What kind of rims do you got? I hope its still not on stock 245's. If it is get some bigger rims with tires. Any suspension mods? SFC's?

Subframe connectors are a must. To be honest I would do the suspension upgrades first if I were you. The car has power already, so you need the suspension to keep up with the power. Also you can do the C5 Vette brake conversion to boost your braking power without spending 1k on a big brake system. Only works though if your rims are larger then 17". Another minor bolt on I would recommend is a larger throttle body. Is your car an auto, or a manual? If it is a manual does it have the skip shift eliminator kit on it? Another good upgrade that is cheap and very good is a transmission cooler. Hope these suggestions help.

the car does have subframe connectors, i have a trans cooler from my 66 nova drag car i just sold. lol and yeah it does have stock wheels and tires. and i was thinking about doing a fast 90/90 set up, but i have heard that wiends new manifold is actually putting close to and on some cars even better numbers than the fast. what do you think about that?

If the wheels and tires are 275's... that is plenty for performance. Some stickey tires on those rims would be fine. Hell, even a MT ET on a 16" rims will dead hook
As far as FIRST mods.... I would stray away from the FAST 90/92 intake and throttle bodies. They are a great intake.... but unless your highly modded.... do other things first. Cam/heads/suspension.370 CI - Twin 6766 Turbo - Jakes stage 5 4L80E - MWC 9" - Holley Dominator
