second one is better then the first but the third would make more power if your head gaskets would hold post 10psi. I run 10 with tfs intake, tfs stage 1 cam, tfs springs and the rest stock with a t64e turbo and put down 403 to the wheels on 93 octane and a conservative tune with a pms. Stock heads/gaskets are holding me back but the car gets driven allot and isn't one purpose so that ****'s gotta wait.

id go with the second one. depending on which pistons you use, you can easily slap on a turbo and make 600-700. but then again your looking at block strength problems and so on. just go turbo, cheaper, better gas milage. depending on compression of the second build just all around more streetable

I'm looking to have a low 12's/high 11's in the 1/4 mile. Seems possible with a all combos on the N/A combos with a 100 seems more than likely it can happen with some driving skill.

2nd or 3rd. 3rd would provide the most growth with forced induction being first. H/c/i does alot once your already boosted. If you do, do that, add some fresh valvesprings into the picture so things don't get sloppy. I didn't with pheads and the car got slower and slower over time.

exhaust , gears and nitrous alone will get you low 12s assuming you have a tire and some driving skill

I have decided, build my foundation. I will do Bolt on's and suspension. Get into the 12's and then later on get a H/C/I setup.
Very good plan. When you do decide to do the H/C/I set up, the #2 option would be a very good choice. The trick flows are a great out of the box head and there is a lot of room to grow with them. In the hands of the right porter/shop have the potential to get you well into the 9s, or even 8s ( of coarse, with a matched combonation and car that is set up to go that quick)
