Re: Whats next??

as typical as it sounds...


heads/cam/intake

perhaps a nice set of AFR 165s (unless you're planning a new bottom end or boost, 185s might be better) a matched cam, and one of the better intakes, edelbrock performer II or along those lines...

Re: Whats next??

if you are going to go blown in the future I would get some head studs from ARP. You can torque them tighter to prevent blown head gaskets. Depending on what you do now, you will need bigger injectors and a calibrated MAF. You should not need to worry about spark till blower.

Re: Whats next??

I dont have any personal experience with C&L but I have heard they are crappy too many times. your UDP are okay for now, but when you go blown you will want to return to stock to get the right ratio out of your supercharger. if you go turbo they will be fine.

Re: Whats next??

C&L doesn't work good as a MAF voltage modifier... as a standalone MAF with a tuner (like tweecer, PMS) they work just fine... sooo, tuner=fine no tuner=bad...

if your going to try to avoid doing your own tuning definetly look at a Pro-M as an option, if your going to do your own tuning i'd look into a ford mas of some sort. like a 90mm Lmaf in my case.

165's will be decent heads for a 6K rpm 302 with the right supporting parts, make sure and buy them bare and put good valves, locks, retainers, and for sure studs, the AFR studs are absolute crap, i've broken 3 of them.
185's for a 302 if you'd like to turn the rpm's up a bit..

but in all honesty im just shooting from the hip until you can tell us more about what your goals are.

Re: Whats next??

you will need more advanced help than mine, I will admit that. check out hardcore50 and SBFT.com those guys can get you there, expect to break the bank though... no cheap way to do what you want.

Re: Whats next??

Not true silverstang he'd be close with what he's planning and a solid bottom end, hell you should be close to 11s.. But sledge, if you want solid mid or low 11s, go AFR 185s minimum and a cam/heads/intake that will take advantage of it, heck 306s with the right heads/cam will run 11s but most likely not at stock weight

also expect to fully upgrade your rear, new gearing, better axles, and trans as well

Re: Whats next??

he wants to do it in a full weight GT, that would require alot more engine/tranny/suspension than my current setup.

if money wasn't a concern though, i'd do a big piston stroker dart! have fun! and shoot for 10's
