Your 04 already has the pi swap the pi swap is heads and intake from a 99-04 and putting it on a 96-98 if I'm wrong someone will chime in and correct me

You can upgrade to a trick flow setup and I can buy your old heads and intake for my 96 lol

Re: PI swap?

Yah the PI swap has basically been done already from the factory. As said you could P&P the heads to gain some hp.

Supposedly the gains from the Trickflow setup are real good but for the money I'd rather pick up a centri style charger and run low boost. Then rebuild the lower/top end after some catastrophic failure using stock internals lol.
