    A 50 to 100 shot of nitrous is not a bad idea. The thing I like about doing just headers and a converter the power is always there. With nitrous you have to refill the bottle and keep refilling. With both setups you would want Nitto's or ET Streets for a good run. You can get the time you are looking for without a cam.

    The question is...where to find N02 around here and how much will it cost. But you could probably just ask around and find someone who knows.
    I know a few guys that know about NOS the guy's on Salsbury RD or really good and the boys in Cap Pele JD racing are great as well but like you say they prefer turbo's and superchargers but I can't swing it I'm thinking maybe gears 3:73 a Yank 3200 stall converter and a few tranny parts as mentionned below Hey I still have my 99 TA black leather for sale 179565km looks like new I bought a 2000 with 5950km and I think my old one looks better lol If you know anyone looking for a good deal I would lower it if I could sell it now if not I'll sell in the srping Cheers

    What are you driving????

    If you were going to see a lot of track time yes. But I think you are looking for DD fun. IMO headers and a converter will give you that fun with 2.73's.

    Thanks again for your great recommendation and I think I will do exactly that and maybe the NOS for track days and I might do 10 to 15 runs a summer I'm not a track king was going to say queen I guess that is the proper saying but it didn't feel right :-) You really made me make a descision and I appreciate that very much! That and the WS9 hood will be my dream car since I was a kid with smokey and the bandit lol Now I have 2 birds in the garage and I need to sell one to pay for the upgrades but there's always the line of credit till I sell !!!

    Cheers

    Oh and the Flowmaster exhaust that's on my old one would work with the headers right Cat back sounds great Loud but nice

    Circle d makes a nice 3200 street stall for $400, they also make more expensive ones that are better track ones as well. LS6 intake and a ported tb us a easy install and usually $300 to $350 for a nice used setup. Lt headers and a ORY with a good catback will give you.some nice gains with the other parts like the intake. Then get a tune from a local shop or frost to get the most of of the mods.
    Then you can get a cam if you want more power. I was happy with just the volt ons and tune for a while.
    3.73's with a good tune really wake the automatic up.
