that's around 12 psi. there is def more potential on turbos and fuel system. i believe to run more boost you have to swap pistons and add water/meth

With Stas, I wouldn't would push the stock internals any harder. The 11.5:1 compression ratio isn't ideal to go any higher. Lower the CR and add meth before pushing more boost.

With all this power, my main concern is the transmission. The factory rated the trans for 365 max torque. I would love to have this power, but I don't want to blow my trans. Is there any place I can upgrade my transmission?

I would worry more about the clutch. Can't_c_me has been running at similar (or greater) power levels for a while and his tranny is still alive. This kind of power level will be rougher on a manual like you and he have, but I think you will be okay if you are careful. Don't try to launch it at 3500+ RPMs on sticky tires.

I'm looking at the Ram twin disk clutch. I also have Eagle F1 supersports 285/40/18 on all four corners. Hopefully this isn't too much tire. My clutch is slipping with the mods in my sig as it is. Keep up the great work though. You are an inspiration for us V6 guys.

He has a LLT. I think he's hoping on IPS to bring back their old LLT kit if HP tuners comes out with LLT tuning

HPTuners is expected to release their tuning option for the LLT soon, so hopefully you guess will be doing business with LLT owners after all

Correct, I ran the car at 11-12psi for the first about 5 months and i have a heavy foot. Now running 6psi all day killing it on the road and beating some big cars. Transmission still alive after 2 full years as of March 21. All I do is keep synthetic oil in the transmission and as of end of last year added the GTO clutch fluid reservoir to keep the fluid clean. So far all good at times I get slip but not a problem yet. I also don't run hard from a dig only when I want to smoke some tires.
