    Well this topic has been done before but now it is later and i figured guys plans have changed. Mine have changed drastically. Originally i was going to go turbo, get a g force/ astro performance t5 and afm pms to tune it. Well there is no way i can do that now with the money situation so now i am going a different route. I am going to spray the car now. Going with a 100/125 wet shot. Getting an adjustable fpr, 255 fuel pump, "flip chip tune" and thinking of getting some subframe connectors too. It will be interesting to see how my traction is. These kdw's hook pretty good but they are only a 255 street tire so i think traction will be non existent when i add the nitrous. They pry have around 5k on them so i wont need a new set for awhile so i figured id beef up the suspension with subframe connectors and maybe some lca's even. I want to start going to the strip this spring and if i do i may invest in a couple of used rims and get some drs for them to get some traction @ the strip. Then we will see what i break with the added traction. So what are your plans?

    Nothing, until my car sells or I can save enough money to get the parts I need.

    for now, im gonna put on my aluminum driveshaft and get a driveshaft safety loop so i can finally use the MT ET streets i have sitting in my room....besides that, i wanna sell my nitrous and anything else i dont really need and just save as much money so i can either a) get a supercharger or b) get a motorcycle

    I wouldnt bother with the seq tails now. Ya they look good but stance is more important imo. You have new wheels waiting to be put on right? So i think springs should be next

    ps here is my NAWZZZ. Its awesome. I dont have to go fill it up just open it up when i need it. Dont mess with me [​IMG]

    If your talking to me,........the KB doesnt offer quite as much hp as the Procharger BUT the Kb has power right off idle that the ATI doesnt have.....as well as that damn TQ line :bunny3: :bunny3: :bunny3: :bunny3: :bunny3:

    The procharger typicaly does anywhere from 450 to 500 rwhp on the 99-01 Cobra with the Stage 2 kit and 3 core intercooler.

    The KB I want would be the second kit offered for my 99, it has the intercooler with it and 9psi and makes a max 462 hp with the 9 pounds of boost.
