He will have Boss intake, cold air, Long Tube headers, x pipe, and cat back. A hell of a dyno tune. This is all really needed to reach the 450-470 range. The tune will be pretty aggressive as well.

Keep in mind every dyno is different as well. One may say you have 470 and the next one you get on says you have 440.

What headers/X/cat-back are you going with?

I've been thinking of the BBK LTs with their o/r X, but I have no idea what catback to get. I've heard good things about the hushpower but I can't seem to find it very easily.

This is the same set up I have. BBK LT's, O/R X, and Hushpower cat back. Sounds great. Latemodel has the best price on the Hushpower cat back that I have seen.


Also the BBK headers and X have made just as much power as all the other more expensive headers and systems.

I'm going with the stainless works 1 7/8" headers and their merge spike x pipe! And have the roush axlebacks. Also putting on the boss mani withJLT cai and dyno tune. Can't wait can't wait !

Just throwing it out there...Correct me if I'm wrong but i was told nitrous is the best power adder because you don't have to retune. Therefore, if the motor breaks you just remove it

You was so told wrong.

Running a 50-75 wet shot you really wouldn't have to tune. But also they would know on tear down you was using nitrous. Also they would be able to tell when you spliced into certain wires.

Anything over a 75 wet shot you defiantly want to tune it. You can run up to about a 200 shot with the right tuning before you have issues.

Well...I Still wouldn't do nitrous anyway with a new car. Some redneck mechanic was all into the juice and trying to talk me into it. I think I'm gonna wait and get the Roush 2.3 kit or Whipple kit. I think thats the best bang 4 the buck. If u buy that Roush kit will it void the powertrain warranty? It says 3 yr/36,000 but that's for the supercharger. Why does modding have to be such a pain in the a$$!

Re: Power Adders; Seeking Knowledge

Sorry for my ignorance, but wouldn't simply switching out the 3.55's or 3.73's for 4.10's significantly raise the off the line power. A friend has 4.10's and I cannot touch him in the 1/4.... I am running 3.55's because I like top end speed being in Germany and all.

Yep, that's 100% true. And a lot of people mention that... I think they're just assuming it in this if they dont mention it.

You don't actually have more power. Changing gears don't make more power. The 4.10's rev faster and keep you in the rpm's. They make you accelerate faster. Not make more power.

Re: Power Adders; Seeking Knowledge

TURBO.....pulls like a freight train to 6500, super streetable and a deadly sleeper you would never know its on the car sitting beside it. You can get the 67 mm kit under $6k and install it yourself if you have some mechanical experience and access to a lift, it can easily be tuned between 5-600 hp and geeked up if you desire more.....you can't get those results from a supercharger....Hellion recently did one with just a piston change only and got around 950 out of it!
