    What to do to my car over storage?

    Alright, so I have had this car maybe 2 months now and I love it. Winter is here and my car is in my garage, sitting nice and toasty. I haven't modded any car before this one. Just trying to see if I am leaving any extra HP on the table and what else I might be able to get for a reasonable price. The mods are in my sig. I heard maybe porting the TB but I havent done that before and don't really know what that means or will do to my car. I am thinking about heads and a fast90, but that will have to wait since they are pretty expensive. Anything else that I can do or have done that will give me a little more power? I'm still new to these engines and don't know too much about them. Any help woul be appreciated. Thanks.

    Also, since I bought the car modified, how would I be able to tell if the TB has been ported and polished already?

    First of all your car is set up very nicely as it is, you should be proud of what you have. Now, I want to steer you away from the F.A.S.T. 90/90 because your car already has the excellent LS6 intake and your throttle body may already be ported (loosen the clamp around your throttle body and pull the bellows away and look at it, you should be able to tell fairly easily if any abrasions or polishing is there).

    The FAST 90/90 is very expensive for what it is and I don't think it would be worth the cost to horses ratio, especially if you can do a home porting job on your TB and MAF or find someone you trust who can do it. Oh yeah, don't bother pulling the screen from your MAF, the subject has been talked to death and the screen does not inhibit airflow to risk damaging the sensor near it.

    My recommendation would be to get some Prothane motor and tranny mounts, MSD ignition wires, NGK TR55 plugs, maybe some more aggressive gears?

    +1 nice mods, car probably sounds sick as fuck,

    i say some gears maybe 3.73's or 4.10's i have the 4.10's and love them,

    imo the msd wires are worthless i would spend the money and get the grannatellis

    Ok, sounds good. I wa hoping for some feedback on fast 90/90 because I know it's spendy and probably wouldnt net me much more for the cost. The car does sound pretty sick and I am hoping to get a lot of videos of it when the weather permits.
