Gaining horsepower through bolt ons

Just curious if it is possible to beat the 4th generation GTs with some bolt ons and a little more? I have the screaming demon coil pack and CAI. I plan on adding pypes mid muffler true dual exhaust, rebuilding the rear end with an auburn LSD and 3.73 gears, 70mm throttle body, and a spec stage 2 clutch with aluminum flywheel. I know I would need about 260hp. Is there anything else not on this list, other than FI, that would add some good hp, or torque?

Tune would help greatly. You would beat and untuned Automatic GT, those are slow as ****

Yeah tune would squeeze every hp out of those bolt ons and you should be neck and neck with a GT. Long tube headers and a cam would wrap it all up and the only thing left would be a turbo or supercharger.

Would a bama tuner do the trick?

Yes sir. A 93 octane race tune would get you a great amount of hp from them

What do you think about the rear end? Rebuild it, just change the gears, or swap it out? I'm a high school student so best best price to performance ratio please

Check craigslist in your area. If there are lots of 8.8s cheap for like 200-300 buy it and put gears in it. In my area there arent any so I rebuilt my 7.5 (t lok and 4.10s)

Would I be able to use my own axles and brakes if I swapped?

Yes sirr, a 99-04 gt is the same exact length and bolts up. A 94-98 gt is .75 inches shorter on each side but bolts as well

I have hung with an automatic 4.6 multiple times, but their torque always wins in third gear. But the automatic shift points really do suck

The stock 05 automatic GT goes 0-60 in 5.2 seconds. Not sure what year car the OP has, but I know that the 99 manual GT goes 0-60 in 5.4. They're almost neck and neck even when the 1999 is stock. Throw some gears, headers, a tune, good tires, and CAI on that 1999 and do you want to bet me money on the race?

Well seeing as this is the Pre 05 V6 section a 3V GT vs 2V GT race is kind of a moot point. Mazen is saying a tuned 99-04 V6 will keep up with a Stock 99-04 GT

With gears your torque will be multiplied further. Almost makes your 3rd gear pull like your stock 2nd gear. Not exactly but really with 4.10s my 1st gear has just a stupid amount of torque, 2nd pulls like my stock 1st, and 3rd feels like my old 2nd. The automatic shift points and shift firmness stock are a joke. With a nice tune your 1-2 shift will jump you up literally 8mph on the speedo thanks to shift firmness. And 2-3 shift around 5. It makes a big difference and you the whole car just explodes when it shifts on redline

Shift firmness won't be a problem, I managed to find a manual sixxer I wish there was a way for me to feel the difference between the 4.10s and the 3.73s. I don't know if the gas mileage with the 4.10s is worth it. I do most of my driving city, but whenever my family goes to the lake I sometimes have to highway drive for about an hour, that's the most though. Round trip uses half a tank, it's ridiculous

If you have a manual you have a 5th gear, which gives you much lower RPMs than my 4speed. Really dude the 4.10s wont be too big of deal with yours. The acceleration they give is just amazing
