An offroad 3" X or H pipe will work. When I said "race" tune I did not mean one that requires racing fuel. I meant a tune for the drag strip. I believe you can get tunes from 87 octane up to 93 octane. However, the first thing to do is replace your "bad tires". Adding power will not help you if you can't get your tires to hook up. Also, if you get drag radials you need to get someone to show you how to do a proper burn out to heat them up. It does take some getting used to if you have not done it before.
