I put a Cervini's ram air hood (with the upgrade) on my car, so does someone have any advice/experience to give about the next mod I should do that will assist ram air the best? The motor is stock with headers and ram air being the only bolt-ons. Funds are tight right now so please take that into consideration.

That "ram air" hood is probably hurting performance more than helping. If you want real ram air get a blower or turbo!

Here's some pics. I've always liked the style of the hood and bumper so after I rear ended some dipshit stoner in some POS tempo I had good reason to get it. Both the hood and bumper are very well made, and the insert for the ram air fit perfectly. After the insert was glued to the underside of the hood I used filler to blend it into the hood. The bumper cover came with brackets to tie the bottom of it to the frame. I had my lil bro weld some angle metal to the frame and tied the brackets into those. I riveted a piece of flat aluminum to the bottom of the left and right side of the bumper to keep them from sagging over time. Performance wise, I haven't noticed a difference when I accelerate from a dead stop, but at highway speeds (50+) the engine is more responsive to slight throttle inputs and the tranny is not so quick to drop into third.

Within a month the car will be painted so it won't look like such a beater. At the end of this week I'll find out when I can take it into get it painted, I'm just waiting for my fiance's uncle (he has a paint and body shop) to give me the go ahead.

Sorry...I think its rice. IMO any mods that you want people to ''hey look at me'' is rice. IE, body kits, wings, neon, etc. Well good luck with the paint.

I would skip on the ram air though because I knew someone with a
94 GT that had ram air and somehow got a small bird caught up in there.
 
do heads

head are the most restrictive part on our cars... swapping them out will yield better power as well as MPG

a much better mod then ram air since they are making power @ idel when ram air does nothing until yer moving... fast
