    Diablo Predator, LSX Intake, 90 mm throttlebody

    Hey,
    Has anybody ever tried this combo on a 2002 LS1 SS camaro?
    I've had the LSX intake, 90 mm throttle body and Granatelli MAF on for about a 1000 miles and want to play with the computer.
    Car runs 8.8 on Nitto Drag Radials on the local 1/8 mile.
    I need more practice.
    Headers are planner for the future and possibly a torque converter.
    Thanks
    JC

    You have a wide open intake, and a constricting exhaust...well theres your problem

    yeah man

    yes I am aware of the exhaust restriction and that is why I mentioned the header upgrade. The diablo came with a disclaimer saying that damage may occur due to lean mixtures if aftermarket parts are used such as nitrous and superchargers. I was wondering if anyone has run into problems related to intake and throttle body changes. Is an injector upgrade needed?
    I installed the predator program and yeehaw....
    it feels good

    with the setup you have you dont need any injector upgrade, you have a long way before you will need them, i would get a full exhaust/ lid/and a torque converter and them get it tuned just my .02

    I got a FAST intake installed and I lost 3 horsepower. I got it tuned and picked up around 20. also got my shift points and what not adjusted.
