When are the next competitions? I'd like to go to a few.
Aside from the audio, have you shown your car at NOPI or any of the other car shows?

you sure that a stock probe engine will take a 200hp shot of nitrous? thats a pretty big shot. then again, i know nothing about probe bottom ends.

however, i would recomend what I am going to do when I put my car on the juice, go with a progressive boost system which matches the Nitrous shot to the throttle position. but even @ WOT i won't have a shot that big, and I may not have a stock bottom end, (engine came with an aftermarket stainless head gasket, and I don't feel like tearing it apart to see what was done)

i feel ya on the college thing, me 2.

the original plan was a 75 HP shot....u are right the 200 is pretty big, i have a friend who runs one to a 2.4 liter 4 cyl, probe....i swear to god he is gonna melt that damn motor....i have the v6 version 2.8 i think....still i dont want to cook it.

since i have the stainless head gasket already, i may add a 50-75 wet shot after i get an oil cooler, a larger oil pan, some better tires, and a little bit of dyno tuning.

That should get me just past the 500hp mark.

my turbos peak efficency is around 440hp.

400 sounds a bit high from a N/A 164 HP V6. even with a P&P and an angle job you would not get past 190. probably even less.

and after looking at this guys pages:
http://www.geocities.com/motorcity/5335/test.htm

i really would not recomend your power goals in a probe.
it would take a lot of money to upgrade your fuel system, valvetrain, and electronics to handle it.

and after doing all of that in my care, trust me, its a lot of time and money. and whatever you think its going to cost, multiply it times 2. as a reference, I have invested several thousands of dollars into my car to get it where it is mechanically. about 10 grand total. i bought the car for 4 of that.

thanks, thats nothing yet though. still need to finish glassing in the body kit and paint it.

another word of advice, if you only paid 500 for the car, don't put anything in it that you can't take out and put into another.
