There are very few kits you can buy and run safely, they all need a fair amount of tuning and time on the dyno.

Sorry to say but $ 3000 will not cut it.

Your best bet would be to get all the bolt ons and maybe a nitrous kit. That would get you to your goal.

yeah, I don't think three dollars would cut it for a turbo, maybe if you make it out of cardboard. lol, j/k, I know you mean 3000, but even with that focal is right, go for bolt ons or put your 3000 bucks into the stock market and hope for the best.

hmmm
bolt-ons are the way to go if you can't afford FI. If you were to find a FI kit you won't be in the 13s. You might be in the mid 14s if you spend your money on bolt-ons. I believe Focaltech has a bunch of bolt-ons. send Focaltech a PM. Better yet, send him three; one from you and two from me.

Isnt Toms new kit only $2500? Or is it still not ready? If I had that money, I'd probably prepare for the turbo...engine build, brake upgrade, etc. I know you probably dont wanna wait for the turbo, and I know this cause I dont wanna wait to get a turbo setup either, but the way I see it is that it'll be better in the long run.
