Yup, one often overlooked step in building these cars is making sure you can use all of the horsepower you have!

I've had good luck with UPR Products suspension, Nitto & Mickey Thompson tires.

also an upper plenum and throttlebody upgrade will do it some good. but first thing is first..... gears.

what number of gears should i use im running the stock rims also what tb works better?
Gears depend on a lot of factors. Does the car see a lot of highway miles? Are you into drag racing? Future mods like blower or turbo?

Give us more info and we'll recommend a gear.

I think a 3.73 is a good all around gear, might recommend 4.10s if you're more of a drag racer though.

3.55's wouldn't even be a worthwhile change.

3.73's if you do a lot of extended 70+ mph on the highway
4.10's if you cruise town mostly, and short jaunts on the highway over 70mph
4.30's if you want max acceleration, and barely drive on the highway.
