Default stock as stock can be, but they still can't catch me!

bonny is bone stock til this weekend when i install the 3.4 pulley and gatorback belt. hope that doesn't cause any problem. done alot of research and didn't find any horror stories. well all except for the one i found where the wrong pulley puller was used. glad i found that one.lol. looking to do more mods but with a wife and 3 kids money for mods isn't too plentiful right now. just bought the car in december and i have raced it the last 3 friday nights. i was suprised at how well it done on the track. it ran a 9.7 in the 1/8 this past friday night. seen a gtp out there running 8.8'* and talked with him and he gave me some insight on alot of mods that were in my price range. any more info would be very helpful.

cliff,

Along with that 3.4 pulley, get a free flowing intake on there. There are many CAI'* out there. It will be probably the first thing you should do on there.


BTW, welcome.

Ditto on the intake. You're not going to get all you can out of that pulley otherwise.

Welcome!

welcome to the club!

As far as inexpensive mods, trying the clearing headlights and tail-lights if you're interested..
