next mod?

L99 with LS3 conversion, cam, CAI, headers full exhaust tune.

logically whats the next (power adding) mod? the fast intake seems a little steap given its results? likewise with TB upgrades. Am I overlooking anything? Is it FI from here?


( i'll do driveline + suspension work when needed, as I'll track sparingly but more so roll race)

Ported Manifold and Heads if you plan on staying NA. Nitrous if you want a relatively cheap way at 100+ hp and FI if you are willing to go that route.

Personally I'd just go FI and quit messing around lol, let me know if I (FSP) can assist in anyway.

I dont plan on staying NA but I want to lay down the best foundation w mods possible before i throw a blower on just so i dont have to get into the motor afterwards. this is all assuming the stock internals take care of me

Sounds like you might be ready for some boost. Then you might want to look into a stall and some suspension mods.

Well your "foundation" should be your suspension as power is pointless if you cannot put it down.

As far as best "foundation possible" unless you are going to forge your engine there isn't a whole lot left. Heads/Manifold and Throttle-Body are about the only other complimentary power adders.

Super charge that shit ... You'll love it. FI does require you to beef up other stuff. When you add that much torque/hp it immediately starts looking for the weak link, and unfortunately usually finds it pretty quick. If you plan for that going in you will be fine.

+1. I'm weary of adding any more power before I get my suspension in order. I don't even have a cam in yet. 1st gear traction already fails when it hits the power band. I vote suspension.

If you were gonna stay n/a I'd say do 3.73 gears. Technically, you lose a few horses, but the TQ multiplication feels like you gain 40-50 hp...
