i won the smoothe bellows on ebay for cheap. so i will put that on....but as far as cutting out underneith the air box......how hard is that to do and is it really worth it......i wanted to get an slp cold air intake but not if it isn't gonna be worth it....what is a good way to get good horsepower cheap.....i already have the ws6 package with loudmouth exhaust.......how can I get good horsepower cheap?..........

http://installuniversity.com to see how to do it step by step. not hard at all and takes about half an hour. cheap and hp dont go together perse but im in the same boat so here is my advice.
1. sub frame connectors
2. headers. (pacesetters are inexpensive and good)
3. stall if your an a4 or maybe some 4:10s if youre an m6
you could always get the ls6 intake also which is an added benefit for mods in the future. to be honest, i wouldnt go ape shit trying to find new stuff for cheap. go into the parts section on this site and chat with some people. everyones really cool and will help you out and give you a fair deal i promise. headers are headers,no ones gonna sell you bum stuff.

can you send me that installuniversity link again for some reason it doesn't work
03-22-2007, 09:26 AM #6
hopefully that works, if not just type it in, itll show up. so you just have a stock ws6 with the loudmouth? is it an a4 or m6. i need details!!!!
i may be willing to give you my slp cold air tunnel (which is the main thing other than the lid) maybe a few bucks plus shipping. dont quote me on that though.... its wet and i cant test without it on yet.
just let me know what you have so far and i can give you alittle advice from what little knowledge i possess. good luck man.

Are MAF's that bad? I can see tuning issues with real fat fuel trims and trying to work them out, but my buddy gave me an 06' GTO MAF w/ modified wire connections to boot and it pops at idle for several minutes and idle is a little rough, but really couldnt tell if it was my cam. My brother told me to take off the gto MAF and re-install the original ported and polished MAF!! Went to track to see any improvements and went slower!! Last pass email@example.com, installed SLP cam 51011 and GTO MAF, went firstname.lastname@example.org and that was with 315's BFG's drag radials. Made 2 other attempts and this sucker really started to bogg down 2 and 3 gear at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. What would you guys do in my situation?!!!

First of all about you runnint 13.2 what kind of car do you have and what do you have done to it.........cause when I bought my car brand new bone stock it ran 13.1 ......it's an ls1 trans am..........i was even beating ws6's times........

No, I am talking about the MAF!!! Took apart stock unit,ground down splitter smooth on both pieces, then honed out diameter smooth to enlarge the opening,finished with a super fine sand then polished it out, re-assembled it back together. My car is listed already on my loggin post! Its a 2000 Trans Am. Basic mod's done to car. K&N, Ported TB, MAF,catless,magnaflow muffler,bosch platium+4,modified air-silencer,Diablosport tune. Just found out that the 06 GTO MAF is a 90mm!! Holy cow, no wonder I kept'd bogging out! Cant keep up with the flow!
