Theres only ONE answer. A turbo kit. Since you have a auto you'll have to look at lentec i believe its spelled to beef up your trans.

$$$$....with a decent turbo kit, 14.0s are pretty easy. but it requires money and dedication. Your also limited by the transmission and your gonna have to upgrade it.

If your going to go nos your going to have to do some internal work to hold a big enough shot safely, you may have to do work to the SC to get those times, and if you go trubo well.. Just turn the boost up if need be. What i mean is a turbo is the best bang for your dollar.

ALWAYS TUNE lol, i would recomend nitrous

People that mention nitrous get flamed alot by ingnorant people that no nothing about nitrous and say "your going to blow up!"

nitrous is not flamable!

Get a compression test before you do any heavy modding

I'm selling a 10 pound nitrous NX tank from my old set up if you want one cheap :)
