Yes, this is my DD.

Honestly, I have a goal in mind that I want to hit. My first is to break 240whp without head work. I'm pretty close to that.

After I get the head on and hit my next goal (going for 270whp), I may start backing off a bit. The car is loud. Not just a little loud. My dad can literally hear me from miles away. We played a little game this morning and I was amazed at how far away he could hear my car. It's kinda funny, but a little annoying. The car sounds good from inside, and sounds pretty mean most of the time... I just don't care for the volume.

At that point, I may sell a few things off and buy a cheap used SC kit. I'm sure if I sold the cams, intake, and exhaust, I could pick up an AA Stage I and a stock exhaust pretty cheap.

Are you not able to use the cams you have with the SC?

What are your thoughts about a turbo?
I personally think the Technique Tuning kit seems pretty sweet. Though I know it is expense, I do believe it would be well worth it. 315hp on a stock motor!? Thats sweet. I know it's no M but I prefer a relativly fast turbo 330 with a sick suspension.

Speaking of suspension, do you still have factory shocks? You still have the H&R springs right?

Oh and by the way, just to get you thinking I've included a link. You have probably seen both but I'm just putting the thought back in your head.

Man do I wish HPF made something.

TT would be my first choice, I'm just not going to be able to spend $7k on a kit.

Right, they're NA cams. They'd have to go.
