I put this thread up on another site and it was well received, so I thought I would put it up here as well. The topic comes up on what it takes to get a 4.0L into the performance of some V8 cars at the track. Mid 13’s with the potential to later go to 12’s is my baseline here. After learning from my mistakes and others mistakes, I think I have come up with a cost effective list of modifications to get there. Please respond with any corrections/inclusions. Engine • Power adder o Nitrous Race Setup w/Intake, Tune & Install: $2000.00 o Turbo Setup w/Intercooler, Tune & Install: $6000.00 o SC Setup w/Intercooler, Tune & Install: $5000.00 Suspension • LCA’s: $130 • UCA’s: $100 • Take off GT tire/wheel package (shipped): $450 Drivetrain • LSD & gears w/Install: $700 Exhaust • Single Bolt on Muffler: $300 Summary • 13 second Nitrous Rig on streets: $3680.00 • 13 second Turbo Rig on streets: $7680.00 • 13 second SC Rig on streets: $6680.00 Now, keep in mind that this is on street tires and assumes you have the base model V6. Those of you with the pony package can save $450 on these packages. Also keep in mind you will need a Snell 2005 Helmet@$250 for track events. Not all of these packages are created equal, with equal potential to 12’s and for some of you nuts, 11’s. But the purpose of this thread is to provide you a cheat sheet of what it will take to reach V8 track performance, and I have seen a lot of perceived “fast” V8’s at the track run low 13’s to mid 14’s. Some people may look at this list and want to trade in for a GT. LOL. But I wanted to show that now that people are getting these 4.0’s for a good price used or new, 13-20K, that an investment of 3-7K turns theses cars into real monsters!!! Also keep in mind that these poweradder kits come with tunes, and for those of you that want to do the install yourself and use the canned tunes, subtract $1K from them. So please provide any input and thoughts. I am working on an optional section of this cheat sheet that includes DS w/loop, shifters, more suspension goodies, tuning costs for upping the boost, places to get engines (LOL), DR’s, etc. But that will take a bit.
