    Congrats on the guards also. I joined after I served regular time. My advice is to use the college bennies too.

    with a 6 speed this should be feasable even with out heads, and easily with heads you could make those #'s. You need to figure out what kind of power range etc you want with the cam, there are plenty available that will make the power you desire.

    I also joined the guard about 3 months ago after serving on active for 3 years in the 82 ABN DIV. With and 8K budget you should have no problem achieving 400rwhp. Heck, all u need is bolt on's and a 125 shot and u can get that for less than $1500. My car has just over 100K miles on it too and runs very strong but the clutch probably isn't going to hang on much longer. U might want to set aside 450 for a new one also.

    I'll be joining the guard when I get out soon in two months. I'll be getting 20k, half up front. Why not go with a supercharger or turbo?

    i dont think 8k is gonna be enough for all of that. you need to figure out exactly what you want. If you skip the rebuild and get heads, cam, and a rearend along with all associated parts, you should have a pretty happy motor. The tranny may or may not need a rebuild. If its a m6, then id do the clutch and hydraulics too. Suspension is something you may wanna look into doing also. Do you have any mods yet? What are the ultimate goals? just to hit that peak power?
