heh, sounds like your going to kick my *** (for a bit ). Just wait until the PCM opens up the engine...should be in for a hell of a ride. I do caution you against to much HP without enhancing your tranny. I'm scared as it is with 400ft/lb tq. Just waiting to grenade my diff into the tranny or snap an input shaft on the 1-2 shift. I've actually been taking it easier than normal lately.

BTW have you been scanning your car for KR? Any dyno numbers? I will be interested to see how your cam wakes it up. If Kendra had not have bought a horse I would be seriously looking at heads, stage 2, and possible the 112. All things depend on getting this PCM fixed though. I guess we will see what my times are for IDDV on the 16th.

During the course of the summer I might do some tranny mods and a couple of other secrets upgrades as well. I have talked to some people and alot of them haven't had that much trouble with their tranny'*. Of course every situation,driving habits and car is different so i will have to take it day by day( or 1/4 mile by 1/4 mile.)

Congrats, I bet that thing is a beast!!!! We should meet up at the track this year. How far are you from Union Grove aka. Great Lakes Dragway?

I'll just answer your DHP PM here, Whisky join www.ILGCP.com Charles visits there frequently, his name is Beyerch people go to his house all the time for tunes. He lives in the Chicago Burbs. Not a bad Idea on us both going there and seeing what he comes up with. I'm game for that. I hear he has the whole month of April off at his REAL JOB and will probably have some time for some SSEi programming.

Side story here, new PCM option coming for us. Program it your self they say, the trouble is rising on ILGPC. Not really, all nice people there.

I had the same guys install my 1X and picked up my car when whisky 98 was having his car worked on. I like this cam alot, so far no drivability issues. Except for the 130 spring being too loud. Almost sounds like a solid lifter cam.
