    Question Performance assistance please.

    I'm sure everybody is tired of threads like this so b4 i make u read a story, JUST KNOW I'M ASKING THE TYPICAL "WHAT DO I BUY TO GO FASTER QUESTION." If your still reading, thank you. My car is a 98 Z28, 120,000 miles on it. Stuff already done to it includes; K&N filter, lid, slp smooth bellow, slp MAF sensor, magnaflow muffler, brand new tranny w/ shift kit. All those things are nice but I'm still looking for more power. The car is old and I don't want something that will tear the engine apart. I was thinking of either pacesetter headers or a magnaflow cat-back. But any other ideas or general opinions would be very appreciated.

    +1 on the Pacesetter's. I run them with an ORY and I love them. Unless you have some big money to spend on something like Kooks, Pacesetter's is the best.

    If you are going for longevity... get stainless headers.

    I dont think they will, you will have to buy a y pipe or off road y pipe to go with it

    Agreed...

    I think what he was going for was rebuilding an engine stronger after blowing one up to handle the n2o?
