    if you're looking for bang for the buck then look no further than nitrous. Looking at probably $1k-$1100 for a decent kit with the safeties. You would probably still have enough money left over for heads/cam if shopped smart and bought some used stuff here and there.

    Depending on what your plans are, Which you didnt state... N20 is going to be your best ET adder by far. Sticky tires on that 9" and you got a great ET. If it was me, with my goals.... I would spend 3500 on a great set of used heads ( AFR 205's can be found used for a few hundred off) and a good size cam. Lower/mid 230's. Then.... some sticky tires to make that 9" happy. N20 is cool, but to me is always an 'add on' to the heads and cam. But dollar for dollar, you can not beat the power increase from N20.
