    You might be able to find an affordable clutch and lightweight flywheel, if you can change them yourself. Or LCA's and relocating brackets like Raptor said.

    frost is good.. i know he is reputable so thats how i know with your tune should be higher... i say with the correct dyno you should be at a lil over 400-420 possibly higher...

    LT's, 3400 stall, FIPK,CB
    2002 Z28

    Hey, nice to see ya on here.

    I dyno'd at Turbo Tech, some stuff was done to my car since, but my #'s with magnaflow catback, k&N fipk, LT headers with high flow cats and ported throttle body by me, using a predator handheld tuner I hit right at 345 rwhp sae and simular tq. I want to invest in a wideband, so I can make corrections without using a dyno. #'s seem low, when my car was stock I dyno'd 284 rwhp(same dyno as above Turbo Tech), Installed the canned predator tune and adjusted A/F and was 307.1. Any questions, you know how to get ahold of me, I'm slow on motortopia, but I can pm you my # or email if you want.
