    5 grand to spend....mmmm

    Ok so what do I do with 5000 bucks. I allready have ms4 cam, double vavle springs, chromemoly pushrods, ls6 intake, lid, k&n air filter, tires, lt headers with td exhaust, and ngk tr55 irdium spark plugs with msd 8.5mm wires installed on my car. Not tuned though. I have a moser 9" rear with 4.11 gear ratio and full spool diff and textralia oz700 clutch waiting to be put on. What should I do with the 5 grand?

    I'd get some quality heads like Trick Flow or AFR, FAST intake, TB and a tune. Save the rest for a stroker short block down the road.

    If you want heads that will clear that cam then Stage-1 set or Trickflows. I would do the Trickflow 215cc, 42# greentop injectors, a ported 92mm Fast and Tune then call it a day. That should put you close to 500 rwhp.

    Or you can take the engine out sell it for 3-4k then add the 5K and get a nice built LS2 402 or a 427 L92.
