    If you're going to spend the money on HCI, you can make a lot more power than either of those combos above for the same or slightly more money.

    AFR165/185 heads
    Systemax II
    Pick a popular cam or have one ground
    30 lb injectors
    255 lph pump
    MAF
    75mm TB
    Nitrous Works Wet Kit

    There are some h/c/i kits too that are priced reasonable and each part is made for the other. So you dont run into matching problems.

    did you have stock hypertonic pistons that came in the 95 motors? Because i heard that you really can't use those heads with those kind of pistons. I am not sure that is just what i heard. Thats what kind of power i am looking for not alot, but not too-little. Ever take that combo to the track

    Where did you hear that at?? Thats complete BS, yes they were the stock hypertonic pistons. It was a great combo and made super power for what it was.

    not being able to use edelbrock heads because of hyper pistons... that is bs. the only reason for not being able to use some heads with pistons is because of piston to valve clearance. I about garuentee that edelbrocks will clear stock pistons.
