I'd start with gears and a higher stall TC from Dirtyd0g..
But that would require a new driveshaft and a chip
so I'm not sure that would be very cheap..
Probably looking at about 1000-1200 bucks for that...

And somehow the words "spolied brat" slipped into my mind.. :D
Took me 4 months to gather those parts and a Torsen T2 trac loc
and I still can't afford the chip!

Can your parents adopt me please??
I'm just 29 and an IT manager so I don't have to get that
much money when it's my birthday... :D

Just kidding..

Exhaust do help the top end though.. H€ll.. Anything
to make the engine breath at all is good.. :D

Yep... From Sweden..

I get almost everything from the states so I pay the same price as you but
shipping can be a killer... Usually never under 100 bucks...
Not over 300 either so sometimes it hurts a bit...
And shipping times isn't that fun either..
Got two ways... 4-10 days which usually takes at least 14
and a 4-6 weeks that actually takes at least 8 weeks...
Swedish postal service are complete cumb nuts..

The really bad part is the 29.5% in taxes I have to pay on parts
and shipping...
THAT sucks..

So yeah.. It can be a bit expensive but it's the only way so...

You can drive at 15 or is it a learning permit sort of thing? Just whatever you do, please learn how to drive the power you are looking to get. Not trying to sound like you dad or nothing, but I would hate for you to hurt yourself or someone else, not to mention what your insurance would do.

I suggest doing the j-mod, mercon V change, and tranny cooler first.
It will make that poorly built 95 tranny last longer, plus you'll be chirping the tires when you hit second.

The j-mod can be found in the transmission tech articles.

I agree ;) Along with an SCT chip you will be
cutting about .5 to a full second off your 1/4 mile

It's taken me almost two whole years to finally be ready for ported heads and a PI intake swap, given the few other mods and repairs I've had to do. I finally got SCTuned about a month ago. I still felt it unwise to get the Comp Cams I wanted initially. Hopefully down the road sometime.
