    i ended up w/an I-5 backed by an automatic transmission. only things i have bought for the truck were 5600k bulbs, K&N filer, and a tonneau cover. this is my truck the day after picking it up...

    Im not sure if I am on that one or not. I would need to check out which two I am a member of. I signed up because I wanted to get rid of the crappy 15" rims, to find the bolt pattern/offset, etc...

    i dont remember...

    Hey SSwt00SS,

    Nice car bro. Mine is extremly similar to yours. Our #'s are real close also. I have the Trick Flow head and cam package. Your exhaust looks exactly the same also. Do you have an x-pipe after the headers? Right now I have Edlebrock shorties into the x-pipe and then into bullet mufflers. No cats of course. I had the whole exhaust done in stainless. I heard that the 2000 models don't do well with shorties so I am either going with TSP's LT's or the Pacesetter LT's. Give me your opinion on what you think for the headers. 1 7/8" primaries or 1 3/4"? From what I am hearing, LT's may bump me up to around 465 RWHP. Tell me what you think! Thanks.

    Installed a Meizere Electric Water Pump (WP319 in Black), Powerbond U/D Pulley, and Lucas 42lb/hr High Impedence injectors and retune...

    Other mods include:

    SLP Lid
    SLP Bellow
    FAST 90/90 (ported)
    Patriot Stage II Ls6 Style heads 59cc (2.02"int/1.57"ext)
    Comp 224/224 .581/.581 112LSA
    Ls6 Oil Pump (ported & shimmed)
    Ls2 Timing Chain
    LT's w/TSP TD's w/dual SLP LM resonators

    !AIR Delete
    !EGR Delete

    HP Tune

    Stock 10-bolt/gears...M6

    Since most people care to see results comparing apples to apples, I went back to the same shop that installed the FAST 90/90 last August (2007) and retuned the car. These results are off the same dyno. I will let you decide for yourself the gains to be had. Take the difference from the FAST 90/90 or from the dyno day and draw your own conclusion...

    First are the results from last years FAST 90/90 install and retune: 444/395



    Second, here are the numbers from a dyno day they did last December 2007. Yes the date is incorrect. It's not from 2004. Look at the Run # file. Car is also running PIG RICH...thanks: 437/404



    Finally, here are the numbers from the retune today: 458/410






    So, it's all in how you want to look at it. The car gained 14rwhp/15rwtq going off the FAST 90/90 when it's know the car was tuned...

    OR

    The car gained 21rwhp/6rwtq going off the Dyno Day results when that shows the car clearly running RICH...

    The old numbers that I used (until now) were from a Dyno Day this past March, but were from a different shop. Those numbers were 443/402 running rich as well...

    So again, if you wanted to go off those numbers, the car gained 15rwhp/8rwtq...

    I have provided you all with the best information that I can for you to draw your own results as to just how much these parts helped out my car. Apples to apples same dyno used, same shop doing the retune, etc...

    Yes I am happy w/the gain in power, but I'm really pleased at how quick the car revs and the fact its stays at a nice cool 172° now...

    Personally, I prefer to go with the results from the FAST 90/90 install/retune since I know at the time, the car was running at it's best. Just like this time around, the car today was retuned for optimum performance. So I personally am happy w/an increase of 14rwhp/15rwtq gain...
