    LT1 engine upgrade any performance suggestions?

    Although I had a thread about modifying the body, that will come later on down the line. Tomorrow my motor will be out and I am trying to figure out what I need. I was told that the heads may be cracked so I know I will be needing new ones, but what else. I am new to car performance, but I am not new to general vehicle knowledge. I start at Autozone in about a week (20% discount WHOO HOOO lol) so I am trying to get a list together for all the parts I will need. I will be researching parts on the net, but I figured why not ask the experts here first.

    To clarify I am asking for a list of things that would help my engine performance. I don't mind repeats of brands and parts, that shows me the reliability and popularity of a product. I also don't mind explanations of why you all chose those parts actually I encourage them. Please don't make this a fist fight thread. Just throw your ideas out there. Preferably someone who has done it or is doing it. And

    Please do your best to break it down to me, because although working at Autozone will up my knowledge, I would like to learn on here too.

    One more I am thinking about cut outs, and a 150 shot, what do you all think?

    Thanks for all the input I really appreciate all the help

    How much are you looking to spend? Are you going to go to the track or just use it on the street?

    Send the heads out to get ported and add a cam. Check out lloyd elliot porting. Also add some headers, long tube if you can. Then you just need a tune for the computer.
