    Dyno to start?

    Hey,

    I have an opportunity to throw my 2002 TA on a Dyno machine for tuning for $100. CHEAP

    Question: Should I mess with it before I do some more mods or can it really help me where I am.

    Mods: SLP intake, Lid, 3" exhaust.

    Thanks

    I will probably wait to invest into a cam, so it may be several months.

    Also, I have heard a bunch of people talking about not messing with low stall converters (3400 or under).

    What is your thought.

    Thanks for your input.

    i dont have an auto so i dont know much about stall's ...pacesetters as i said are 379+129 for the catless y pipe....the shop around here gets 300 for an install but u should be able to do them yourself if your even somwhat mechanicly inclined ....if i were to take a guess id say your in the 310-320 rwhp range now with a tune and with pacesetter long tubes 340 rwhp range with a tune then a cam would get ya around 400 when u get there

    Thanks brother for all your advice.

    I think I am going to hit up that dyno and tune to see what I can get out of it where it is. I will definitely be looking into the Y and long tubes in the near future. Man this is like crack for the big boys!

    I'll let ya know how things go...

    Thanks again
