I think it will be a good combo!Nice write up Kponti.
I will be running my SRT intake, HP headers/ypipe with stock bpipe and an Ltuned axleback exhaust. I will be getting cams, eventually.
BTW, I dyno'd my SRT intake with just an Ltuned exhaust. And I pulled a 200whp with new plugs/wires/oil/tranny/diff. change
I vote for this to be stickied, immediately
Take advantage of the slush box and start working on getting a shift kit, higher stall and gears in that rear differential. That will help deliver that 200 whp better to the ground with better 0-60 times.I don't know, to say I did it. I just want to see how much I can wake up the car with some na stuff. I kinda want to get a head worked a little bit and go ahead and get the cams in and shimmed so I can just swap the whole thing one weekend. The headers and an intake would be the only things I couldn't use if I did end up going boost. The cams and any timing setup I decide on would both cross over if I do go boost, but I really don't think I can swing the money for a perfect setup right now.
I've seen 220 through a slushbox on here, with intake header exhaust cams and a gear untuned, there's at least another 10 or so in the tune. Theres not alot more that would be required to hit that 239 that seems to be the highest slushbox whp so far. I think something trick with the itake manifold, a slightly worked head, and a better designed header should get me at least the 10-15 I need to get over that number.
Seems redundant to step it down unless you're boosting to stretch the gears out a bit. Not too sure what to accomplish winding it out on a N/A motor unless your strictly building a highway cruising or worried about MPG.The shift kit is on the list, as for the diff id actually like to step down to the 5 speed 372 vs the auto 390 to spend a little more time in each gear, especially when making another 60-80whp over stock (final goal if all goes right) and use an emu to drag the motor out to 7k. There's no reason it should need to hit 3rd in 0-60.
