    Not a problem at all. I as long as you do things correctly. Ie tune and keep the boost at a safe psi. And a few supporting mods, you will have a very fun daily driver.

    Forced induction is the best bang for the buck at this elevation.

    Where abouts in Colorado are you?

    I ran a P1SC-1 on my completely stock LS1 for about two years on the same belt with no problems. The only change was to 38lb injectors, long tube headers, high flow cats and a good conservative 7lb boost tune. With a 3:42 rear end and Yank 2800 stall it dynod at 454/413. During those two years I used it as a daily driver and competed regularly on three drag strips and participated in 'Track Days' on two road courses and one NASCAR track. That was the old version of the P1SC with the small dual intercoolers. The new ones are much larger and much improved which many now feel are even better than a FMIC (front mount intercooler) because they don't block off air flow to the radiator which helps to avoid overheating problems.

    thanks for the info

    Just a quick thanks for the info. I've got a basicly stock 02 SS, 6spd, SLP subframe connectors, MAF, Y-Pipe, 345hp package, Preditor tuner, that with Nito's and cool dry weather I used to run 12.70's ran 12.68 at Baytown. I've kinda gotten out of racing for the last couple of yrs(too much money, fun and time in Thailand). I am really missing the track and of course am looking for the "best bang for the buck". Looks like forced induction. I like the idea of when I can(well I do try) keep my foot off the floorboard the gas mileage doesn't suffer too much. I think a head/cam package would adversly affect mileage. Spraying with a 6spd is a receipe for disastor. I also like the idea that with the heat and humidity one would not loose as much et. Hot humid weather has always been a killer for my SS.

    Any ideas are welcome. Any good shops in SE Texas? I know some, but am always looking. I have never been a good mechanic(I always could and can still drive).I can do some of the simple stuff but feel much more comfortable with a good shop.
