    Help me make up my mind!

    Here the decision I have to make, have small bonus comming!

    1. Zex Wet nitrous kit for $150 bucks (complete kit and not too bad a deal)
    2. Install new 3.73 gears in the rear end and a shift kit (im a A4)
    3. Install a bigger stall about 3600-3800.

    Im a 02 z with about 90K, injectors are a 96% now and dont know if I would get enough fuel for the nitro kit anyway, sure as hell dont want to run lean.
    -
    But would like everyone opinion and why.
    I eventually will do 2 and 3 for sure anyway. What is everyones opinion on brand of gears and what stall, thinking TCI's Super Street Fighter t/c?

    Of those choices, definitely the stall converter. In my opinion its just a waste to spend any money on the 10 bolt, even with an auto car. The chances of that 10 bolt breaking are high, and if it does break, you just wasted the money on those gears.

    A good converter will knock .2-.5 off your ETs and kill that dead spot the auto LS1s have. You will have a new found love for your car

    Whenever I had my tranny swap done over at Sunshine they kept my Vigilante converter to help offset the cost. It was a 2400 stall. Now that is not very big but you can tell a world of difference. I'm sure if you ask Mike about it he might cut you a good deal. Just a suggestion.
