Maybe.. but when it comes to the L36, ZZP has the best product line IMO.

How far are you looking to go and how much $ are you trying to spend?

Im looking to spend about a grand or so overall. I think I'll do the exhaust next. I also need to install the 180 t-stat i picked up the other day. After that a pcm. Not sure what will be done after that probly some suspension, think I'm due for some new shocks.

I'd say go with some ported exhaust manifolds, 1.8 rockers THEN pcm.
If I had to guess that should be about 20 whp over stock.
edit:
You can get pems from www.hulkspeed.com or OlBlueEyesBonnie for cheap and you can get reworked stock rockers in a 1.8 ratio from www.wbodystore.com .

After seeing how nice Bugsi'* car looks im thinking about adding dual exhaust next. I'm just not sure if I should the package or just the muffler and have a shop make the pipes.

I was looking at hulkspeed, is one pem a lot better than the others or is it just personal preference? I couldn't find rockers at wbodystore.

While your post is relevant to the ending of this thread...you can probably get much better responses by starting a new thread on this.
