    I still have plenty to do as well.
    Port the FAST 90mm.
    Wideband O2.
    Have Harland Sharp rebuild the stock rockers.
    Six Speeds, Inc. built T56.
    Paint that FAST intake.
    Change fluids.
    Get new drag/street DR's. Yeah...tax return is getting two sets of rear tires.

    I am sure there is other stuff as well.

    How much of an improvement are you expecting with porting the TB?

    I need the wideband as well... so much left to buy

    Not the TB, the intake itself.

    From what Mamo said...20 RWHP across the board. Maybe a little more.

    Oh... interesting. Can the TB be ported as well? How much is that going to cost you?

    It isn't cheap. Even a little more since it is a used intake.
    I think it will be worth it though.

    Not sure about the FAST 90mm TB. I assume not much could be done.

    Yeah it would be worth it. I think 20 extra ponies would be a lot for your slow car. Might even help you make it into the 15's for a change.

    I'm sure you're right. These are the only ones I've ever had.

    About $200 a tire.

    Much better overall tire than those cheapo Sumitomo HTR Z's.
