    I need some Advice please.

    I have my WS6 payed off now and I really want to spend some money on it.

    My original plan was to build a all out 408 540rqhp/500rwtq was my peak goal. My family owns a engine shop in OKC so parts are cheaper than like Texas-Speed but still Expensive.. Like you all know looking 8-9,000$ for the motor..

    So I have really recently been looking at just boosting my stock motor (upping the fuel system of course). Since I miss having a boosted car anyways (98GTP before). Because I could pull the motor put a good set of rods and pistons in it and I would be good to go for a little while (00 ws6 so maybe a ls6 intake?).

    I have 5-6,000 at the moment I want to spend what would you guys do?

    Save up some more money and get something else

    OR I saw this, http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/lsx-pa...-upgrades.html

    Is that my best bet? I need advice.

    Tell me what you think please!

    Well, i would do heads and cam if you havent already with a Fast 92 since you plan on F/I in the future you will really benefit from it plus H/C with Fast 92 will make a huge difference. Understanding that you wont hit your RWHP and RWTQ goal but with mods you have now you should pull 460+ rwhp easily with a good tune, H/C and Fast 92. If all you have now is 5-6k then thats what i would do, pulling the motor putting in good set of rods, pistons, bearing and so on plus a supercharger will cost more then that but if your willing to wait since youve waited this long you have a good start and saved up a good amount. You might have enough funds to really build good amount of power but also set yourself up good for the future if you still plan on going F/I. You can go many ways with it and its really preference on what you want and how to spend it.
