With the simple mods in my signature being what'* currently been done to the vehicle, it'* given me a bit more feeling in the butt dyno. Not amazing, but more. I lack low end. I can launch amazingly, but once she gets moving it doesn't do a whole lot until about 3 grand. You can rest your foot on the brake pedal, put the gas down about half way, switch off and floor the gas pedal. Tires won't spin because of the oober grippy rubber, but it'll throw you head into the headrest. Old tires would spin w/ out mods.
I skipped the high-flow cat because I'm N/A. I've been told valvetrain mods, for the money, won't make a huge difference. Only thing I see holding me back is the drilled stock airbox, but I don't have the money for the FWI. I've found that I can fabricate a FWI for about 100, but still, that'* a lot for the possible little bit of difference it'll make.
I want some input on where to go from here. I've considered PEMs, but once again, am I really flowing enough to require PEMs?
I'm kind of looking forward to the day I'm out of warranty and my motor/trans dies. Hello l67 and low end torque :P.
