To get the most out of your engine...a chip would make a world of a difference. Dunno if you feel like paying for one, but you'll definitely love it.

thats what i planned on doing next b/c i have heard so many good things about it (shifts, a little more hp, etc.) but i definately know that i need a few more mods to hit this mark.

a guy i know at a local mechanic shop was supposed to get sct certified and start carrying these chips, so i was gonna get one from him.

a new rear end with better gears won't give your engine more hp, but it will get more power to the ground. throw in an aluminum driveshaft, a chip, dynotune, and you might get closer. i doubt that'll be worth another 24hp to the wheels though

i dunno, you have all the standard bolt ons. if you went with an HCI package you'd probably break 250 rwhp. enough to spank a GT if you wanted. i dunno... it's all a matter of how much you want to spend

thanks, i think i'm just gonna go w/ a chip and a dynotune. i dont think i'm gonna go into the engine for now. its a daily driver and i dont race it (unless i'm challenged) so i'm content with that for now.

now later on down the road after my warranty is up at 75k miles..............thats a different story. stage 2 power pack with a possible 50 shot

that'll be good. i'd still recommend at least some rear gears though. the stock gear setup leaves a lot to be desired. i can't wait to change mine

those future mods + stock gears w/ no posi-trac = BAD
