New 2000 GT, few questions

Hello
My friend just purchased a 2000 gt. I was wondering, what are the best modifications to do? Sorry but I have no experience with these cars. He already has exhaust and pulley's.

Also, what kind of times can he expect at 5600 ft? When I was there last year it seams most new gt's were running mid 15's and new cobra's high 14's (altitude sucks). How do you guys launch?
Thanks!

I get wet then do a medium burnout in 1st gear (3-5 seconds or until the tail starts walking left).

Then stage and hold it at 2,000rpms.

When the last yellow lights, I let the clutch out quickly and mash the gas.

Remember I have good torque and 4.10 gears, so this technique won't work for a stock car.

thoes are good bolt ons, but power adders are where you get your big gains.
PS I have yet to see a GT run a 106mph trap speed with your mods nomore4bangers. I would love a match up to see if it would run that here. With 8psi boost I ran a best of 105mph, now I run in the 110+ mph range.
