The plan

My original plan was to drop a 4v in next year. But it looks like my budget is not going to be enough for that. Instead I was thinking about just supercharging the 2v. An maybe adding cams, an switch out the super chip tune for the sct tuner. Would like to get some input from everyone.

Uh, no, whole rotating assembly. But the stock rotating assembly will support around 400rwhp if that's your goal for now.

Its good for way more than the stock rotating assembly can handle. Have it tuned to 400/400 and make sure you go to a person who knows wtf they are doing. A good safe tune at that level and your motor can live happily for a long time. Start pushing much past that and you'll toast the motor though.

Well how many miles are on your motor and how much power do you plan on pushing? If your motor is in good shape and you've never been much past the power level you are currently making I HIGHLY recommend just boosting what you have now, tuning it to 400whp and have fun with/get used to it at that level before you do anything else. Once there, I'd recommend finding a good block to put on a stand in the garage and start building it up to drop in when you want to go higher than that. There is also the rest of the car to consider. A 400whp car setup properly with all the right chassis stiffening, suspension/tires/driveline is going to walk away from a stock setup with a 600hp motor just dropped into it.

Right now I have about 99,000 on the car. All I have done to the car is add a super chip flash, bbk cai an 3.73 gears, new differential, and all bearings on the rear end changed. I would like to get over 500 mark if i can but i would enjoy 400 to start lol. I was thing about adding exhaust an maybe some lowering in about a month.

Ok, so here is what I come up with. Exhaust, H pipe to finish bolt ons. Chasis, sub frame connectors, lowering springs, control arms, strut tower brace, caster camber plates, anti roll sway bar. Did I miss anything? Is there anything in this list I don't need? I appreciate the help with this.

Good set of rear tires nitto, bfg, hoosier, Mickeys it will do wonders. My question is, is this a dd or weekend warrior? Because there is different approachs to the suspension you can go all drag and get better hook up or a good street/strip setup.

Right now I have nt555 on her. Planning to go to drag radials once I switch to deep dish on the rear. I ride my motorcycle all summer, an try to ride the motorcycle as much in the winter as I can to. So it's more of a weekend warrior. It spends more time setting in the garage then anything.

On stock internals? Oof well if it runs well more power to you, I wouldn't push it that high but that's me. You are probably on borrowed time if the rods are stock but then again some motors are freaks that hold up to more than they should. Lots of guys running 5.0 blocks at 500+whp for years and others tune them to 450whp and they blow up. A lot of it is in the tune and RPM too.

Yeah stock internals. It's all about the setup, the tune and the driver.

No issues.

I can tell you one thing though...I'm never taking my car to the track again, car takes too much pounding imo not worth it.

The only thing that worries me about running stock internals on mine is not know how the previous owner treated it. She runs great but I am still a little iffy about it.

They like it when you beat on them. As long as the fluids are good and you aren't a moron it'll take it like a champ.

I don't doubt this because I'm not afraid to let it loose and it seems to be running better than when I bought it 11,000 miles ago.

I agree with Scotty. Get supporting mods and some bolt ons an suspension work then go f/i and find a good tuner and tune to about 400-450 conservatively then save $ and build a forged setup to put in when you get mod bug again and get use to the power and want more.

Oh man the 2.2 is the shaznats. That thing screams like a mother****er. Way louder than the 2.1L. And they didn't make too many of them... If the price is right... hell PM me a price too, I might be interested.
