Hello,
Considering I am on a tight budjet I have the following questions:
Exhaust- I would not like to buy a cat back exhaust system for my 86 GT:
I am not sure where the biggest bottle neck is on a stock 86 GT?
With that in mind, I was thinking about a muffler dump or a electronic dump pipe. I do not mind the loud sound so with that in mind, what options would be the best?
Headers- are the stock headers very restrictive? Could I hold of on the aftermarket headers (assuming they are not that big of a gain)? What headers are the best to use on my 86 (if I go that route)?

TIA
Jeff

The 86 already had tubular manifolds / headers and true dual exhaust. On a stock engine I don't think you'd see much gain unless you replaced it with a 2.5" system. Aside from that, heads would be the best bet for cheap power; GT40's would help a lot.

Have you done anything to the suspension

I agree with the heads for sure... All I have is the traction bars, but I am sure I need more.

Thanks!
