    whats next?

    hey F-body fans. I am just wanting to know what is next on my list. I just ordered the SLP flow-pac and was just wanting to know what would be the next way to go with performance. So if you guys could throw out some ideas that would be a big help. thanks

    Exhaust to make it breath then it depends if your A4 or M6 for either a stall or shifter. Shocks should be one of the firsts also. Then the SFC's after those.

    ^^^ i agree. Any of those will be great next mods. If you are M6 and you get a new shifter you will wonder how you ever lived without it. I love my pro 5.0

    catback and headers. Gotta make it sound good. Shifter easy to do just wait, but if you have an a4, wait for a cam then get a stall

    if you don't have full exhaust, i'd do a LSX or ls6 intake manifold, also a cam can give you a major boost with a good tune. if you got money to spend go with a super charger/ turbo...

    I would very much like to buy a cam. like i've said before im am kinda new at the V8 thing and i don't really know what kind of cam i want to buy. I don't want a strictly racing cam, i want somthing that will still keep it reliable enough to keep it as my daily driver, with good performance.

    your best bet then would probably be a 224/224 cam... 14 lsa will keep good driveability... but a 12lsa sounds like music... lopy!!!

    take your heads to a machine shop have them do a 3 angle valve job and pocket port them, do whatever else you want to do to them ei. springs rockers etc... then have them flowtest the heads after you know what your heads will actually flow call a cam company and have them make you a custom ground cam per what your heads will flow...then you are getting the optimized performance for what your parts will make..off the shelf cams and heads are not the best bang for the buck
