the modifications i have done to my car are in my signature, wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what to add next? maybe 4.10 gears or a dyno tune, anything else?:thumbsup:

I'd sugest gears, 4.10 minimum for the high reving mod motors.

My first question would be is your car used for daily driving or do you just use it for the track and cruising?

But if it was me I would do a 3.55 or 3.73 gears and then save up for a supercharger.... :thumbsup:

I would agree with the 373's and a aluminum driveshaft because you will need it. If your going to plan on supercharging it I would go with the 355's

it's a daily driver i guess, i dont drive it that much, about 4 times a week. It will be awhile before i supercharge it, perhaps a year or so. So do you think 4.10's will be too much? what gears do you recommend?

4:10's are great for short burst of speed, Mod Motors like to rev and the 410's help out alot. The back draw to 410's is they suck for fuel mileage, the "whine" when driving, I don't care who sets up the gear, They'll "whine" a small bit. For supercharger applications, 3:55's are the route to go, If no Supercharger is in the future 4:10's will get that beast off the line hard!!!!! With the Extra Torque that you have with the headers and exhaust, the 4:10's would be Ideal for Straight line racing, but not for auto crossing.

All in all, it's up to you.
Of course you can always benefit from a good Dyno Tune!

Best thing I've ever done to my '99 was installing 4.10's. Fuel mileage in city has dropped to 16-17mpg...highway is around 22mpg. Of course I'm only a "red-light-racer" and "Ella" doesn't get taken out of the garage usually more then twice a month so fuel consumption is not a concern.
