    I changed the fan turn on temp with my hptuner program.
    I guess if your going for all out competition (lol spell check that, i'm going on my second day without sleep) and you need to squeeze out every last hp the high dollar headers would be the way to go, but for a daily driver/ part time track car you would probably never know the difference.
    i'm actualy running pacesetter long tubes on mine and can't complain a bit, they fit great and you can't beat the price.
    hey man no problem...just sitting here waiting for paint to dry so i can put on another coat lol

    stall is another name for a torque converter. swaping out you stock one for a stall that grabs at 3500 rpm is supposed to knock half a second off your 1/4 mile time

    I don't know how much it would cost to install but with a set of jackstands you should beable to do the headers yourself in an afternoon. I have air tools so it only took me an hour and a half with alittle help from my mother lol

    if i were to get a stall converter should i go ahead and get some drag radials too? im guessing that it would just burn my tires off, or would i be fine on stock tires? im thinkin between a 3000 and a 3500 stall

    IMHO and experience drag radials on the street offer no advantage over a good radial performance tire.....I run BFG KDW2's and they hook much better than my M/T's or Nitto's ever did.....you have to warm up the drag radials and you dont the KDW's......I've tested various tires and found the 255 KDW's were the best for me anyway.....

    I'm just outside Boerne. Answer to your question is no. No RWHP advantage at all. You have true duals now.

    I only recommend a Nelson Performance tune.
    www.nelsonperformance.com
    He is in San Antonio but does all the "kit tunes" for STS/MagnaCharger etc. Top LSX tuner in the country IMHO. His mail order tunes are very customized and a damn great bargain.
