    is this a decent setup?

    first off im open to any suggestions as im just planning everything for now but i was thinking

    ls6 intake
    ms3 cam with pushrod double vavlesprings and all that with stock heads
    tsp longtubes with there true dual x pipe setup
    3.73-4.10 havent decided yet
    and then dynotuned by g-force a local shop

    whats everyones opinion? and its a daily driver but im not worried about being too agresive because i also have 2 trucks i can drive

    what kind of power could this make?

    1. Personally, I'd look for a FAST92/92 setup, but LS6 is a respectable budget intake.
    2. No head swap? If that's the case, I would get as much out of the swap as possible.
    3. Long Tubes = awesome. If you're lowered, you'll want to rethink the duals. They sit REALLY low and you'll scrape on everything. A nice setup including a 3" off road y-pipe and a "catback" exhaust will flow just as good as duals, and still sounds good.
    4. General rule: A4 = 3.73, M6 = 4.10/4.11
    5. Tune = needed.

    People say that you loose driveability, blah blah blah. I drove my H/C/I Trans Am every nice day last year. Yes, it takes some getting used to, buit you'll adapt and learn how it feels, and son you'll be driving it like it's a stock car.

    Have you beefed up the suspension and drivetrain yet? If not, I'd look into doing that first. SFCs, torque arm, panhard bar, rear end, ect. It's not going to add to the power of the car, but it will help to keep you from breaking the stock pieces.

    Don't know if its on your pays list yet, bit if you plan on running sticky tires look into a 12 bolt or 9" for when you blow your 10bolt apart

    Can't really give you a good number, but you will get a big increase all acrossed the rpm range (may lose alittle down off idle) but it will make you happy

    Anytime you run a MS3 with full bolt-ons plan on something in the 400rwhp range.
