    to actually make it quicker... Tune? ....uh.... You can bolt on all the normal goodies but it wont make big changes in like track times.
    How many miles do you have on it? and is it a daily driver?
    What rear gear? what trans?
    If the miles are low you could save up for a head and cam swap.

    Did you heat the drag radials? I'm sticking on 315 nittos with a t56 , 4000 launch. 435 hp 385 tq. you shouldn't be spinning I wouldn't think. You should be able to pull a 2.0 on street tires

    drag radials are good but if you don't heat them they won't stick. Well I will say they will stick way better. How much do you have to spend ?

    headers = 40rwhp


    or, buy a universal GM nitrous single fogger, and throw a 100 wetshot on it. put the nozzle right in the elbow.

    they are stepped stainless hears that come with a y-pipe shipped for $550

    I have em, and love em. dont waste you money on that pacesetter junk, atleast get the hooker coated headers if anything

    The LPP Y dose not have cats. to be honest it would be tough to get cat on that setup because it tucks up so tight to the under side of the car. The system uses slip on pipes. You would need to buy bolts, new gaskets, and get some good 3 inch single bolt strap clamps.

    Get your suspension done, makes a difference with the way your car hooks. I'm running 315 BFG DR's and even with close to 600 rwhp, I have no problem getting the car to hook even without heating up the tires.
