Re: Raced a VR SS auto today...
yes mate its easy...with the right stuff.
do you have a manual? what is your diff ratio?
get one of turbotranas EMS harnesses and an 8860 (or whatever it is) or a MAF sensor setup from XR9UTE (its a little more expencive, but has its benifits), then get your cam reground nice and lumpy, along with a proper exhaust.
if you want to after that, convert to the broad band manifold (like on EF onwards) which should help a fair bit too.
with a cam, computer and exhaust you should do well, even if you have an auto and a pov diff (like a 3.08) because you have an aftermarket computer you can get a much bigger cam than the stock comp will allow, and hence make more hp. the manifold will help as well.
if cam chip and zorst isnt enough, get a shorter diff (like a 3.7 LSD) and a slightly higher stall converter, one thats about 500rpm higher than stock.
the aftermarket computer (whichever you choose) has a secondary benifit, in that if you ever do get the cash to get a turbo or supercharger all you have to do is upgrade the fuel system, get whichever boosting apparatus you desire, get it plumbed in, and then reprogram to suit :s6:
i think 2k should get you a cam, computer (the 8860) and BBM, and you should have a very decently quick car.
