Not too hard, nice heads, nice intake, CAI, Headers/mufflers, nice complete ignition system, some ppl say underdrive pulleys - although I didn't note a difference, that should bring your car close to 400 <U>IF</U> the engine is running properly and is nice and tight......Maybe 400....after that, it's just a matter of good combo, better injectors etc... </P>

7K in the suspension???? damn dude (spike), what can you possible have under there suspension=wise for that kind of money ???? Even the Griggs GR-40 PRO system which is the premium is not more than 6K... -- I'm not questioning you, but I'm really curious.</P>
