Should I wait to get the tuner before I put it on?

I'd get a set of underdrive pulleys to, they made a big difference on my car

Re: 2v performance question

Gears will be your biggest noticeable difference

I paid 150. For gears and 200 for labor

Re: 2v performance question

Drop 4.10 gears into your rear and you'll take anywhere from 0.4-0.5 seconds off your 1/4 instantly. Put drag radials and aftermarket upper and lower control arms with upgraded suspension and you'll probably drop another 0.3 seconds off. And you can probably do all of that for $1600 if you shop around and do some labor yourself. That'll be the biggest "bang" for your buck, really. If by "bang" you mean throw your head further back into your headrest..

410s+Street tires = Long 60 ft ..

I get a average of 2.3-2.6 60ft with 373s and Nitto 555s

Buddy of mine has MT DR's with 373s getting a 2.0-2.2 60ft .. I know there is room for improvement but I cant imagine 410s
