Or maybe you could chuck the LS1 out, and get your self a decent engine, or at least an improvement, maybe a 1000cc 3 cyl by Dihatsu!!!:p :p :p

If you have 10k why are you spending it in three stages?

10k is blower area, and few can argue with forced induction.

What exactly do you want, to spend $10k or improve a area of your car, brakes, engine, diff, body, interior, suspension, wheels/tyres, sound or "other".

Is this for a Ford or a Holden, strifey..

Well

Put it this way,

10k will buy you 2345 shares in the Daily Planet, less for the leather clad rooms and the mistress.

Got to be more fun

If I had an XR8, for 10k I would twin turbo set-up (maybe nudging over 10k), or a mild blower setup as not much money would be left for the engine internals.

Hmm, call me "different", or something.. because I'd probably throw a few thou into brakes and suspension first, and with the rest do exhaust + headers, intake + chip, cam, porting. Would be a better all round package, able to turn and stop as well as going forwards swiftly :D

I couldn't bring myself to spend large amounts of money on the engine alone without doing anything to the brakes or suspension. :eek:

Saw a ED XR6 in the paper for 8K today. Now that could be the go. Alternatively 10K could see a cortina GT500 in nice nick if you were lucky. Or it could build a nice Mk1 escort race/rally car. Or it could turn an XP hardtop or a old fairlane into a really neat cruiser. hmm, decisions, decisions. To find out my choice, send $10, 000 to.....;)

Stage 1, add a blower, a better exhuast system and high performance filters etc...
Stage 2, revise suspension - bilsten shocks, stiffer springs and strut bracing for extra rigidity.
Stage 3, styling modifications - in my case it would be a more intergrated sporting look with skirts, bumpers, wheels, spoilers and interior modifications.

I think the above would almost top 10 grand. :p
