Ideas for mods

Me and my dad r going to start adding more horses to my pony, we r geting long tube headers, hpipe, 4.10 gears and maybe a tuner, it already has a cold air induction, can u think of any more cheap mods for more horses?

Define cheap. A throttle body and plenum will go good, along with a dyno tune.

Hmm a throttle body/ plenum combo is about 500. Do you have an auto or a 5 speed?

Check around some junk yards you want two turbos for generation one turbo eclipse .weld the turbos in right at the cross of your x pipe for maximum thrust and spool control this is a set up for the zo6 corvette This turns you in to a true sleeper the flow masters are louder than the whistle I have the set up on a mustang with the v6 and under drive pulleys and I'm 413 on dyno 594 on a friends 97 4.6 but we are using trick and flow heads on gt

I think that was for the Accufab combo. Maybe I saw that in a magazine, I don't remember any more

Its an auto, we rnt going to turbo it, we r going to supercharge it maybe nxt summer, we want low end power, we may add a small turbo to the super charger later for mid range power

Superchargers have little to no lag, unlike turbo chargers, and we want street, just something for stoplight to stoplight and 0-60

U got it backwards dude, its called turbo lag, superchargers have very little to no lag, superchargers r used more for low end power while turbos are for upper power

Not tryn to get u pissed but ur wrong, maybe a walmart supercharger will lag due to the fact its made n china, but your good ol USA's do not, wen u hear a turbo, that's wen it starts working, which is about half way thru a quarter mile track, ever watch Pass Time on Speed Channel? Every car with a turbo is asked how much torque and hp is made and how far down the track until it kicks n, u dont c many superchargers on track cars bc they only help with low and mid range, unlike a turbo that helps mid to high range.

There is a reason you only here about turbo lag. A supercharger is belt driven so no lag. There are thousands of dyno vids and experts that prove you "mistaken".

Smaller turbos have hardly any lag, but hardly any top end too.

True, smaller turbos have a smaller amount of lag, but smaller turbos give u power at lower rang power as oppose to the larger 1s that work at ur top end

Well hope the 98 part doesn't relate to his 2nd car because it's a 99-04 body style...

Ba sol you are right and on the right page a turbo works on the right application yes I run a TPI pro comp transmission with a 3500stall so I leave the line at 28 lbs of solid boost and I'm at the 1/8 of a mile before the five speeds hit second gear I run 6.05 at the track at 129 mph on 89 octane And yes this is in the v6 I also run a 75 shot wet So we both can sit back and laugh when these guys get out ran by there mothers g8 lol
