    Use the HPTuners to delete your MAF sensor (untested but I think it frees up a ridiculous amt of hp on my car) and do the free mods as you learn to tune; HPTuners will allow your car to grow as well as providing a 20 hp or so gain over stock - it is the single greatest purchase you could possibly make for your car. You can buy licensing rights to the entire year model (2000 f-body LS1) and if you meet someone else with the same year car, charge 'em $200 for a tune. It might just pay for itself over time. Mine never did, but that's just because I'm a pushover.
    No you do not want to delete the MAF sensor unless you have another way of measuring the air comming into your engine.

    You can delete the MAF if you please.
    It goes to speed density tune.
    If you delete the MAF, you WILL need tuning.

    Personally, leave it.
    Everything I have seen shows no difference between SD and MAF tuning.

    The biggest difference would be the STR (stall torque ratio) and it's intended purpose. The "street" 3000 converter is probably more suited for street use on a mildly modified car with lower or stock hp levels. The 3200 SS it built to handle higher hp levels on the street and the strip. I run a 3600 SS in my car and love it. The difference is night and day compared to stock. The higher stall speeds takes a little getting use to, but is well worth the trade off. Just remember that with any higher than stock converter you go with, the higher your tranny temps will get. It's a good idea to put in a good quality trans cooler to compensate for the added heat. I use the B&M 24k Super Cooler that cost about $75 from Summit. Yank does a good job explaining STR on their website:

    If you have the money to PAY someone to do the work for you, you have the money to buy more parts!! All due respect. I cant see paying someone to do something I can do with a little research. New cars are not any different to work on than older cars. They do require more patience and an ability to work in confined spaces. I did not mean to get your britches in a wad

    I would do the Hedders.

    these cars are a way bigger pain in the ass to work on than older muscle cars.
    also when doing mods on these cars, you need to tune them via a tuner program which isnt cheap nor easy to learn.

    some of us also have enough money to pay somebody else to do it and not lift a wrench. not everybody penny pinches

    As the old saying goes "If you want it done RIGHT, Do it YOURSELF"

    Call me old fashion, lets say you have an intake and full exhaust installed by someone else. With the money you save by doing it yourself, you can do a cam at the same time. I am not here to argue with anyone, I just like doing my own work. There is a very satisfing feeling when you know your car! We all have something in common, lets drink a beer and look at our cars.
