Check out the in the beginning thread in the stickies. There is some useful info in there for starting out. Then there's always a H/C/I swap for even more hp.

Look into the trick flow track heat top end kit. Heads, cam and intake will give you around 350 to the wheels. Compared to the stock 225 hp it a huge step up for about 1900 bucks. It's a great bang for your buck

That 350 is at the crank. Roughly 280-300 at the wheels.

It all depends on the tune. DSS racing sells a main girdle that will allow a stock block to handle 650+ hp. But you will need a good tune regardless

I would definitely do your heads, cam and intake first. Also swap out your rear end gears if they are stock to 3.55, 3.73 or 4.10s. Upgrade the fuel system and suspension and work your way up to a turbo or supercharged setup.

If he is gonna run a turbo I would stay to 3.55 gears or smaller. Other wise he won't be in boost very long.

Paint flames on it! That adds a good 50-60 hp.

ha its funny ive never even ran the track heat Top end kit, but i know some people that do and they definitely have some power.

BUT, if you are going to boost it, i would highly recommend the edelbrock victor junior setup. Thats what i have, heads, upper and lower intake, and a custom cam. its an absolute monster. i'm sure the trick flow setup will take the boost, but the victor jr setup is made for boost. but in the mean time (until it's boosted) the victor jr setup will not see it's full potential, and it's a bit more pricy

Haha I knw it's a late reply but thanks man I might just wait to do the the turbo set up until taxes come in il have a little more money to play with haha maybe even upgrade the suspension to because there are so many more wheel choices instead for 5 lug instead of 4 lug since I already have the 03 Cobra black 4 lugs right now
