Horsepower--go Baby Go

I HAVE A 1996 Z28 T-TOP WITH THE lt1 IN IT. I WAS JUST WONDERING WHAT I COULD DO TO IT ON A BUDGET TO GET THE MOST HORSEPOWER OU OF IT. WHAT BOLT-ONS ARE GOOD AND OTHER MODIFICATIONS WOULD GIVE ME THE MOST BANG FOR MY BUCK.

Best bolt on's????

~Prolly one of the best "BFB" (bang for buck) would be long tube headders.

~Cold Air Intake. This goes along with the "one of the best" BFB listed above.

~Mass Air Flow Sensor Ends

~Air Foil

~Throttle Body

~Y-Pipes.

~160 Degree Thermostat

~Underdrive Pullies

~some sort of custom tune or Hypertech programmer to re-program the computer for better everything. Contact Jamy @ LSracingchips.com and he will help you out. Thats who did my program for my 94 LT1 and he did a great job.

Try the free mods that gain minimal HP, but then again, free HP is better than none at all.

~One would be to relocate the IAT (intake air temp)

~Another would be to do the throttle body coolant bypass mod.

~De-screening the MAF sensor.

~Intake silencer delete

~Gutting the catalytic converter

~Eliminate the skip shift.

~Weight Loss - FREE!!! every 100 pounds less equals 1 tenth off of your ET.

Hope this helps man. Do a search over at some of the LT1 forums located all over the net and you will find lots of mods you can do to the LT1 mill. I have done most of the free mods and most of the $$$$ mods listed. They all seem to do fine, but I never drove it before the mods so I don't have a clue as to how much it helped.

Re: Horsepower--go Baby Go

Easiest, biggest horsepower gain is nitrous oxide in my opinion.

For an f-body...? Maybe it's just me, but I believe the only thing nos is for is to let Ricers stand a ghost of a chance against domestic cars. If you've got it, that's cool, but don't rely on it like everyone else does...

Can you name one bolt on that you can do that is easier, cheaper and provides as much horsepower?

Open up the exhaust and bolt on a supercharger, It will make it sound and run lethal!
