    Small, dude u punched it out and u must have a ton of torque now...

    I would go for a sc if u have money to burn on tires. If u want more umph and controllable upgrade to l92 ported heads and 102 intake...

    I am punchin my tahoe to a 404 and slappin a sc on top soon. My biggest fear is ruinin the tranny

    What kind of power are you making right now? What cam are you running?

    I would say your next mod should be an 8.8, lol

    As far as power the dyno numbers came out around 500 but the owner said his dyno was a little more stingy compared to others.

    HAMSTAR's got a point. Either before or after the FI install, you'll probably need to address things back there.

    Add a snow max mpg meth injection, and swap your top end for less than 4 large.

    You will see an easy 70+ hp and no need to swap ur rear end out...

    Na are easier on the powertrain vs fi

    Huh?

    400 rwhp = 400 rwhp regardless of how it's produced.

    You'll spend a fortune on a blower setup for your stroker. In all honesty, I'd put my money into a Nitrous system with a high quality progressive controller. You won't be able to match the price or performance of a 200 shot controlled progressively.

    Fi shocks the drivetrain from start to finish, Na is a bit more mellow givin the drivetrain time to flex and give so it doesnt break...

    Look at the power curves, very self explanatory

    400 rwHp with supercharger or nitrous is harder on the drivetrain than turbos because of of the power comes on. Turbos are the slowest to build the power out of those three and therefore have less spike loads on the rods and drivetrain.

    For the money and the punch I agree on a nitrous setup, skys the limit with it as well you could do a small shot or a nice progressive system which will just be insane on

    I would def like to address the rear, im just a little hesitant cuz the prior owner had told me there were some upgrades to it but couldnt give me a list of what all was done to the drivetrain. i can see the bracket to reinforce it and it still has IRS but other than that i don't much about it. Nitrous could be a good choice, i had A Z06 before this car and did a Harris works plate setup with that so i wanted to try something different. Plus i dont like having to fill up the bottle .ha. Thanks for all the input though.. Any other Vs in the Fayetteville area?

    Stick a 2.3L blower off a LS9 on it, call it good. You could probably find one for relatively cheap over at the LS1-Tech classifieds.

    And by call it good, I of course mean, grenade your differential and snap your driveshaft, but at least the engine would be freaking killer.
