My guess is probably 2-3 days. Scott is very good with shipping and should get it out Monday. My guess is by Thursday you should have it.

In order to take full advantage of the PCM and to get the best bang for your buck you have two options. The first is a bit less expensive in the short run but not as much power. The second is balls to the wall and a great way to pick up some great HP. Depends on what you want out of the car.

1) Rockers, 1.9 ratio, LS6 springs, steel retainers, OR rods, FW intake, 1 step cooler plugs.

2) Stage 1x cam,, single roller timing chain, new dampner, 105 springs, steel retainers, OR rods, FW Intake, 2 step cooler plugs.

You could substitue CompCam roller lifters for the OR rods, and go with lightweight rods if you wanted to spend the money.

Rogue, the only problem would of course be that he is N/A, so its either the first option for him, or a N/A cam, which in my opinion is a waste of money, there is not enough gain, for the amount of money you spend.

You can put a stage1x in an NA motor and in fact it runs quite well.

The cam is cheaper than the rockers but labor is more intessive and thus costs more.

The only thing I would suggest with an NA car and a cam is a higher stall torque convertor probably in the 375 range.
