no need for open headers. use the power you have. your mph is there for 12's just need to get the car to leave

probably not as much as you'd gain with a pair of sticky tires

if your going to run slicks, do you have sf connectors? torque box reinforcement? if not i'd hold on the slicks unless you wanna go for the pretzel look

you should be fine if you have subframe connectors welded and on. i dont think reinforcing your torque boxes is totally neccessary yet...are you planning on launching on nitrous?

with slicks, it absolutely is necessary, that is unless you like having to go back and do more work than you would have had to do to reinforce them in the first place.

an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
