Thanks I had planned doing BBK Long tube headers, SLP cat back exhaust, BBK cold air intake and throttle body, then a tuner. I'm trying to see what I can do besides a supercharger to build the engine into a monster.

Also consider getting gears and upgrading your suspension. Cant have a monster without being able to get traction.

Re: How should i build my 2000 GT

its really hard to make our little old 2vs a monster without fi or spray. sadly to say:/ but i would start at the back and work my way forward, start with gears, upper and lower control arms, springs, struts, etc. upgrade clutch, short throw shifter(mgw or nothing) and full bolts ons, intake, exhaust, tuner, ud pullies, tb. and id do cams if i were you. hope this helps some.

Yeah, to get full bolt ons you could spend $2000 easy and have 260-270 at the wheels. Or you could save another $500-$1000 and get a nice blower kit and put down at least 350

Re: How should i build my 2000 GT

I'm on the exact same page...Of wanting to do a lot to my 2000 GT...

All I have is a short shifter, cold air intake, and full exhaust system with bassani mufflers. Love that car but I want more out of it.

Tunning it when it's an N/A motor won't do much will it?

I want headers, cams, an intake manifold, gears...So much! Ugh....

I'm with the OP...what should I do here?

Just got back from deployment btw..haven't been on the forum in forever.

Built motor? These motors are only good for about 300 to the ground at the most with full bolt-ons. Those times are achievable but not just by doing bolt-ons, they would need some serious suspension work, weight reduction and stuff like that to attain 11s on a bolt-on motor.

You can forge a 2v with a cobra crank, manley rods and pistons and keep it under 2k and just boost till the trans gives way

Yeah.. 12s with just suspension and slicks and full exhaust.. maybe a cai?

Having alot of power doesnt mean jack **** unless you can transfer that power to the wheels.. 300-350 is enough IMO

That's still gonna take one hell of a driver to hit 12s on just that alone.

+1, theyll break a high 13 stock on a great night, and i dont see getting 12s with just suspension and slicks, maybe a mid 13 but i think thatd be pushing it, id have to see a 12 to believe it.

That's two different heads. The c heads are a 4v head. The twisted wedge heads are 2v heads.
