im saving up for the powerheads stage II kit, and its hard saving up the money cause theres so many other things i want, like yesterday i almost bought new headlights, the day before i almost bought a chin spoiler, and i really want to get gears (i cancelled my previous order because it was taking too long), and a new midpipe with high flow cats.

with this setup from powerheads, what kind of gears would you guys recommend? http://powerheads.com/headswap.html

those are pretty nice and should make some good power on your car, with a auto I still say 410's and with a manual 373's would probally be good with those heads. That should be pretty sweet, and I know how hard it is to keep saving instead of going out and spending half or all of what you have now :comando:

i was thinking 410's but i dont want to be spinning out when i take corners or anything, i think 373's might suit me better

Well do you know what cams your going to run? What is your sweet spot on the rpm band going to be ? Those are questions to ask when selecting gears

dude do you know anything about motorwork???

the throttle body alone gives like 15-30whp (depending on how thick of spray paint you use), and the brackets alone put you in double digits
