Raised sc top, ya, that works lol. But i thought the dominion 1 was like $800 or so by itself? I want the transgo shift kit with the high rev kit cause at the strip i was goin from 2nd to third at 4000 rpms and it pretty much falls on its face right there...Exhaust i'm doin no matter what though 'cause i dont want to redo my head gaskets that was a ***** lol.Justin

The dominion I is 450 dollars. I need a rebuild anyway, and those are 399, so I will just get a better package for slightly more money.

Uhhh at the track you should be shifting it at 5000, not 4000. You don't need a shift kit for that

Well, i dont manual shift my aod, i stick it in drive and let it do its own thing, thats why i want a shift kit, also on the 1-2 shift it shifts at about 5200-5300 but on the 2-3 shift its shiftin around 4000-4700 depending on how warm the car is, i dont know what does it really. I also wanta shift kit cause i dont like wussy shifts like this has lol.....i like how my moms stang shifts*gets 1-2 rubber at about half throttle and at full throttle it'll bark the 2-3 shift* its a 01 gt auto with a shift kit and all.

Thanks for the info on the dominon 1 i think i'm gonan check into that maybe...Justin

The shift kit isn't going to raise your shift points, it is just going to shift the car quicker

You will shave off a LOT more time off your et if you shift your car manually

You could go for a chip, or a tuner. A descent throttle body, and if you're gonna do more exhaust work, I'd go with a pair of Borla mufflers. I have a pair on mine along with a magnaflow resonator, and I have to say, the exhaust sounds killer, I might be biased cause they're on my car, but I've heard allot of SC's, and it's one of the best sounding/performing systems I've seen for a "bolt on" modded SC.
Good Luck!

Bigger exhaust is good. If you don't get a set of headers, consider porting your manifolds... /shameless plug mode ON like the ones I do in the pics /shameless plug mode OFF.

I thought the high rev kit you can get for a transgo shift kit adjusted your shift points? I guess i just misunderstood the summit guy then i guess. But i dont manual shift my car cause i had bad luck the oen time i tried it at the track lol. i put it in first, launched and held it till about 4800-5000 then stuck it in drive and it didnt hit second till about 6000 and it scared the hell outa me and i just left it in drive and let it do its thing into 3rd cause i got scared.

tbird88- How much do you charge to port he stock exhaust manifolds? Also how long would i be without my manifolds?

Supercoupe- Thanks for the advice but i think i know what i'm gonna do. Also I like how the borlas sound but...I liek how the flowmasters sound a little better but i'm gonan run muffless for awhile more lol. Justin

Plenty of info on my For Sale page in my sig, things aren't too hectic right now and turnaround on manifolds is pretty much 2 weeks or less.

Good luck whatever you decide,

Justin...it's obviously up to you, but my system had the flowmaster's on it when I got it, so I've heard them both...had them both, and IMO the Borla's blow them away, and they actually sound better as they age! Not to mention the lifetime warrantee! Hey, anything's better than the stock mufflers, just that I was so impressed with the Borla's I can't help but try to steer people into considering them. Best wishes whatever you decide. BTW I thought the same thing you did on the TrasnGo, but I got a 5 speed, so I don't claim to know much about automatics, or shift kits.

I might give the borlas a shot, but i love the flowmaster on my sport, i didnt liek the oens that came with the kit so i put a 40seris on it lol. I'll check into the borlas a little more though. ALso i have a 5spd too, i'm not the greatest stick driver but still with my dad drivin it and me in my auto i destroyed it haha, but soon that $500 project car that turned out not to be a projcet car will kill my auto*building an engine for it soon*, i bought it from a guy that a shop told him the syncros were gone in it and i stuck in a new shifter and it drove perfect lol talk about dumb luck. Justin, too hyper right now for my own good lol

Around how much do you want for the throttle body? Around how many miles did you use it for? Around how much of a gain in the 1/4 do you think you got off of it?Thanks, Justin
