Mods

So with my 02 gt I have k&n intake, bbk shorty header, bbk x pipe, flow master exhaust, 3.73 gears, coils, and 100 dry shot nos. I just order a pulley set and had questions about what next. What size throttle body? I was looking at AM's bbk 78 combo with the upper. And then I was thinking injectors maybe?? Short shifter??? Opinions???

Without FI, 70mm is as big as you should go. A 78mm will work but I've seen where on N/A motors, you get more gain from the 70 than the 78. If you plan on getting a blower in the near future, then I'd go ahead with a 75-78mm

And as far as the shifter goes, there are lots of threads on them you can search for, most will say MGW or steeda tri axe. I personally have the tri axe. Very nice and precise, mechanical feeling.

But with all the stuff done plus that 100 shot of nos wouldn't 70 be too small? And it's cheaper if I do the 78 combo bbk :/ how much more gain would I get by doing 70 over 78?

It's not a significant difference I don't think, and I didn't think about the nitrous. A 78 would probably work fine, I'm going with the accufab 70 mm tb and plenum combo though. It's a little more expensive, but it's the prettiest and has probably the best rep of any I've read about.

So it's worth the extra $60 for steeda rather than getting the SR short throw?

Ok cool yeah I want the accufab but it's a little out of my price range. Thank you for all your help. You have any opinions on injectors?

I've never used an sr shifter, but I can tell you first hand the steeda is awesome.

Hands down, the best shifter out there. The quality is miles past the billet xerox copy factory shifter style of the other shifters like Pro-50 and Steeda. All they did was take the exact factory shifter, beef up the metal, raise the fulcrum a tiny bit, and slap a decal or engraving on it. MGW is an entirely unique design and it is AMAZING.

MGW will be my first mod. Will help so much DD'ing it and racing it. And is pretty cheap.
