the best mod you could ever do that will impress you more than anything is swapping to a 5 speed

Oh quit it, guys!

Okay, a manual swap would be cool, but if not, you can still get some kick out of her! I'd say upgrade the transmission and do a custom turbo.

Ok I got this one guys


1)3000 RPM stall + turbo = BAM blown tranny


2)3000 RPM stall + upgraded tranny + turbo = BAM blown
tranny (you forgot to use a tranny cooler)


3)3000 RPM stall + upgraded tranny + turbo + tranny cooler=
lower self esteem
because you just got past by a
turbo'd spi with manual transmission

the auto

Depends on how thrifty you are cost wise. My swap cost me about $400


If you are mechanically inclined, it's easy. If you are not, it's hard


www.car-parts.com is where to go to start your hunt. There are numerous threads with lists on what you need to do the swap as well.
