    I want to put a carb on my 2.3 88, if possible, and I want a flowmaster exhaust, with an aftermarket header as well. I don't really want to get into the tech stuff (porting), but I would like to give my car a little more horsepower than what it has now, and then later swap in a T-5, as I've simply decided to go N/A for a while. So, what parts could I use, any suggestions and part numbers or sources would be nice, except for the obvious, "Put a Turbo Motor in it" because I dont want to do that. I've looked and the pickins are slim. Help me :shrug:

    take a look at my sig for ideas. I put down some good #'s without porting.
    I find EFI to be easier to play with, because that is what I have grown up with, but if you know about the carb, use it.

    Where did you get your header from?

    Either run with the stock computer management, or go carbed and std distributer and bail the computer. Either route will need manifold work to realize major gains.

    I bought it from www.racerwalsh.com
    It is a actually the pacesetter header, and you will have to add your own O2 sensor bung.
