    are you lifted? If not I'd get Bilstein 5100s for the front to get rid of the rake :)

    any power increase, either fresh air being rammed within or assistance with the exhaust flow, aka Cherry Bomb Vortec. Here is the flow chart link for the Vortec:
    I guess it's a Vortex, not Vortec:
    http://www.cherrybomb.com/products/

    Anyway, that's the flow chart on it, pretty cool it's almost as flow friendly as straight 3" pipe. It has increased my hp in my Caprice, so much so, that I had a friend of mine in the car ( he builds and races in the limited late model series, and used to work with an old winston cup team ) and he thought I had better than stock 2.93 gears in it. I haven't dyno'd it, but I am certain I got at least 15 - 20 hp more out of my LT1 in my Caprice wagon. I was thinking of doubling up and putting 2 back to back on my 4 banger Taco ( doubled up to squelch volume and take up space of the monster circular muffler that comes stock.
