    Don't descreen the MAFS. BAD IDEA!

    Put a 150 shot of NOS on the car and call it a day.

    450- 500 hp at wheels or crank. 450 at wheels youll defenetly need better head with one of those cams. If you want decent idle youll need to stick with the cams that have 114 lsa wich also helps your Vacuum for your brakes, butt im with the other dude, spray that bad boy these things love getting juiced.

    Slow down, start with the basics and then see what you want to do from there as you read threads and gain knowledge. The first mods i did were sub frame connectors, a lid, lower control arms, exhaust and an underdrive pulley. Take care of that stuff first then think about the other stuff like headers/cam/heads/intake and do all those at once along with a tune and transmission stuff.
