Jannetty Racing, which may very well be my next stop since my CAI and Headers are on now. It's pulley time

Thanks. This is what I was looking for. I guess I'll need to start googling since there are very few on the forums about it.
Jannety racing has a program where if you buy mods from him he tunes you car for free with upgrades. I went with him.

CAI, TB, Pulley really wakes this car up for pretty cheap (~$1400-1600). there are some good charts at weapon x and lingenfelter that break down the boost and blower RPM for the car.

basically the sweet spot based on the nubmers is 2.55 upper with 10% lower. puts your right to the edge of the recomended blower RPM range.

my advice to anyone is start with CAI, TB and then either 2.55 upper with ported snout or 10% lower. then you can build from there without needing to buy anything different later on.

now if you can headers, injectors, both pullies then this car really starts to fly without a "ton" of labor or teardown.

Zr1 cam $109 35whp is another thing I was considering because I am cheap.

then on the headers in my mind the best choices are stainless power budget $699 and dynatech ~$1200 if want a more premium header.

The LS9 cam swap is not just $109, you have to change a few related timing components (cam gear, and tensioner is recommended by a ton of builders) so keep that in mind.
