I would look around for a Good Clutch or Racing Clutch for that matter. You'll definitely feel the Difference.


Upgrading all depends how much Cash you're willing to spend.

nitrous will be a good bang for your buck mod. turbo charging it will also be good, but isn't the greatest for a stock engine. If you dont want to spend a lot of money the z6 can be make stock b16 power with bolt ons and tuning. but it would still be pretty slow.

In the end if you want it to go fast you're gonna have to invest a decent chunk of change.

that system is almost to expensive for the gain it gives you, and yes you have to mod you engine A LOT for that to work correctly, it's almost not even worth it. I've seen it on a friends 5.0 mustang and it took him a year of tuning/building to get it to run right and rn good, and it STILL has its problems....

Not worth it IMO

That would do jack sh!t for him. His engine is stock. There's absolutely ZERO reason to upgrade the fuel or ignition systems at this point...

really you think it would be better to slap nitrous in it ??????
the ignition is allways a good upgrade better spark means more horsepower and better throttle response.
Clutch deffinately a good idea tho!!!!!!

plugs wires and external coil, maybe forced air intake ,fuel rail, fuel pressure regulator,the rest of your exhaust?,an adjustable cam gear. all of these are pretty cheap and a good upgrade.
or you could just slap a turbo on it for about 900 bucks, or spray with some nitrous for about a grand. then blow up your engine for that thousand dollars but i guess you would go fast for a second ha.
correct me if im wrong im sure someone will
