    Need expert advice!

    So I finally got to test drive a 2006 Z06. And I must say I am highly impressed! I have a bone stock WS6 and need advice on how to upgrade it. I want as much horsepower as I can get while at the same time keeping my car reliable. Im thinking around 420 RWHP.....Is that correct? I want no drugs and no turbo or superchargers. My budget is 5K-10K. (Including any other upgrades) Any suggestions since I am new to this??

    Lid $100
    FAST 90/90 $1200?
    Long tubes $500-900
    Catback/Duals $500-900
    Moser 12/9" w/ 4.11's or 3.73 $2000 give or take
    Heads- $1200

    All that given a good tune should give u 420+ to the wheels and send you into the 11's if u can drive.

    these dont include install. (im guessing)
    save yourself a ton of $$$, do the labor yourself with help of friends. pay them in beer/pizza during installs.
