Also got Tri ax Short Shifter and 4.10 gear.
What "Sinister07 " said was accurate, what he didn't add to that is: Because of that chnage you did, the Gears and the Tri-Ax shifter, is the reason you are going to feel a HUGE difference in your car. The Throttle body, is not the reason you will feel the difference you going to get. Enjoy it anyway, and it will feel like a totally different car. Watch the rear Tires.

Hello guys!

Now, im about to buy cams, x and headers.

Would like to hear your suggestions!

Till now, my package is:

Comp cams 127200
Bbk LT
BBK Shorty o/r x

---------- Post added at 07:33 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:32 AM ----------

By the way, the difference between ceramic coated and traditional is worthy?

The reason ceramic coated is better is because it helps keep the temperature underneath the hood down. I will buy ceramic coated headers when I buy mine

I lost highway MPG as well but picked up a few in the city since the engine labors less.

I have no problem with that
4.10s and no other mods, alone, will make you cheese!!

10 - 15 RWHP if on a S/C or Turbo vehicle. Or, a highly modified (heads for example) N/A engine. Otherwise, you will see 0 to 5 RWHP. Such a small amount that a heat soaked run would negate it's gains.

Also, RWHP is NOT collective. You do not get 20 from this, and 40 from that usually. You get a slightly lower sum than the combined gains advertised. With a great tune & CAI you may see 20-30WHP realistically with higher gains being possible simply on that dyno, that day. 4.10s allow you to utilize your power more efficiently. The 4.10s combined with a 93 race tune and CAI will transform the car into what seems like a completely different car.

I have said that soo many times, to people (Not quite stated the same way), but they just don't hear, soo many times they want to swear to you to buy this or that Throtle or these Injectors or these UD Pulleys and you'll have a Billion HP. The shop that I deal with, I trust totally and they tell me Honestly what makes a difference, and what's just spending money for nothing, they also tell me what makes what difference with what! Ex. There are things that make a big difference with Modified Engines SC,NOS,Cams etc. But those same things on a N/A Engine will do nothing.

I attribute this to people everywhere, online, in real life or otherwise, only "listening" to what they want to hear. In a car forum, people want numbers.

Dynos are only relatively accurate if you continue to take your car to the same dyno to have a baseline and see gains on THAT dyno. The only consistent measure of increased power is E.T.'s. You run 15.0, add an exhaust run a 14.7, then you know that it helped, assuming the rest of your slip was consistent enough to show a true difference.

People want to justify their expensive card mods with numbers and placebo effects.

Another thing to keep in mind is hp does not always equate to speed... U can have a 300hp mustang against another 300hp mustang ... Same years and everything but if one of the stangs is running a blue print and balanced motor that has been tuned to perfection it will walk the other... Just an example
