I'll assume you mean a 4+3 since I know you want a stick car.
1. Short Shifter (less time shifting = more time on the gas = better ET) $23
2. K&N Air Filter ~$50
3. Open Air Lid ~$50 (if you buy it, $0 if you make it)
4. 1.6 Roller Rockers ~$260
5. Catback Exhaust $900
6. High Flo Cat $200
7. 1/2 Tank of Gas for race day $17
Id look to get a 89 ZF6 if i could. Ditto on Scorps suggestions. Maybe you can look into TPIS headers for about $750. A 160 thermo and fan switch might keep your car cooler which could help your times on a hot day. Look into tires too.
With all these mods that u have suggested what times in the 1/4 should you expect to run with drag radials also. You guys are great thanks for the help. Oh and i would love to get the ZF-6 but the price jump is to much (From what I have seen) I only have 10K :cry , but i fugure that will get me something decent. thanks again for your time.
Location: Life is just one big track event. Everything before and after is prep and warm-up and cool-down laps GA
Re: 1988 Corvette mods? (StealDads67)
Add to scorps suggestions:
Gut the precats - probably $50 -70 to have someone do it. They have to cut them open, remove insides then weld them back together. My guestimate is about an hour labor.
Remove the "frisbee" on the water pump. Some folks picked up .1 sec just with that mod alone - its free!
Or replace the front Y pipe with one with no precats, not sure on cost.
My whole exhaust system is unstatisfactory so I'm planning on headears to tailpipe replacement, my budget is $1500 - 2000 for just that change.
OK, just to be reeeeeeeeal basic here, everything has to have an INSA and an OUTSA. You don't want a killer exhaust and no intake mods or the opposite, its all the combination. Someone here, I think its Vic89 has a great combo going using lots of stock parts. You can probably get a used Lingenfelter Super Ram for $800-$1,000 and some brand new ceramic coated Hooker Super Comps for about $450 but that kills your budget and forget hooking in street tires. I guess for $1,500, I would get drag radials ($320) and spare wheels from an old Camaro or something, (about $60) and then look at headers and exhaust while keeping an eye out for a used SR. You can get Hooker SC's that have all of the emission provisions uncoated for about $280.

Hey what do u mean by "normailized 1/4 mile" on that website? and how much did this stuff come out to. Comp Cams 1.6:1 ProMagnums w/ 7/16" studs, springs w/ Ti retainers. OH and guys, All installation for me is free :D I love my dad, He teachs me all the cool stuff also, so it will be little bit cheaper, and i can do most the stuff myself anyways, he just watchs and makes sure i dont do anyhting stupid :rolleyes: Thanks guys
"Normalized" means I applied adjustemnts to my ET & trap speed for weather conditions. Check out the math page on my site for the equations. Plug em into a spread sheet, get the temperature and baro next time your at the strip and you can normalize your numbers too.
I believe the cost numbers for the valve train stuff was "about" as follows:
$260-1.6:1, 7/16" ProMagnums
$50-7/16" rocker studs
$50-hardened guide plates
Though these numbers may be a little off (I'm not home now so can't access my receipts) but the total is accurate to within $100.
BTW, I tossed the oil shedders from the tops of my springs as they realy added some weight and these were not used on the LT1, to help raise the valve float limit.
