camshaft prices vary...go to wade cams or crow cams website...muffler job..bout 100 buks, shave the head, if you take in the head yourself might cost 250

dont bother getting yourself extractors and exhaust system if you not goin to raise compression and change the cam, if you do, you might not even notice a difference

extractors and exhaust definately yeild improvement...dunno what that dude is on about

10rwkw maybe depending on pipes? Then its your normal intake, camshaft compression, timing mods blah blah blah and so on and so forth

It depends on how much you are willing to spend on this car, how much knowledge you have and what you want to use the car for. If you want her just to look and sound good, paint her, dump her, new rims and exhaust is simple enough and cheap enough especially if you can fit the parts and paint her yourself. If you want a beast under the bonnet you can do everything from as much as an easy small turbo upgrade kit to a full engine rebuild or replacement. It just depends what you want it for, what you can do yourself and how much your willing to spend. :mrgreen:
