Or isnt that much of an issue. Am also going to be going with the I WIN 1.90 ratio rockers and the intense PCM. Hows this sound for a starter setup? Est. hp?
First you should have a Intake (with the intense FWI, a 'RicePipe CAI or a Thrasher)
It is also recommended to install a 180* thermo
A high Flow Cat will also need to be factored in
AFTER you do the Basics.......
then you can drop the Pulled to a 3.4....the PCM would follow that....IF you plan on getting Rockers the same time or shortly after you will benefit from the higher shift points..
I would say with that setup you would be adding ~30-40 HP at the crank, but every car reacts to mods different
