I already emailed Jannetty for a quote on the next Stage.

Heres what i have in mind.

2" ceramic Long Tube Headers (non catted)
3.6 Supercharger Pulley
CAI Cold air intake
CAI Scoop
JRE Road Race Rough idle Camshaft
Dual fuel pump system
96lb injectors
Trunion Upgrade
Valve springs, pushrods,crankbolt, timing chain + dampener,
Electic Cutouts
JRE Tune

This will put me in the ball park of 650-700rwhp ( 770-830 HP at Crank) depending on tune.

This setup is most likely going to wait another year or longer. This step is more expensive then the last.

I might start buying items at a time and store them rather than having a huge bill at once.

We will see, but i do have 2 more years of warranty left on the supercharger and drivetrain.

Hey my friend! Funny how even after a supercharger, we still want more. That's the best part about our cars, we can keep on going, and going, and going.....

Had to come back and edit my post for some reason thought at 600 RWHP. Currently Im at 610 RWHP and over 700 at the crank. It does make great power. Ask yourself was it worth the money for the extra power that you have now? I can tell you at 610 I am still wanting more. However from what I understand over 700 RWHP need to be thinking about forged internals. Thats even more $$$$. I dont track but enjoy crusing around town. Is another 8,000-10,000 worth 100-150 RWHP? Do you track it or plan to??

My best advice is to ride in a Camaro with 600-700 RWHP. See if its a noticeable difference that your going to actually be using in your car. I am learning its great to say you have all this HP, but sitting still at shows no one really cares. It becomes more about spending $$$$ just to say you have it esp since you are at 500 RWHP already.

Absolutley zero plans to track the car.I understand what your saying. The quote is a ton of money. But i really want that cam sound. I did noticed the 120 hp difference when i got the supercharger, so im assuming the 175 added to my current set up would be noticable as well.I understand i will never actually use all that power, but i do like saying i have an X amount of hp in my car. I do more fun driving than shows. And in reality, the reason we all mod car is for ourselves and others to jaw drop at!!! Other wise id be driving a 4cly Altima or somthin haha

Soooo, after some thought, dumping another 9K into the car right now isnt sitting well.

So new plan.

Going with 1 7/8 Long Tube catless coated Headers
CAI Intake
3.6 Pulley
New Plugs
Fuel booster
Custom Tune.

This should be plenty to go along with the Tvs2300, and all for under $3k.

Should bring the car from 502RWHP to somewhere in the area of 575RWHP

Then down the road i can add the cam and everything else needed!

Yea, makes more sence to just add the missing items that are usually on the car before the supercharger!!

On a side note, car is going to be CRAZY LOUD!!

Yep mine is decently loud and sometimes turn off at drive thru just so they can hear me. I have gotten used to it though and not as loud as first picking up.

Your decision on supercharger is wise. I jumped in with both feet and spent over 12,000. As you not a daily driver and often question the decision. Don't get me wrong I enjoy it, but definitely not used to its potential even when driving. It's all bragging rights at this point

Hey Buddy!

Im thinking of adding these in april or May!

Wish i could do the cam also, but all the other things added, fuel pumps, ect tripled my budgit price. So ill do the cam and supporting mods next year!

This years setup should bump me from 502 to somewhere in the 560rwhp range im hoping

I was on the fence about doing more performance upgrades too Adding up the performance gets pricey. So I hear ya. I think you made the right decision. The LT's will give you a new sound and throttle response. You'll love those. Which brands are you doing?

I fully aware, he does thousands of cars a year. Just because 3 highly modified cars, that drag race, had issues doesnt mean its a bad company.

If only it was 3 .It's the tuning you should watch for. You must have got the "save me from going belly up deal"

But we'll talk sunday anyway.

I just went back in pulleys Tim to a 3.4 Pulley.
3.2 will cause major slippage even if you have the Innovators West 8 Rib or 10 Rib setup~
