Default How much power would an intake and Intense PCM add?

Hi,

After I install my dual exhaust I'm probably going to get an Intense PCM and intake. How much power would each of these add? Just looking for a ballpark guess. Would it be noticeable?

Thanks,
Brady

supecharged will probably see 10-15 or so horsepower, NA will probably see 5-10 or so.. Make those mods count and put some big rockers in

Add a high flow cat and get Intense to program out the rear O2 sensor to avoid the ses light.
High ratio rockers will allow you to use the Intense pcm'* higher shift points and really adds to your mid to high rpm hp.

On it'* own the PCM doesn't really add much power, even though it does give a little. It moreso enhances other mods.

1.9:1 would do nicely, combine that with Ls6 valve springs and oil restricted pushrods and you have a soild build

Will rockers actually add power, or just allow the engine to rev higher more safely?

Also, how hard is it to replace the rockers, pushrods and springs?
