Default planned mods - input appreciated

following is a list on mods, in the order i plan to do them [performance-wise]

180* thermo
AL 605 spark plugs @ .055 and Beldin plug wires.
intense FWI
powerslot rotors w/ ceramic or "pseudoceramic" pads*
3.4 pulley w/ 715 belt
intense PCM
rockers w/ 105# springs.
pems
p&p charger
cam

add/remove items as you see fit, the idea here is to give me an idea what order things need to be done in to get this car running as good and as fast as it looks.

*at this point ill probably install an aeroforce scan gauge to keep up with kr.

yell at me, cuss at me, give me feedback. i put myself at your collective mercy.

Where'* the pulley? I'd do that before any porting. Far more gain.

The 3.5 pulley is the supercharger pulley not the tensioner. :P

port charger
chip
rockers
i like that order only i would move the PCM before you p&p the SC
and i would recommend that you get a MPS system instead of a press on because when you port the charger and do the rockers you can drop pulley sizes....a MPS makes it real esay, over the press on system

And with those mods, he should be 3.4 quite easily.

(yes, he added the pulley to the list after I pointed it out)

He should lookup Pdad or harofreaks posts for the placement for the guage.


Also have you decided to go with a standard aftermarket PCM or a Tuneable PCM (i.e. DHP or HPtuners) ?
