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 :)

u really dont need forged internals for a 50 shot. all bolts on plus 50 shot should be able to get u mid to upper 14s. PLus get a tune.

I'm running 14's NA @ 164 whp, so a 60 shot will put you in to the 14's. but not a 14.0, you would need around a 125 shot or so on a motor w/ stock hp ratings. and you can't do that on stock internals!! well, maybe w/ a 4 stage progressive shot, but still, not likely. only turbo or sc and maybe a lil spray w/ it!!

there are a few people on here that run 75 shots consistantly w/o any engine problems(prolly tuned tho), beyond that u will need some internals. But the tranny wont hold up for too long esp with and auto. There are a bunch of people im one that have turbos with stock internals. My turbo yeilds 75 whp or more and my engine runs great, howver my auto trans is shittin the bed, lol.
