    I know yall of tired of this but I got to

    Alright here is the low down hoe down, I am in Iraq I plan on spending about 5 grand on my t/a when I get back. All I wanna do is buy pretty much go fast parts, I already know I am gonna get me lont tubes a x pipe with some sort of high flow cat and some single outlet muffs. But should I got with buying heads intake and cam or a moser 9 in? And if I buy the heads and cam I want it to be around the stage 2 to 3 area ls6 most likely but I dont wanna go over the 450 range just yet. Any suggestions from you guys?

    Well I did my heads cam intake first and low and behold the next year blew up the 10 bolt. If you do the HCI package your on borrowed time with the rearend. Question is , if it blows up will you be able to afford to replace it when it goes? I would say do the rear end first with a gear and then do the HCI after. With the rearend you are going to have to have your driveshaft (yoke)sp... modified to fit the rear end and a new torque arm. Atleast I did with the moser I put in mine.

    Address the weakest points first and build the car to handle the HP. Meaning, upgrade the rearend before you increase the HP.

    sounds like a good idea on both ends, and no I found a website that has free shipping for a 9 in with whatever gear you want to go in it. And several other things such as a driveshaft with a lifetime warranty on it for an extra 4 to 500 i believe plus free shipping. The one I customized it was gonna cost me 3100 after everything was said an done and that was the cheapest I could find online. So I miswell go with that I was thinking a 3.75 gear since they didnt offer 3.73.

    And don't forget sub frame connectors. I kinked my quarter panels when the car was still in stock form.

    This will take you straight to the building page of what specs you want, remember its free shipping to. The one I built the final price was 3100 and it come with the axles, drive shaft(lifetime warranty), gearing, with 33 spline.

    Have you looked for used parts in your area or ebay. Sometimes people run our of cash and sell their crap for alot less. But guess if you want warranty its not the best bet.
    Once i get another TA its going to be used boltons or only buy heck of deals lol. Just a thought

    Lot of cars do it. The car twists under load, and you will get little "dents" right about the lower front corner of the back window.

    Yea I want the whole warranty deal lol, cause I would hate to buy something cheap but still that is gonna be costly to have to go back and change it back out again. If I am going to do it right I am gonna do it right the first time to make sure I cover my own ass if you know what I mean. Maybe headers I would buy that were used but not really expensive stuff such as a rear end. But I see where your coming from tho.
