Peaky? It's pretty much as flat as the stock torque curve, it just extends several hundred RPM past the stock peak. It's naturally aspirated, what do you expect? That's about as good as it gets. It's much less peaky than FastLane's Stage II kit. I guess if you're used to superchargers it looks peaky. To me it looks (and sounds) like sex!

guess I was expecting more below 4500 rpm. I know some rear end gears will make up some of the low end that is lacking tho.

Its got plenty below 4500. If the car was at the track it wouldn't be below 4K except maybe first gear.

It doesn't seem THAT expensive. A little less power than Henny's supercharged package and $4k cheaper. It's nice that there are packages for every price because I can't afford a supercharger like that right off the bat. Are the pulley and thermostat necessary for simpler applications like just exhaust and intake or do they really only start helping with higher level stuff?
sorry, I'm a little tuner slow.

Pulley and thermostat are some of the cheapest mods you can do to gain a bit of power, so you might do those first if you are looking for inexpensive mods without much in the way of side effects. I think the thermostat costs like $30, no reason not to do it that I know of.
