I dont want a really crazy cam but around 228/230 with a upper .500 inch lift and 112/114lsa, id also want an aluminum intake cuz i wanna run nitrous through it. For exhaust longtubes and an x pipe with mufflers. I want your opinion on how much this could cost me i have 3,000 i can spend.

    How fast do you want to go? These cars can outrun about 95% of anything out there, in stock trim.

    It would depend on your goals or purpose.

    The best first mods are suspension and handling.

    hp is is irrelevent with those clean up mods. it is just some regular maintainance that frees up a little bit of power that was lost with the 8 year old parts slowly being worn in time.

    idk about going big on the stall cuz up top they take away dont they, also i am going with the intake, cam, and exhaust. but i'll have to do some frame work and prolly suspension too. not really sure i wanna run the juice just yet me being a teenager and i get pulled over constantly for dumb shit that cops find wrong with my driving, if they'd see the tanks they would deffinately be on my ass for sure. Btw haha i raced a 96 mustang gt with intake and exhaust... killed him he blamed the cold for him not catching traction so we racced from a role going abt: 35 still smoked him prolly worse from a roll so he got pissed and just drove off and didnt wanna talk

    Stall would be a good thing gets you in your power quicker, if you intake cam and exhaust with a stall, with a proper set of tires and suspension, it will get you to your goal. Its just money it comes and goes, haha. ooo and for the spray bottle thats why you buy a gym bag and cut the bottom out of it problem solved,

    I have heard a aftermarket lid and a airfilter can gain 7-10hp. That was the first thing I did to my car. Lid,airfilter,smooth bellow. I lucked out I got it all for free.Then I did Throttle body bypass and MAF. I could tell a differance in them mods at the track. Good luck with your LS1 and modding the car.

    They either bolt or weld along the doors on the belly of the car. They stiffen up the frame of the car and improve handling and overall driveability.

    I have these in the boxed design.

    FIRST, very first thing -

    I noticed that my Z woke up after I started using premium unleaded gasoline.
    I bought the car used, and I think they was using the low octane stuff?

    92 octane makes my Z a tire smoking happy mother f'r
    Oh, and I use a bottle of injector cleaner everytime I change the oil.
    Probably going to switch to Royal Purple next oil change.

    Don't waste your moeny on royal purple. Pennzoil Platininum or Valvoline Synpower work better for less money. If you have the cash buy Amsoil. All three of these oils are better than royal purple. There is a huge thread on here about oil. Do some reading and you will see for your self.

    You can buy used I got on a local forum for fbodys and picked up a lid and k/n filter for $60.00 for the set. Check out craigslist ,just look for deals they are out there . Stuff like this is reuseable. you dont have to buy new just a thought.

    just buy and aftermarket one i always laugh when i hear people porting there throttle body think about it ur still letting the same amount of air in the blade doesnt get bigger, in fact all ur doing is going to have air bouncing back same concept as a dirtbike powernow blade there there to direct air in there. and go with the bigger mass air the 2 are worth it check my mods and dyno sheets i dotn have very much
