    BIG upgrades on the way...Any suggestions???

    I have the funds and have put together a list of mods that i think will make the engine on the 01 T/A a bonafide beast. When the time comes later on, I'll make it a stroker motor. Let me know of any suggestions or "try this instead of that". I'm pretty open to anything. I'll be doing the work myself. Current setup is in the signature plus sport shocks and springs that i just did this weekend.

    Trickflow "as cast" 220 heads + YT rocker arms, pushrods
    Wet kit with window switch (150 shot)
    FAST 102/102
    85mm MAF
    60lb injectors
    walbro 225 fp

    BTW, stock bottom end, not a dd (sees the road on the weekends if its nice and not a chance for rain) and will make an occasional trip to the dragstrip, 99k miles

    I don't know if you have already done it or not but i would replace the oil pump LS6 or better and a stronger timing set. Also would say get some good head and rod bolts. ARP/Katech just my thoughts.

    I put a LS6 oil pump and a LS2 timing chain on when i did the cam, so i am good as far as that is concerned. Thanks.

    in my opinion id just buy the rocker arm trunion upgrade and save the money from the yt rockers. Buy the racetronix wiring kit and 255 pump. And for a nitrous kit id go to nitrous outlet. very nice stuff and dave or chris can hook you up!

    This. The hot wire kit with the Racetronix pump still uses the bucket funtionality in the tank whereas the Walbro pump set-up does not.

    Racetronix is made by Walbro, but the Racetronix set-up is much simpler/better.

    Correct. I don't think Mark here is a distributor for them.
