You would be looking at a full built engine , good header , intake , maybe manifold , Lentech full built trans and about a 200-250 shot , progressive would be easier on tire spin and parts

Either way you go Nitrous or turbo to run 12`s will need a built engine and trans

Like he said, full built motor, forged internals, etc.

or maybe...


you can ask Tom if he has an engine laying around he might want to sell ya.

For now, get the tank, lines, tps switch, fuel safety switch, hi flo valve for bottle neck, a simple progressive controller will work for under 150 shot or a window switch for under 100 shot, and a decent purge kit.

Seriously you should check with WON in regards to the solenoids and progressive system, I wont be buying an american made brand like NX or ZEX until they step up the game on their equipment some.


You can spray while you mod so its one of the easiest ways to strap on HP and be able to grow with the car. And remember, 10's are REALLY friggin fast in any car. If you've never been in a 10 second car on a balls out run I would suggest finding one before you go for this goal. I have seen grown men pee themselves in my buddies 9 second wheel standing Nova when we test her behind the shop. And by pee, I dont mean a lil tinkle
