Jeffrey10x2 has done very well for his 92 SSEi. Maybe he'll chime in here and give you some tips. I've done some similar things as him. Look in my sig.

Well right now i have about $500 to work with but more on the way and i dont know if i want to spend more than $1,500 anyways. And also the cars i want to beat are a T-Bird SuperCoup (not sure which year) 89 camaro Z28, and a 98 eclipse turbo. One of my best friends got the 35th anniversary camaro SS but i got no chance against him So yeah dont know if i can beat any of those cars listed with the price i gave you or even if i had more so thats it.

$500 will get you running with a couple of those. SC pulley, model an intake after one of many intakes here, hi-flow cat, and an aftermarket F-body muffler, and the chip with the 160 thermo you mentioned.

According to Jet, their chip won't work with a 92. You need the Hypertech.

Oh i did have a question. Ive seen things that say that you Have to have the exhaust and intake along with the T-Stat, is that true or would i be fine for a few days or weeks with the chip/stat. And also can anyone tell me by experience or reading how fast my car is compared to lets say a V6 mustang?

It won't hurt anything to run with the stock intake and exhaust. They recommend the upgrades to get the full potential out of the chip.
Your stock car is faster than a stock V6 Mustang. Until the 99, they only had 150 hp, now they have 190, so that would be close.
