    Here is where you really need to think about what your goals are. If you want to Turbo the car, then don't worry about headers. If you want to put a blower on the car, then I wouyld buy some 1 7/8's primary headers.

    After that I would leave it alone, and save what little you have left for the motor for the FI application. I just don't understand personally the reason for putting a big turbo system on a car to only run less than 10 lbs of boost. Build the motor, put the turbo/blower on it and turn up the damn wick.

    I run a 9". If you are a m6 car I would run a 9" or a S60. If you are an auto, I would go with a 12 bolt.

    AS far as times go, with a sticky tire and a m6 you could get in the high 12's with that.

    You do know that 15-18 lbs of boost on a ls motor will get you 750+++ to the wheels, right??
