Looks pretty good, Id choose a different cat-back though, I went with HKS, thats the only thing Id change.

your missing rods...and all the machine work to build up your block... and if you were doing that, you would want more aggressive cams, and a race header...and 2.5" flex and cat-back...

get ready to spend serious cash...thousands upon thousands

ps...your not including cost of all gaskets...bolts...i say arp. tack on another few hundred just from that

one last thing...many of the items you are listing will put you into the 14's....but for what your doing and the cash your spending, you could have another 20whp on other items to substitute for what is on your list....

Kickn, I know I'm skipping some of that stuff like the rods machine work etc. It's just a rough idea of what I am thinking of building my car up to.
Oh, and yeah, I know I forgot the LSD but I just didn't remember to put it on there and an H&R Cup Kit suspension would sound nice with all of that with a carbon fiber hood, some lighter 15 inch rims, short shifter, etc. I was just giving a rough list of the things I wanted to do and I wanted to see if you guys have any better brands I could use instead. Thanks for the responses though.

it will be cheaper with the mods he's doing than to build a completely dif motor and get it to fit and a tranny to mate up to it.

id ditch the pistions and rods and just mill the head, save some cash, shaving a little off the head can boost your compression also.

pick whatever exhaust u want, magnaflow will make just as much power as HKS. go with what u think looks good.
