Sorry I've been late updating this guys. I don't have a forum crawler that works for the shop so sometimes I get busy and don't have time to jump online.

I don't have any dyno's yet for the local...

We're not that "local" to you, but we do them as well. A ton of them. We did about 30 sets of 3.91's in 2014.

Let me know if we could be of assistance.

To be fair, the quality / fitment of the Kooks & AR stuff is top notch. Very very nice stuff. TSP is great for the price. Maybe 2 out of 10 sets we'll have to notch one of the primaries on the...

The difference between brands is going to be very minimal. I don't make money off selling any particular brand of headers so it's easier for me to say that. ;)

It really depends on what core your camshaft was cut on. If it was cut on an 8620 core and has a copper colored base to it, you should be OK. If it looks like a standard silver / metal camshaft all...

It's a $30 sensor that sits behind the intake manifold that takes 10 minutes to install. Not a biggie.

Has the oil pressure gauge been fluctuating or doing anything funky?

Those look like an exact copy / ripoff of TSP's headers for the 5th gen.

None the less, great headers for the money.

A properly tuned 6L80e can completely change the way a car drives, in a good way.

SLP / Powerbond pulleys are the same pulley, and the only one I'd recommend accept the obvious & awesome ATI.

Stay away from ASP pulleys. Absolute junk.

No sir, but the regular price is still untouchable as far as camshaft installations go.

We do bunches and bunches of 3.91 installs. I've yet to have someone call me back and say they don't like them. These big heavy tanks called the 5th Gen need the gearing to get moving.
