My thoughts on my new SCT Tuner and CAI
Well I got everything installed. I had heard some people mention that they had noticed a change in the sound of their exhaust with a cai, or tuner, or both. Well mine sounds exactly the same execpt that stupid whistle that I hate so much from the CAI.
I don't like the $75 CAI from american muscle, it feels cheap, and was a bit of a pain to get in. Only took about 10 minutes though. I wouldn't buy another one, I really should have spent more on the K&N. I still may buy one and throw this thing on eBay. I can't in good faith recommend it to anyone, but that's just me...
I was already empty so I filled her up with 93 and decided to test out my 93 race tune. Only took a couple minutes to get the tune loaded. Started her up, and went for a drive. She sounds and drives the same when just cruising, but there is a big difference when you get into the gas. I wasn't expecting as much as I got out of everything. She does pull harder and that speedo climbs a bit quicker now. My butt dyno is pleased! Mike at punchit performance did a great job with the tune. So with the intake and exhaust paired with the tuner I am happy with the results and I feel it was money well spent. I do think that guys with an auto will get a little more out of it, but still worth the investment for the 5-speed guys.
Going to go wash her now and get some pictures taken, will post em in a bit...
So so far she has the following work done/toys bought since I got it:
Respray factory mineral grey
LED third brake light
17x9 Anthrocite Bullitts
2" Drop zone springs
Mach 1 Grille delete
Drilled and slotted rotors
New cooling system
American Muscle Cold Air Intake
True Duals with cats, custom H pipe, and two flowmaster 40's dumped before the rear axle
Door grips painted mineral grey
SCT Tuner with 93 Race tune
Seatbelt holders from a 94
Plastidip fender stripes
I think that's everything so far
