    What Gains Can I Expect!?!??!?!?!

    got an exhaust question...i got a magnaflow catback, slp lid, and a TB bypass on my 2000 Z28...i want to buy an ORY and Pacesetter LTs and was wondering how much horsepower and torque I would approximately gain w/ and without a tune.

    Without a tune id guess maybe 25 rwhp. If you get a tune probably up around 40 rwhp.

    With long tube headers no cats, you only use the front two 02 sensors but you will need 02' extensions for them. You dont' have to do anything with the rear 02's just tuck them away under the car. Only problem is the SES light will come on but there is no problem. Instead of paying ur freind to tune them out with hp tuners, save up some more money and get a custom tune. That will give you the most Horse power for you bolt on's and they can just tune out ur rear 02s for u.

    +1 on custom tune. If you need a set of 02 extensions let me know i have a extra pair we could work out a good deal on.

    I say if you have a lot of money to throw at it then get all the parts you can afford and put them on, then get a custom tune(not handheld). Make sure your done modding for a while because a good tune will cost a pretty penny.

    +1 on the custom tune over getting a friend to do it.

    Also, no need to bump your thread while it's still one of the top 6-7 threads on page 1.
