    need help

    ok here's the deal. i am a lil new to this and i need some input as to what direction to go. i am looking to be around the 450-500rwhp range. as of now i am at 308rwhp. very few mods include; headers, exhaust, smooth bellow, lid, and all the frame connecting stuff. what steps do i take now? i wann stay as much motor without a sc turbo or nitrous (although nitrous is not completely ruled out.) any info will help so please put in all the inputs you have.

    Those mods and only 308? I'd get a tune if you havent already.

    450-500 your looking into heads cam intake and the nitrous wouldnt hurt.

    Agree. H/C/I will get you close to there easily. Figure 15-20% h.p. loss through the driveline for rwhp.

    If your going to do the cam and heads, the FAST 102mm with matching throttle body.

    If not, then the FAST 92mm if you can find one used, or as a last resort the ls6.

    do the intake mani and the throttle body, itll be cheaper and easier to install... I prefer the ls6 intake because it is one whole piece but you said you arent going the FI route so the fast is definately the way to go. Id personally get the ls6 intake and run a single turbo
