As far as the tuner goes, I would go with SCT. These guys carry them www.americanmuscle.com but I would search google products to see if you can get it cheaper.

Concerning the bigger mods, what is your budget, goal, and expected lifespan of the car?

I got the heads and cam from www.supersixmotorsports.com
The heads are $1450 and the cam is $395; or you can get a package deal that also inlcudes ported intakes for $2500. After that you have to worry about installation and tuning.

so you didnt even get ported intakes? do you have a video of what your car sounds like?
Yeah I didn't get em' but it is in my future plans. Mind you that I also have a lot of supporting mods which helped me get my numbers.

I have a video clip somewhere, let me dig it up.

Get a SC: vortech or procharger. They come in kits, with everything you need and will easily push you above 200 hp/tq. you'll be spending about $3500 new or you could find used kits pretty readily on ebay. I got on for my SN95 for $1300 but had to get extra parts so i ended up spedning about $1600. not a bad deal if you ask me.

for me, NA is only worth it if you go all out. Rebuilt bottom end, more aggressive camshaft, p/p heads and intakes etc....basically a totally rebuilt motor...and those can be pricey $5k+ and even then you won't get more than 300 hp. Add a SC or turbo on top of that though and you'll see your numbers sky rocket.

Depends on your goals and money.

with the procharger kit from rpmoutlet.com is it better to get the tuner with the kit or get it from vmptuning.com

Please Explain.
I have purchased from them twice, the first time was my UD pullies. I ordered online and waited about two weeks and did not recieve it. I called them up and asked about my order and they said they had problems processing the card and they canceled my order. So I ordered with a different card and the parts came in 2 days (I live really close to them). A week later I recieved another package with the same parts. They had held my first credit card number for available credit when they told me the order was canceled. Then they said I could return them but I would have to pay shipping both ways and a 5% restocking fee for thier mistake.

The other time I ordered a 160 degree thermostat and got a 180.
