Default Who else has a GEN V?

I ordered mine last week, it arrived on Tuesday, and last night I ordered my GEN V LIM from Ed Morad (Thanks for holding it for me).
Now all I have to get is the GEN V- L67 TB adapter.

Did you notice a difference if you replaced the GEN III M90 with it (besides the more audible whine)?
I know Todd has one on 8-ball, but that car is more extreme than mine will probably ever be (my goal is a low-mid 13).
I'm mainly just curious how much of a difference it is going to make on a mildly modded SSEi (FWI, PEM'*, 3.4" MPS, INTENSE PCM, Intense Rockers and OR PR'*, 105# springs, 3" DP, 3" HF Cat, and 3" HF resonator with 2.5" Camaro HF IMCO muffler are my plans for the car besides the GEN V).

I think you will be happy with it and you should see some good gains. However, in my opinion, for the cost of a Gen V, you could've done a lot of other stuff that would've given you larger gains. Just my $.02 though. Headers, or an intercooler, or a cam, would've all given you larger gains. The time where the Gen V shines is at small pulley sizes. You aren't that modded yet so I can't see huge gains from it.

You should be making the same boost with larger pulleys, so not only should the boost be colder, but you'll be using less engine power to make that boost because the blower will be spinning slower. And it will sound cooler too!

From what I've read/heard I should run a pulley that is .1" larger than a GEN III but from what you are saying I could probably run a 3.3" on the GEN V where I could efficiently run a 3.4" efficiently on the GEN III -correct?

My target HP is to be right around 320-330 CHP. Target E.T. is well into the 13'* with weight reduction and lots of track prep. I don't think the mods I listed before will get me there, but by modding it up more as time goes by I figure it shouldn't take long to get there.

This is chadow427 (Shadd).

In my opinion, you're runnin' pretty close to the 300 CHP. Just got back from Woodburn today, and with pretty much the same combo you've got, with the exception of a 3.0" pulley on race gas, I ran a 13.7 on slicks and 13.8 on streets. IMHO the GEN V is more of a base mod for more extreme mods in the future, but that'* just my two cents. Having said that, if you want to get rid of it and do a cam or something, I'll take it off your hands.

actually the recommended pulley size is .2 larger on the V than the III....for example doing a basic pulley is a 3.6 on the V as apposed to the 3.4 on the III
