Default Intense Level 3 Package

I'm considering getting the Intense Level 3 Package.
Does anyone have any comments on it (whether they have it or not) and tell me what I should watch out for?

the headers will tick, you will want to remove the flex-porition or replace it with a non-ticking section..other than that you should be good to go

they make a ticking sound, because the walls of the headers are thinner allowing the you to hear the valves closing......not always caused by the flex pipe on the SLP'*

and yes, everything is top notch......the only other thing to worry about is the life of your Trans

Yeah, that'* what I've got on my car, quickest time is [email protected] Top notch kit, you'll have to replace your tranny dipstick with on from a w body. And start putting money in your tranny fund after you get it.

well the trans is not designed to handle the increased power (HP and torque) that the Intense Package provides

An Intense tranny rebuild with hardened parts will run in the 4K neighborhood.
