    What more performance ads can i do ??

    I have a 2002 RA TA. 10k miles so I don't what to do major changes. Just bolt on's. This is what I done so far. Anyone have thought on what the next good one or 2 items would be to bring out some more power in this LS1 (not that is doens't have enough but more is always better.
    Rather not change the Torque converter either as I'm not worried about 1/4 times.

    auto, LS1 lid K&N filter, 85mm MAF, SLP y pipe, Corsa Cat Back System
    Dyno RWHP 330.3 RWTQ 349.6.
    After dyno: Bosche Platium +4 plugs, Air Bellow, Predator Custome Tune, 3.73gears

    Headers, they will more than likely make your car a little raspy with that catback. Port and polish throttle body.

    honestly a shift kit and TQ converter would make your car a ton more fun to drive... headers (e-bay ones) would be a decent gain... i got my headers shipped to my door for a little over $220.00...

    also... get rid of the bosh +4 plugs... i've had problems with mine not running rigth with them junk plugs... i'd go with auto light or ngk plugs...


    have you done anyof the free mods???

    thanks all !
    yes, Home of Zerns ! love the +4 plugs, no problems, idles and wuicker throttle response as soon as I added them.

    I seen the SS bolt on headers on EBAY, thought of picking up them?

    lose the SLP pipe? replace it with ? or do you mean get rid of having a y pipe and run true duals ? I don't want to do that.

    are bolt on headers good for anything ? I know the long branch would be better but I don't want to hack up this car or make changing to what I already have. Not looking to get crazy with the car as I have 5 other older pontiac muscle cars in my collection.

    SLP is just known for making troublesome shitty parts so 99.9% of members say to stay far far away from SLP parts...just replace it with possibly a Texas Speed ypipe

    the ebay headders are great my friend put them on his T/A a week after i put my Pacesetters headers on and his are still shiny and mine are all rusted on the bottom, so they are a good header

    With a longtube header you will really wake the car up for the money spent, will be louder and will defiantly have a impressive power gain


    i would go with a set of headers, ypipe, and the free mods...and you'll be happy


    heres a link to the free mods http://www.installuniversity.com/lsx...documents.html

    I guess I should of said, bolt on SS headers (shorty's) worth buying?
    or can I get a long tube header with a y pipe that will work with my Corsa Cat back system?

    air box with K&N filter (direct flow)
    SLP 85mm MAF Sensor
