    Which bolt-ons should I get?

    Okay, I just lost my wallet with my license, debit card, credit card, SS card, all of my cash...and now I have a few bills comming up totaling about $600.

    So, my 94 z28 is bone stock. What mods would you suggest me to get while only spending $500? I know it's not that much, but it's about all I have before college starts and I start my new job. Keep in mind, that I don't really have a way to install anything like exhaust/headers and the like myself so you will have to add in the install price for it as well.

    Too bad it's not a '93, as the speed density cars respond like crazy to bolt-ons. But, in any case, i'd say, go with a Flowmaster cat-back, affordable cold-air intake, and cut-out. $600 really isn't much, but atleast it's a start.

    Ok you live here in NC, if you go with headers go pacesetters LTs for 375 at Speedinc. and you can get them intalled for 200 bills at TickPerformance here in NC (TickPerformance.com) pretty resonable most charging 300-500 bucks he's good he's doing mine this week or go with intake, exhaust, Lid,SLP Ram air kit for 120 ported polished throttle body hope that helps soory for the lost of your wallet I know how that feels man. but let me know how you turn out

    Anything you can do yourself (or find a buddy that can do) is going to save you money. Most of what I suggest right now you can do in a relatively short time yourself. So far as the budget goes, I'd suggest:

    1. Free mods http://www.z28.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58417

    2. K&N cold air kit #57-3010-1 $225 http://www.kandn.com/dynocharts/57-
    3010-1.jpg $225 [K&N claims +18HP] (LS1 users would suggest getting a lid, FTRA or SSRA and a K&N filter, but I'm assuming your bone stock 94 Z has the stock LT1 for which I don't think they make any of those, or at least I can't find them listed for a '94)

    3. Have the TB ported, polished, and the bump stop ground $100 [+couple HP and better responsiveness]

    4. TB cooland bypass http://www.installuniversity.com/ins.../tb_bypass.htm (has showed a 5-7HP gain on the LT1 http://www.bmrfabrication.com/tb-dyno.htm ). TB bypass kits are <$20, but you can get the parts at a local auto part store (2 clamps, hose, and some vacuum caps to plug off the old lines in the TB). [+5-7 HP per dyno]

    5. Underdrive pulley $225 [+5-12 HP depending on where you get your info]

    These mods should get you started, and make the car more fun to drive. You need a larger budget for exhaust, cam and stuff...
