Default I wanna go fast. (Performance Buildup)

How does this order look?

INTENSE™ Fenderwell Intake Kit
INTENSE™ Modular Pulley System with 3.40" Pulley
Goodyear Gatorback Supercharger Belt
INTENSE™ High Performance 180 Degree Thermostat
Autolite® 605(one heat range colder than stock) Copper Core Spark Plugs
INTENSE™ Standard Powertrain Control Module

AeroForce Interceptor Scan Gauge

Tuneup/"fixing problems first" parts:
Valve Cover Gaskets, Pair
Throttle Body Gasket
Thermostat Gasket
Supercharger Gasket

INTENSE™ Supercharger Coupler Change Kit (w/8oz oil and gasket etc)

AC Delco Fuel Filter GF578



From the dealer:

metal framed intake gaskets and the goodies that go with that job


What else should I get from intense? I'm not going to do rockers yet.

Questions
do I need to go with the plugs? will my NGK 55s work ok?

why are there 2 different belts that say bonneville only on the intense site under the performance package?

What else should I consider to order?

Between these two you almost have enough for a dhp powertuner which also scans your car and alows you to tune it.

Looks like a complete list, would like to see some exhaust mods before the rockers.

I want the aeroforce...I dont see any benifit since the PCM should be good for rockers. I'd hope I would not need a re-flash.

If you've already got NGK-TR55'* in there, I'm pretty sure they're already 1 range colder. Good call on the Aeroforce...you'll love it. $$$ order though Have fun!! I know I am with mine

What about a trans filter too?

I would suggest you do some reasearch on PCM tuners so you can see the benefits of it for your car .

Maybe get a high flow cat to get things rolling on the exhaust end of things.

again, i'm going to hold off on the exhaust unless I have KR problems. I will address fueling first (new pump(if needed) and flow matched injectors) then we will look into exhaust mods. I will probably end up going with the Gen 2 Pace setters when/if they come out.

I have a limited budget right now but just want to be in the low 14s.


For now with the 3.4 how much good will a PCM do?

Please take a little longer and follow my advice.

This car needs a lot of TLC and maintenance items first. Please, replace the LIM'* and other associated gaskets. Clean it up and fix all the issues down to ensuring the tensioner is in the proper range.

Then..once everything is running 100% and ready for the mods, then add them. Trust me, you'll be much happier chasing one issue at a time versus compound issues/problems.
