    If I got a set of longtubes, o/r midpipe, cai, pulleys and 3.73's what kind of power and 1/4mile times should I expect?

    im guessing this is going on your 95 ??? the full exhaust is good for around 20 or 25 rwhp, coldair and pulleys another 10 probally. As for gears if you can plant the tires they will give 2 or 3 tenths in the quarter. Those mods should make for a solid 13 second car.

    I think 14s are more realistic with those mods.

    full exhaust, gears, pulleys and a coldair kit should be plenty to get into the 13's .............it is on every GT I've seen with those mods, mabye you guys out west cant drive as good as us on the east coast :hammer:

    In in the States (North Carolina to be exact) and that set up is very common around here and I dont think I have seen anyone not run 13's with it :). With good driving and traction of course :dancing6:

    Stock maybe 190ish. I'd guess 200 or so with those mods.

    How much would a Trick flow intake add to this? Does any body run just bolt on's plus an intake with no cam?

    yea I've seen a few guys do that, you just have to make sure you get a intake that has a design and port size that will not cause a loss in tq.........such as the GT-40 / Edelbrock Perfromer / or the trusty and over used Cobra 5.0 manifold. With full bolt-ons with the intake you could be around 250 rwhp or so.

    I would think so, just check the power band specified on the intake and try to go by that. As long as the ports are not HUGE you should not loose the low end velocity air flow that would hurt your bottom end numbers. You want something that starts makeng power right offf Idle, like 1000 or 1500 rpm.
