Suggestions?

So I've pretty much gotten my car done with appearance mods.. So I'm thinking its time to move onto the performance. Currently I only have a full cat back exhaust (Borla S Type). Here's a list of what I want.. Just don't know what order to purchase them in.

-SCT Tuner
-Mac Prochamber o/r H-pipe
-Upgraded TB/ Plenum
-Possibly a CAI
-Vortech V3 supercharger

Should have got the performance first!
Since you're going sc do all the bolt ons first and skip the handheld and get the custom tune for the vortech. Id get the midpipe first. Unless theres a large timeframe between getting the vortech and bolt ons.

Why would you not get the supercharger first? If I could go back that would if been the first thing I saved for instead of all the little things

He's going supercharger so cams would be completely pointless. Agree on the 4.10s disagree strongly on upper control arms as there have been other threads on here about.

Because all the other supporting mods make the supercharger work ridiculously better and able to put the power to the ground. Also bigger HP on the stock unmodified chassis/suspension is flat out dangerous.

Right but why not add the supporting mods afterwards? It's like getting with a girl wouldn't you rather just get the whole thing vs just the tip every other month? Haha and power comes with responsibility...can't handle it don't mess with it....don't get me wrong I get your points but if the op has the pair for more juice then supercharger first!!

Also will want to get another tune if you go sc first which'll be a waste of another $600

The only other mod that requires a tune would be his plenum...why not run the conservative tune they send with it? To me it would be more fun to have the power even though it will be less than a custom tune would produce but that's just me...then when he decides to do his plenum like in his list then he can go all out

Those are crappy tunes. And if he's getting other mods why not get those done first and tune once? I mean both are options but retuning when you dont need to is pretty dumb

See if he's like you then yes wait but if he rather have like 80 more hp at once then that's the only reason I say first..like I said had I gone that route I would if been happier then....all matter of opinion...but then again if he has cash then all at once!

I have an SCT tuner at home, I just have to pay to unlock it and re-program. Although I figured I would go mid-pipe first then tune. But then again, that delays saving up $1,500 for a Vortech. Also gears an expensive mod due to installation fees

80hp he will be very ineffective getting to the ground with stock gears, no subframes etc... Vorteched stock car will make around 350whp and lose in the 1/4 to a full bolt on car with 410s and that is fact. That is why you do bolt ons first.

Haha I don't necessarily want a show car. I did appearance mods just like 85% of everyone else.. I got it to sound and look the way I wanted and now moving onto the engine.

Do your bolt ons and then supercharge and tune. Then use up the life of the stock internals while saving money to forge and boost the piss out of er way more safely

Sounds good. Don't throw a tune on before the SC?

No need. You can if you want and it will help but you will have to retune when the blower goes on.

It shouldn't be hard to retune it after the SC
