seen a lot of people had problems with the sts i think most of that was people installing them wrong,mine is custom made not sts ,had to work though diffrent problems doing my own setup,but trust me its worth it. nothin wrong with rear mounts,keeps under hood temps down,looks neat as hell under the hood,not to mention 10 second stock bottom end .

    what kind of turbos are you running? And where you have them set up?
