I'm starting to have second thoughts about going with the Level 3 Performance package from INTENSE.
The whole header install looks to be quite the project and I dont know if I want to risk messing something up or blowing the trans...one of those if not both would surely be the outcome. I may opt for it later but have someone else do the work who was more comfortable with it.
I'm still unclear about the problems with the header install and I even read the post from back when paul and o'neal did their installs...like what do we do about the egr system when headers are on there? do I have to mutlilate the stock exhaust system? lots of questions about headers are unanswered for me.
So will I gain anything with rockers and a stock exhaust
? I'm thinking I might just go with the level 1 with a 3.4, since I thought headers were required if you were doing rockers. Then again there is the level 2 package from intense.
I'm not interested in PEMs either.
Any idea what times I'd run with rockers and a 3.3" pulley setup on a stock exhaust? or would I have to run a 3.4 to avoid KR? I see mixed results with the 3.4 and 3.3s so I'm curious.
Headers just seem way to expensive and the pace setters appear not to be all that they are worked up to be. Plus they are still expensive compared to what headers would cost for a 350 or a 5.0
I guess I'm interested in low 14s for right now, I figure rockers and a 3.3 might just get me there....if I do the level 2 I have room for transmission repairs and other stuff like the aeroforce gauge.
My main goal is to be as fast as a stock 2002 transam (13.9 according to car and driver magazine)
or a stock 1994 vette (auto..probably around 13.9 as well)...
