go on ebay and buy the MAC underdrive pulley kit. some guy from Batavia, NY sells it for $65 which is a great price. Youll need to buy a $30 belt once the pulleys come in just to warn you. Remove your air silencer definitley! Go to google and type in "REmove air silencer thunderbird" and SCCoA has a page where they tell u how to do it and hwat bolts u need and stuff. Then get some Bosch plat +4 plugs off ebay along with 8mm plug wires- i got 6 of each for like 15 bucks on ebay! Then get a chip. All of this will be like 350 bucks. Also, try to lose some weight by taking out the back seats, and all the foam junk in the trunk and stuff. Then if thats not enough, get a SC. Some ricers are fast man. Especially with a manual transmission. I have like a 50-50 chance every race, because some are just posers and u could beat em walking- and some are actually runnin 13 second quarter miles.
