I was wanting to know what i could get to add power that want be to expensive with what mods i have. I have 3.73 rear gears, shorty heads, and aftermarket exhausts. I want to get a cold air intake and a 5 speed tranny. What else could i add? I guess what im saying is what is worth the money to get horsepower?

Do check out that thread, but one other thing you could do right off would be get a short belt to bypass the power steering and AC. Or the AC and smog pump.

Thanks that helps will help me out alot. Hey eagleautosports do you have the AC and smog pumb short belt. If so have you ever thought about putting your AC back on for the summers in North Carolina?

It hasn't gotten hot enough for me to put it back on. I still have the compressor but not the condensor, it was pretty beat up... I have no idea how, looked like I used it as catcher for baseball practice... But I also have the March alternator adjustable bracket, so I had to get a whole new belt by Goodyear so the standard length short belt didn't fit. Took trial and error to find the one to fit.

Taking the AC off doesn't add that much power, it's mainly to reduce weight which when adding everything up, it can be almost 50 pounds off the nose of the car. I like hot weather anyway, and no woman whining about wanting AC for me either. The 255 AC is enough for me... 2 windows down and doing 55 mph...

yea 255 is fine with me for now but i also only have my car primered not painted. When i get my car painted it will be a red color. It will absorb more heat them if it was white or primered.
