You have pretty much maxed out your free mods. You could bump the timing to 12-14 degrees, remove the front sway bar(I'd only do it for the track though), run a shorter belt and bypass the smog(Again I'd only do it at the track). You could also run some premium fuel and octane booster to eliminate any knocking or pinging(due to bumped up timing). But as you probably know, you have to pay to play!

yea my smog pump is already off. all my mods are in my sig. i run 93 octane only im my car. and yea i do know you have to pay to play. does anyone have any idea what i might run at the track? i am scared to take it because i had a 98 GT 5speed and the mods were CAI, O/R H-Pipe, dynomax bullet mufflers, stage III clutch, 4.10 gears, auburn pro series LS locker and i was running 9.30's in the 1/8th and 14.30's in the 1/4 on street tires with 20psi. i am afraid this car wont do it and it will hurt my feelings. what do you guys think?

where are you in al?

if you can't get under 9.30's with the **** you got now.....it's pointless to add anything else until you can drive it how it sits.
