    what to purchase next?

    im trying to decide which route to take with my car next. right now i have a cai, headers, y pipe exhaust, 85 mm maf and a tune done. i was wondering what goodies i should get next for my car. i was thinking about a moser 9 inch with 3.73's, a mild cam with heads, or a FAST 92/92 intake and tb combo. which ones do u guys think is the next best purchase. what kind of prices am i looking at, and wat gains would i expect?
    2002 z28-slp cai, slp loudmouth, slp tuned headers, slp 85 mm MAF, slp high flow cats, 3" y-pipe and collectors

    The cam and heads will net you the most horsepower. Are you planning on putting slicks on and running at a track? If so then the 9" would be a necessity at some point. I think cost for hp I'd do the FAST last.

    wasnt thinking about slicks but i was thinking about taking it to the track every once in a while, i figured that the rear end would be better to strengthen up from wat ive heard about our rear ends. right now im just trying to figure out which would be the best thing to do first

    Just depends on how hard you're going to beat on it and what kind of peace of mind do you want from your drivetrain. If you're not taking it to the track soon I'd say maybe just do the heads and cam and the FAST 92/92 if you have the money.

    Yeah if you end up doing a cam you definitely want a stall....really you want a stall whether you do a cam or not....they're a blast and really wake the car up. You can do gears when you replace your rear.

    Yeah something small/moderate would be in the 224-228 range for a cam. I wouldn't get anything smaller than a 3600 stall myself. You will definitely need a tune after heads/cam/stall!

    They will help reduce wheel hop and chassis flex when launching and help with handling. I think they cost under $200.00

    Just depends what kind of budget you're on...trick flow and afr seem to make some of the better heads but they cost more. A 3600 is very streetable but just know that you will lose some gas mileage with it but it's much more fun to drive. You can go with a 2800 or 3000 stall if you prefer but the higher stall will get you into your powerband quicker.
