Power

Hey guys I was wondering if there's anyway to get more power out of our sixers without adding a turbo or supercharger and I already had a CAI and a tune

Don't forget nitrous!

All motor you're going to need ported heads and an aftermarket camshaft to see significant gains. Otherwise, boost is the best option!

depends what you want out of the car...i've seen N/A setups run the same amount in the end as a starter F/I setup that puts out alot more power.

then don't spend any more money on power mods...buy some nice wheels, lower it, and call it a day. save for the mods for the GT since it'll be a whole lot more fun

That, and maybe a CAI and Nice set of spark plug wires, that will give it more throttle response

1slosix has some good advice. It's really not worth spending the cash on power upgrades if you plan on switching to a GT soon. I would pick out a nice set of wheels and tires that you can easily switch over to the future GT. Just make sure to keep the v6 stockers!

Rear diff gears do give more hp n torque... How would u not have more hp if u where to increase ur gear ratio, 4.10 r best for autos..n e one agree or disagree if not true than I was misinformed....

the torque to the tires has changed, yes. But the engines power, no.

Correct, It does increase overall performance, but does not increase bhp.

Yes, gears have nothing to do with the engine. Well not completely. They just help you accelerate faster

Not a power adder but the short shifter is a great mod.
