Stock 2V tuned

What do you guys think about a stock 2V with a CAI and mufflers with a tune? I really want to get more power and don't have much money for big parts yet. Would a tune really make a difference?

Yes a tune makes a huge difference. Just get a GOOD tune. CAI doesn't do much, and mufflers don't do anything except sound better.

I am basically in the same boat. I have full magma flow exhaust, off-road x, bbk short tuned headers, cai. Got the bama tuner from am as well, and I believe it makes a difference. Haven't ran the 91 tune yet just 87 performance and street. Seems to work well, although i would love to see some actual figures on a dyno. I think a tuner is a solid investment, my next mod will probably be gears 😆

Personally I would do a Tune and O/R Mid pipe!.. That will net better gains!.. But the Tuner itself is the Key!..

Yeah I've been thinking LT headers, gears, throttle and tune should be good

For a 2V


-Mid Pipe
-Catback
-Shifter or J-Mod
-Gears
-Tune


Then get to work on suspension. TB and Plenum are the only other things you might want to do if you are feeling really froggy and have $250 laying around. CAI is appearance only and pullies do almost nothing. The stock exhaust manifolds are actually not restrictive either.


Too many 4.6L cars out there with a zillion bolt ons and half do nothing except "bling factor" on stock suspension and can't hook up or go around a corner to save their lives. Also the stock front wheel gap in the 94-04 cars is absolutely ridiculous looking.

Just going to throw this out too, because seems nobody else has!.. Brakes!.. Even doing nothing more than a set of Steal Braided Brake lines!.. That alone will improve "performance", that you can feel!.. But will also add a bit more Peace Of Mind!..

One thing to not forget about. If you can feel the ABS kick in you already have enough braking power. The tire is extremely important in your braking capability.

That is true!.. But considering how you plan on hitting the brakes harder now, personally I would just go ahead and replace the lines now!.. Vs needing to replace them due to failure later!.. Know what I'm saying?.. Better safe than sorry!..

I'm deleting my ABS most likely. Just getting the delete block and pulling that stupid giant thing out of my engine bay. Then just pull the bulb out of the cluster and go.

+1 ^^ because if I'm not mistaken ABS stops you faster then non abs brakes.

Tracking the car, going around corners, wanting a firmer pedal feel, going to manual brakes, wanting a cleaner engine bay etc...

Not necessarily. Someone who can brake a non ABS car to the limit without locking them will brake quicker than someone with ABS. Remember ABS just engages and disengages the brakes. So if you are able to push it to 99% it will be a constant brake. This is where the tire comes into play. On a street car with street tires it is way too easy to lock them. I did that in my truck on the highway. But say a car with 335 slicks on all 4 corners, you can mash the brake pedal and come to a dead stop with no flutter.

I'm personally keeping my ABS.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Yeah as long as the tire does not slide because static friction of the tire with grip on the road is always greater then kinetic if friction of the tire skidding. So yeah if you can push it to 99% without sliding that would be the fastest buts that's essentially what abs brakes do anyway. Either way I'll be keeping my abs but definitely no shots at anyone who opts out. Cleaner the engine bay the better, As well as personal preference to break peddle feel.
