Power gains

Ok so what I have on my 00 auto gt so far is:

Bbk cai
tuner that doesn't work properly
4.10 gears (gonna get put in later this month)
Magnaflow exhaust

I was wondering what else I can do to make my car faster

Long tubes
X Pipe
70mm Throttle body
Plenum
Pulleys
Gears
Cams
Port heads
J Mod
3200 Stall
A Good Tune
Cold air intake ( mainly for looks )

But if you really want to go fast, you need to think about putting the power to the ground with suspension, and sticky tires.

Aftermarket stall converter and j-mod will wake your car the hell up. The converter obviously requires removing the transmission. The j-mod is pulling the valve body out and drilling out holes in the separator plates and removing a few springs to allow faster/firmer shifts.

Pullies... the BBK aluminums are actually good and one of the few BBK products I'll recommend. For the Plenum/TB get the Trick Flow combo. Summit has it for $279 shipped and it is easily the best bang for the buck setup out there and high quality.

Basic budget suspension upgrade:

-Max Motorsports CC plates
-Steeda lower control arms, leave the stock uppers alone
-Steeda subframes
-Lowering springs at the drop you want
-Tokico Shocks/Struts
-Good wheel/tire combo

This will get rid of the stock 4x4 look and help you launch better. However it takes a good bit of coin to get the SN95 up to even stock S197 levels.
