Lightbulb What Performance Mods?

Hello, I am new to the Lightning world as of last night. I picked up a black 93' with 80,000 for $5,000. Some deal. huh... Anyways, I was wondering what times other members had run at the track with a stone stock setup. I was planning on putting a set of underdrive pulleys, a shift kit, and some type of better flowing exhaust in the near future. WoW... big suprise, it has a k&n filter already, too. If other members that have already done these mods would share their gains and/or horror stories, it would be appreciated.
P.S. I am looking at a new set of street tires. Any recommendations ?

Damn, and I thought I got a good deal @ $6000 for mine. The only thing mine has done to it so far is a K&N, Flowmasters, and a really hard hitting shift kit. I like it, but plan on doing full exhaust swap and maybe some head work and better throttle body. It just doesn't have very good throttle response at all !! I'm also going to lower it 1.5" in the front and 2" in the back, with some '99-00 L wheels.

I got mine from a 15.7 bone stock toa 14.4 by putting an exhaust, pulleys, R.Rockers, T/W heads and a K&N. Dropped a second and 3 tenths. I then did a MAF concersion and put in a 51014 Lunati cam. It slowed down drastically. I think a stall will get me where I want to be. I lost too much low end torque. I would do all I've done minus the big cam and put a TNT 125 kit on it. Should be easy 13.6 on radials. Already handles better than any truck has the right to.
