You are going to love the difference in 2nd gear.... and the 2-1 kickdown will be more fun... You have the exhaust to support the extra flow... You'll feel it

I would suggest one major modification at a time, instead of both the LIM and the UIM. An UIM swap later takes less than an hour. You need to characterize changes seperately.

the upper part is more for maintenance than performance its 10 years old .i don"t see any performance gain from it
