Mod Help

I have a 2006 GT with a 70mm on 3 performance turbo charger running at 7psi, Roush axel back exhaust, and stock gears.

I am wanting to add FRPP hot rod cams and 3.73 gears. I am a daily driver that puts on average 40 miles a day on my car. Any pros vs. cons to this possible set up would be nice or any other mod suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Pros

Sound good
Pick up a bit of horsepower.
Quicker acceleration


Cons

Lose some gas mileage
Idle may be a bit less tame in traffic.
Adjust speedometer for gears, not a big deal.
Really need long tube headers and a better intake manifold to get the most from cams.
Also really need a dyno tune for all of this to run well with your turbo
1st gear may become especially useless depending on your power levels and tires


There may be some others that can give you more of each. What kind of power are you making? Are you able to run anymore boost with your current set up?

I am currently putting down 380 rwhp with 7psi. With the current setup I cant run too much boost because I am not wanting too much pressure on the engine and transmission. My next limiting spring for the turbo is a 15psi spring so that is a big jump in horsepower and would put to much strain on the engine with the stock heads, pistons, transmissions, and rear-end. I am not worried about the gas mileage I already get around 16 mpg driving around so that is no issue. Yeah I realize I will have to get a dyno tune I got a guy who did my tuning for my turbo and said he would cut me a deal since I am a returning customer. I am looking at upgrading my throttle body and intake manifold as well but am on a college budget so am doing it piece by piece. Thanks for the reply I am looking to do this over my Winter break in December with my Dad in the garage, then taking it to get tuned unless I come up with a different plan.

Sounds good, the reason I ask is you were able to run more boost was just because if you can, you can increase boost to whatever will get you to around 450rwhp and still feel good about your stock internals in the engine and driveline. Cost should be lower than cams, and rear gear. I have been running 452rwhp on a TVS 2.3 supercharger. Everything else stock. If you go the route of increased boost, your really won't need cams, intake manifold, headers. You will already be making as much safe power as you can. You can always put more gear in it no matter what your power level. On a budget that may be the cheapest way to make the most power, if that is your goal. It's been pretty well documented that with a good tune (and of course that is paramount) 450rwhp is considered safe for the 3v. On the other hand if you just want the sound of cams, there is no substitute.
