BINGO. Pete hit it right on the head. The stock motor is quite capable with a good tune. A lot of people waste money modding with stuff they see advertisements in magazines. Dont waste your time playing the Ricer Math Manufacturers Claims game it just does not add up.pete said:Most of these posts are worthless.
A good tune is very important. Chips are not POS...depending on where you get them.
My bone stock 3.8 did just fine at 300rwhp.
My 4.2s have lived past 350rwhp. The last one made 465rwhp.
The stock stuff is better than most people know.
