See the thread "Racing" just below this one and follow that. The MSD ignition is not what you need first. just do a tune up with Ford parts, especially the Motor Craft plug wires.

------------------
88 TC X 2, 86 SVO, Main TC with K&N, 3"DP to 2.5"duals through Dynamax, Ric valve at 17+ and disconnected KS.
Elite Bodega 16" chrome wheels. Autometer pod w/ A/F and Vac/boost gauges. New engine shortly, ported head and
manifolds, polished and cc'd chambers, A-230 cam, Race Engineering Adj Cam Sprocket, Crowlers, ARP head studs, Walbro 190 pump and T-3 for starters. KB subs
and jack rails.

What type of horsepower you want to get.

For Starters turn up the boost. Cheap

Run a straight throught muffler dynomax ultra flow. Better yet get a 3" downpipe and 3" cat with a 3" ultraflow.

Clean your IC and make sure its in good shape.

Run a bigger IC, swap cams, Bigger turbo, Ported exhaust,

Theres tons of stuff you can do, but it depends on what you want to get and what you want to spend.


------------------
88 TC Auto, 3" exhaust, with 3" flowmaster. Gutted Cat KN cone gillis boost custom spoiler
Comming Soon 3" Downpipe Air water IC a t5 swap, Ground effects

87 TC 5spd, stock, Comming soon glasspacks, and a bleeder set at 18 psi
