Up to you. Do you wanna go fast? Do you wanna lower it? I would lower it and put some wheels on it personally.

Start with some bolt-ons and go from there. Get the suspension dialed in with some sticky tires and you can run some decent times

Probably a diff rebuild, you might be able yo get away with a fluid flush but the clutch packs are probably toast. How many miles are on it?

Sure. I personally went with 4.10s but I do a lot of city driving. It all depends on your commute and if you want to sacrifice highway mileage for a shorter gear.

I honestly can't tell you. I haven't gotten to take mine down the strip, let alone the road course, to try them out yet. For a quarter mile track the 4.10s will have you getting pretty deep into 4th by the time you cross the traps. This is all assuming you have a stock size tire.

Full exhaust. Gears and spray it. I wouldnt waste all the time on every bolton. 2vs are on a dead end road with just boltons.

I think steeper the gear the better they are for racing. But awful mpg's an it's harder on ur engine always being high rpm's. If it's mainly only a track car go 4.10's... 3.73's seem to be mainly for people that want more pep and still commute an DD.

If you're going for a sleeper then you're definitely gonna want some gears and some nitrous like Rapinator said.

I have a 99 Gt and he made a real difference by the seat of the pants. Much more fun to drive also!
