3:73's most def.... and besides power get that vert tighten up a bit, get XL Subframe Connectors from Maximum Motorsports will most def. feel a really big difference... 141,000 isn't anything for a 5.0

no I would not buy a cam yet, and like you said you dont want to get heads or anything wait until you get the heads and intake then get the right cam for that setup whenever you choice to do it... gears are the best bang for the buck trust me and get subframe connectors our cars flex soooo much , the car will feel extremely different with them... So much better...

If I were you altough my name is Tony too, I would get sub frame connectors and a cold air intake. He's right, your vert will flex more than one of my x girlfriends so you do want to stiffen the chassis up. Cold-air intake and maybe a fidanza shrt shifter if you have 5 speed. If no 5 speed then get a sterring wheel. Nothing sets your interior good like a steering wheel for starters.

look around for someone that puts in real subframe connectors where they cut the floorboard and weld in a peice of 2x3 steel tubing that runs the the full floorboard then button it all back up... there is a guy here that does it for 200

Hmm, moddedmustangs site, Trans am poster... pretty but edit your profile to show a ford or something and replace that LS1 name with something along the matter of 50HO or something... I'm messin around, I'm no bully but that's a long time in a long while I've seen someone post about something for ford and having a chevy or honda name on here and in this case, a Pontang trans am name.. I mean Pontiac.
