Question type: Car Customization

Where do I start to upgrade my TBird
in to get more HP? Cam, Exhaust,
Heads, Intake?

4 Answers


Most people start with a intake, headers and exhaust system to get better flow. If that's not enough, reflash the ECU. Get some stock numbers from a dyno so you know how much power you have added.

Ok cool thanks. I will start to look around for some headers.

How much HP you think I can get from the stock block? With out any power adders.

you goin' for the gaped open hood with chromium intake stacks making it look like a factory up there?
