    my car feels like it is running out of steam up twords 4700-5100rpms, what mods can i do to help this out. I'm already getting a tma street turbo kit this summer, i'll be burnin' gt's in no time! i just need a little bit more top end.

    thanks,
    sean

    There is a lot you can do. I have the following done to mine to increase performance, with the mods done I climb all the way to 6200 before she falls off.

    cam, ported heads and ported intakes. I have a lot more done, but that is the jist of it. For a full mod list just click on the link at the bottom in my sig.

    He has a V6, so that will not work at all.

    two things hinted me off, the first one is its posted in the V6 forum and the second is the TMA turbo kit. TMA turbo does 99% kits for the v6.

    May I suggest that you get your engine built first. Or at least get a cam with ported heads and intakes to help with the power.
