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.
Last I read (unless there is an update) is that Tom Henry was'nt doing a supercharger until 2010...where did you get that cost figure?

Changing the thermostat affects fuel economy and affects it a lot, if the stock stat is a 180 dropping to 160 would reduce the economy a lot.

+1

And the oil temps are something to pay attention to too, depending on how the car is driven.

I totally understand that not everyone has the same budget when modding their cars. That is why we offer several different packages ranging from a $3k-CAI/Headers package to this street stalker package for $6k, our supercharger package(includes several other mods) for $20k, and all the way up to our LS7 440ci Punisher package around $30k. I promise if you search on these boards and read the fine print of other tuner shops you will see you got alot more for your money with us. At the same time you get what you pay for. So you need to look out for deals that sound too good to be true, usually means its a small shop with no overhead and not alot of experience and thats why they can charge so little for their work. People do not mind spending a little extra money to get it done right the first time, other wise you will end up spending twice as much in the long run.

To answer a few more questions I would recommend installing the U/D pulley and thermostat when installing a cam shaft. The reason being is we have to remove your stock pulley and thermostat for the install anyway, so for no extra labor charge why not install the U/D pulley and T-stat at that time.

If you do not have the money to go with the entire Street Stalker Package I would recommend starting out with our CAI/Headers/Tune. This way you get the performance gains you are looking for as well as the killer sound while driving down the road/track. After that we can install our custom grind cam kit along with the U/D pulley to get you around that 500rwhp marker

Hope I answered everyones questions, if not feel free to post up or always feel free to give me a call at the shop to discuss our different packages to see which one fits your goals/needs the most.
