    No problem, glad it has worked out for you. Shame I missed getting to see your dyno in person I was just there yesterday morning to have my torque arm relocated since it would have been to much of a pain to do on the ground.

    you're welcome...

    i trust those guys. with all the work and tuning they have helped me with along the way, the car doesn't leak a drop of anything, and runs strong as can.

    im looking forward to getting the car retuned after installing all my goodies next week!!!

    My 2002 went 306rwhp/323rwt on a DynoJet before any mods with 29,xxx on it. What kind of Dyno did they have?

    I second the "get a DD" crowd. That's what I did + the more you mod the more you want to hammer it the more you want to mod and so on...... Having a 2nd car makes sense to me.

    this is true. but they seem to handle more of the mustang and viper crowd. not that that's a bad thing. the two shops are only about 3-4 miles apart if even that far...

    I personally like having mine as a DD, though it can be frustrating at times when something happens.

    I can understand about the modding, no wife, but it has taken a while for me to get ready to order the 9" along with all the other stuff that is going in at the same time.

    LS1's in a f-bod are underrated from the factory...they're actually around 350bhp bone stock.

    Yeah, without a doubt you'll feel it alright. CAI + LT's and a tune put me at 343rwhp/357rwt. I've since done true duals dumped at the axle and it's currently getting a new posi for the 3.73's and a 3400 stall.
