    Spark plugs don't gain hp, they are just maintenance. Get some bolt-in lca relocation brackets to help you launch they helped me .4 on my e.t

    installuniversity.com


    ORRRRR you can get an air compressor and stick it in the lid-cheap nitrous.

    the relocating bracket doesnt sound like a bad idea at all.... i know they helped your launch but i didnt think it was enough to take 4 tenths off

    That was just for me, I was stuck in the 13.1's for the longest time I got the brackets installed and first time was a 12.9 then 12.78, 12.87 then 12.74. I was just figuring it out the launch so I am very happy.
    Results vary if you want to see my time slips hunt through my threads.

    As far as what you will feel a 1le sway bar if you like the turns got mine for $60. Get bolt-ins it cost me an additional $120 to weld in my brackets.

    Tune is over $100 and the sway bar would make your car "safer". I think after what was listed you aren't going to feel anymore seat of the pants till you slap down some more bejamins.

    port and polish your MAF ends. then go to the local hardware store and get a 3" rubber plumbing coupler for 6 bucks.
