    Stuck on what to mod next...

    I am kinda stuck on what my next mods should be. I have ported LS1 heads, 222/224 cam, fully built internals, full bolt ons, 3400 stall. I am stuck between getting drag radials an LS6 intake or LS6 heads. I'm getting 2.0 60ft. times with my street tires so I can drive but I want more power. Azny pointers from you veterans out there???

    You might want to concider a F.A.S.T. intake. With the 78mm intake, 1 7/8" Kooks headers, 78mm ported/polished TB, descreened and ported MAF , comp cam and a tune we got 450 rwhp. Not bad for a 2002 Z06. The LS6 is a great intake though, that's what I'm running but didn't get close to the numbers that the F.A.S.T. intake put out.

    if you go intake, go FAST. screw the Ls6 intake once you have H/C...

    since you're an auto and youre stalled get suspension under the car and tires...1st!!!

    there was a test on the different intakes..it showed that the 78 fast was useless so thats out of the question. The fast 90/90 is probbally your best bet. the FAST gives ALOT more top end numbers then the ls6..but it was also shown that the ls6 gave better low end and mids..but it really all depends on the set-up. i'd make sure you have a fully built suspension before anything else...what good is 500rwhp if you can only put 350 down?

    I've got a non intercooled C5 Magnacharger with extra snout for porting I'll sell you. It will put right at 80-85 rwhp with a good tune. I'm still debating a GTO Maggie for looks. I can get you the kit to convert to a 90mm snout and firewall patch also if interested so it will fit the F-Body.

    While I would love to tell you to get the DR's, if you start hooking on a 10 bolt, be ready to replace that. Until you have a 12 bolt or 9" rear, you're going to have the same problem that so many of us face: too much power to put to the pavement.
