How Many Miles before you Went FI??

I am soon to go with a SC on my 2010SS with 30K miles on it.
I have been pretty easy on the ol' girl thus far, but am ready for the SC and have been in the works preparing for it....


Just was wondering if anyone else waited this long and if there were issues??

600 miles till i put on headers and cam, drove for a thousand miles and was bored already. Put on the D1 at 1600miles and 637RWHP then upgraded pulley and added methanol at 5000miles and 715RWHP. Now at 7000+ miles and bored again so ordered my 427LSX long block a week ago. YMMV

I had my Whipple installed around 21k miles. I'm currently at 33k and may be getting rid of it soon for something new.

I put my on at about 1500 miles and I love it. I went Edelbrook. I was told it was the best one for what I wanted to do. I'm sure they are all pretty good. You are going to love it. Trust me it is only the start. You will never have enough power. I'm thinking about putting a cam in now. Good luck buddy.

Zero. Never drove it before I had THR put the supercharger on it. They delivered it with 600 miles on it.
