Hey, I just had a quick question for you all. I have a '99 Cobra that has the basic bolt-ons like Flowmaster xpipe and cat-back, K&N CAI and well thats just about it. I also have 20" Foose Rims that add some weight but Im not loosen thos ;) so that leaves me with a stock heavy car that seems to be a bit sluggish. I have $650 and was wondering what would be the most effective mod that I could do to get me up and going. Im looking for some big acceleration if I can get it. lol I cant even beat this '97 Camaro that I no. Any suggestions? :D

welcome to the forums.

Gears would be your friend right now.
I was thinkin about puttin 4.10's in but idk how much thats gonna incress my 1/4mile, plus I think im gettin that done this summer when the engine goes though its stroked/forged overhaul to a 5.0 so I can TT it, but for now is there anything else I could do (besides nitrous)

check out our forums and read up man.

you have very little mods.

each mod works with another to cut your 1320 down

its not neccesarily the weight, its the height of them, it would be like putting a even lower set of gears in it. putting 4.10's in it might be the equivelent of stock with those monsters on it. i would worry about that before the added weight and rotational mass

The $2,000 it would take for the steeda 18"s lol. I would if I could sell the ones that I got since tha steeda rims look perdy damn nice to
why not just get something cheaper? steeda rims are ugly IMO.

get some 17's.

If you're going to TT the car this summer then don't go over 4.10. Get the gears and a tuner. A shifter, although it won't help with performance, will help your times on the track.
