    Modding

    I'm putting exhaust on my car soon, this is going to be my first mod. I'm hoping to have h/c setup by next fall along with a couple other free mods. I just wanted to get some input on what you guys think should be done once you hit 400rwhp. I don't mean whats the next step but more like what are somethings I should look into replacing at that torque. clutch? rear end? already have sfc, any other suspension mods? Let me know guys.

    if you plan on moding and getting those kind of HP #'s. first thing to do is get a Moser Ford 9" rearend. The stock 10 bolt is a piece of crap and the f-bodys weakest link (I changed my gears and wish I saved the money and got the Moser rear, I am now saving to get one). Next is to get a new Torque arm, Rear lower control arms, subframe connectors (Like you got allready) Panhard bar (you won't get anywhere fast if you can't get the power to the pavement). Then I would start on your hp mods on your engine, (lid, intake, Throttlebody, cam, heads, headers, etc...) Just my .02 worth.
    Seems like everyone wants the power in the engine but once they get it, they end up breaking the rear end or bouncing the back wheels like a basketball.
    2000 SS Camaro Heads, Large cam, Fast 90, 9"w/430's and locker, yada yada yada... you get the picture
