Got the CAI installed, 2.60 pulley and dyno tune. I already had high flow cats and axle back installed.

...i wouldn't hit any boost until you get a tune from someone who knows what they're doing. Either your motor is seriously f'd or your "tuner" is a five year old.

I'm thinking his tune is a bit old because I brought this issue up with him and he said all the other Shelby's he's been working on makes the same power. My point was I was making more horse power with out the pulley and that kind of CAI. I don't get it. My friend from SC told me he talked to his tuner about my tunes and he said I should be making 550-560

Sounds like a canned tune. Might as well get an email tune from bama at that point...i'd definitely find a new tuner

U can figure every extra pound of boost should be around 10hp. The JLT I put on said between 70-90 rwhp. U should at least be laying down what ur friend said. What is the factory size of the SC pulley?

It required a tune. Lol. It's from the combination of cai and tune.

U sure u were at 7? My factory was at 9 according to the factory gauge. I know they can be off sometimes but with my 2.50, I have hit 14 on that gauge.

Yeah, when I bought my pulley it was rated at 2 more lbs than a 2.59 but still. I would def get somebody else to look at it. What kills me is every time u do that it costs. At least with BAMA, u get good gains and get it free for life. I know they're not as good as a dyno tune but If I paid somebody to do it and they stunk, I'd punch them in the eye lol.
