    go with heads and cam,intake long tubes and good flowing exhaust and you should be close to 400 maybe more depends on heads and cam

    All the other planned mods you have are going to void your 2 year warranty just as fast as spraying it would.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Next mod should be exhaust. I gained 37rwhp and 34rwt over stock with just a CAI, 1 3/4 QTP headers + 3" custom ORY (!cats) and a 3" cutout in the I-pipe. It also lowered the ET at the track by .35 seconds.

    Your warrenty will be voided the second you do something to the engine. I have a warrenty for 90,000 miles or until Feb of '09 and about the only thing you can do without voiding your warrenty is a full exhaust. That's why I'm kind of hesitant to do anything because if anything goes wrong with the car like if the engine breaks down all I have to do is pay $200 and I'll get a brand spankin new one. But then I also want to mod it. I'm kind of at a crossroads.

    yeh same thing, i dont kno if headers will mess it up, but for now i just want the true duals after some pacesetter LTs and maybe a "MAF n Smooth bellows" and im done for a while...but yeh anyways question-is it bad for me to run my car with no pipe after the Y?

    before you do anything, please understand something. YOU WILL BREAK THINGS ONCE YOU START TO MODIFY YOUR CAR. no questions asked. things happen, unforeseen, unexpected. if you are worried about your warranty then do not do anything! and just to clarify, a shot of nitrous would be the least possible thing that would void your warranty. the system can be removed as easily as it was installed.

    on that note.....
    heads/cam package with all supporting suspension and drivetrain mods plus a tune should achieve your power goal.

    peice of advice.... take it one step at a time..obvisously your not rich if your saving up...nothing wrong with that...i aint rich either... but dont get to far ahead of yourself ...with mods comes problems..if you dont have the bank for it you could run into trouble....save,buy something,install, save...repeat

    or put a couple things on at once<---- save some money on install

    remeber... be prepared for things to go wrong...

    oh and...CAI, full headers back, cam, tune, ls6 manifold... you'll be well on your way
