Help with 500

So have vortech, off road pipes , outlaws, and all my appearance things I have 500 to spend. To be honest I have no issues with stock shifter . If I were to buy Uca and Lca what what I need ?
1 Uca Lca relocation brackets
2 pillar with boost gauge and afr gauge
3 cai and boost a pump

I think option 2 would be easier to do while I'm installing everything

CAI and BAP bc you would need a retune with those if you were gonna do that. Gauges are needed as well. Kind of a pickle..

Look at the METCO UCA, its like a freaking tank. I know a company that sells them UCA/ LCA and relo's are going to be over 500 just so you know. Shouldn't be by too too much though.

Sent you a PM back moto. I would do the lcas at the same time. I guess the relo brackets would work with the stock control arms, but you wouldn't feel much of a difference with the stock crappy lca in there. If anything do the lcas and relos first, and then wait a bit to do the uca and mount. Thats what i did. As long as you dont have a huge drop, and do the uca within 15-20k miles i doubt your will hurt anything. Someone made a good point about the boostapump needing a tune. I would vote for lcas and brackets, and the pump, so you dont have to tune it twice.

If u wanna get the most out of your SC LCAs and relo brackets are a must!! I believe it'll solve about 90% of the wheel hop.... If u have enough left over UCA should help as well

So lcas relocation brackets would be fine while waiting to do ucas may have enough to do a panhead bar as well . Just worried gauges would help down road to grr it's always hard I know it will all get done eventually . Just can't go over 500

Yessir. Ive got about 7k miles on mine since lowering, and im still on stock uca with no problems. It is important to do eventually, and is next on my list, however putting it off for awhile wont hurt ya.

I also noted in the PM you sent me you still have the stock shifter. IMO i would atleast get a Barton 2-post bracket. I love mine. Best bang for you buck mod ive done so far.

Spherical bearings are gonna be very loud for a street car daily driver. They are a bit stronger, but if your looking for a perfect balance of performance and comfortable ride i would go with the poly bushings.

These are what i have. Love um

I'll be going with the BMR uca as well. But the steeda and Metco are great parts as well. Whatever u do stay away from the Whiteline. Its under recall due to a few failing units.

Like i said i would seriously consider a Barton 2-post bracket. You will not believe the difference in shifting and performance you get for a $100.

For the barton bracket??? Dude dont you even think of paying someone to install that for you! Lol. Its easy as hell. It will take you like 30 min with just a bunch of extensions and a couple sockets (forget what sizes). Its literally 4 bolts and you're done.


As for the UCA and mount, i dont think Am carries the 11-14 yet. Ill be getting mine from jayman33s site.

I still wouldn't pay anyone to do it. Its a very easy install. But if you do, if they try and charge you more than $100, laugh at them, and try another shop. Its about a 45 min job with a lift. A bit longer on jack stands

You can use the factory mount with any of them. But the stock mount is crap. I would definitely wait until you can get a aftermarket mount as well.

You don't need a boost gauge, just get the Afr gauge, and get an upper control arm with bracket, that should eat up $500.00
