streetfocus Thanks, jugglethese. Mine runs a 10.2 in the 1/8th WITHOUT a header, so, yeah. Like yours though, mine loses steam on the high end or upper mph. I just might get the courage to tear into it with a book for help and give cams a try. We'll see.

replica81 The 3M stickers tend to dyno a little higher than ebay ones.

If you have at least 6 stickers stacked and they are evenly spaced and are of equal color...well, thats 35rwhp right there (yeah, I said RWHP).

Hope this helps.
that was pretty creative haha

jugglethese i got quoted on cams by my mechanic. its was 300$ just for the cam install. If you go stage 2 and have to get the spings and retainers its 500$.
His shop rate is 75$hour. hope that helps you guys out a bit :)
If you dont need you car for a weekend, its definatly something to learn. even buy that book that tell you how to take apart everything in you car(cant remember what its called)
and im sure if you came into problems someone here would be able to give you insight

I bought my car last year before winter so i havent even got it on a drag strip yet.
So i dont even know what these run down the 1/8th mile. but my fiends got a v6 tiburon he ran 10.1 and im now side by side with him when we race. still pulls me after 140km/h but 0-140km/h theres no difference.

Its petty cool that 1500$ on upgrades can bring our cars into another class of cars :)

I'm hoping I can get these installed for around $100 but might be dreaming!
