Don't really know what your goals are but a power adder is the way to go if you want to drive a car a lot. IMO

Never in favor of power adders, still like it all natural. Shows what a guy can really do to achieve his goals.

I hear you but a Turbo was the only way I could achieve my goals, to run a 2.50 gear, a nice tight converter, a small cam, get 15+ mpg, drive it all over and still run 8's.
Far to often in the quest for speed people take a very nice and driveable street car and make all the mods, big cam which kills the bottom end, so they put in a high stall converter, then to make use of all the high rpm's they throw in a nice deep gear.
Yep, go's faster and sounds awesome also sucks gas, revs to the moon on the highway and spends way to much time in the garage because its a race car.
Not trying to be a ass, sounds like your car is very nice as is and is hauling with the parts that are in it, throw a 75-125HP shot on it and it will run well into the 12's and the car doesn't change one bit the rest of the time.
