Any good name brand with the seat supports and weld ins are stronger than bolt ins.
I have the Kenny Brown Super Subs on my car and they are good quality pieces, but Maximum Motorsports and other name brand subs are probably just as good.

Yes it is.


If I were buying today I would probably go with the full length MM subs.

Not until you change over to MAF. It's not worth wasting the money and changes to the air flow on a speed density engine can be detrimental to its operation.
3.73 for manual trans and 4.10 for auto are the usually recommended ratios.

It's a stock aod would a shift kit be worth it to install?

I don't think so without beefing up the clutches and other components.
The AOD is pretty weak, so before adding much in the way of performance you might want to get it rebuilt with some upgrades to handle the extra power without it puking on you.


Maybe this place can help guide you through what is needed.

I wouldn't use UD pulleys. IMO they cause more problems than they do good.

Go ahead and install the subframe connectors, replace the upper and lower rear control arms with aftermarket ones, remove the quad shocks, and upgrade the brakes.


Then save up and do the MAF conversion .
After that add your engine performance parts as you can afford to.
