    what is your budget? what are your goals for the car?
    what is allready done to the car?

    id say the cheapest way to go would be A&A's vortech kit....
    at ($5,500) w/ injectors.
    then you would need a BAP ($250)
    supporting mods would be a good set of headers/x-pipe ($1,500)
    good clutch ($1,000-2,000)
    a tune ($500-1,000)

    so..... between $8,000-9,000 you will have a 550rwhp MONSTER....

    but the stock bottom end wont last to long with power like that so when ever your pistons let go, there's another $2,500-7,500 for a good forged bottom end.
    315rwhp 98 SILVER Z28 (3500lbs)- SOLD
    400rwhp 99 HUGGER SS (3375lbs)- SOLD
    340rwhp 02 YELLOW Z06 (3040lbs)

    good luch either way.... but do some real research first.... there ALOT of hidden cost and supporting mods you will need with FI..... and if you want to do i RIGHT, it will be near $10,000.
