I learned from your Richmond gears to STAY away... LPE makes great stuff, and they know it. Costs an arm and a leg...

Just gotta find a good shop to do them. LPE isnt far from us. I might have them do it.

Eh, if I do it I'm just getting an assembled diff from Janetty. It's a simple swap, then send them my diff after its out.

I am going to check out both IPS Motorsport and Backstreet Performance, has anyone heard of RDP Motorsport?

I see the mods, but what are the HP/TQ numbers? I don't see them in your sig, read through it twice. Am I having one of those days? Maybe next winter I will do a cam. Didi you do your at the same time as all the other mods? If not could you tell the difference after it was done?

Oh no you're not, I am though. Haha, I thought I had those numbers in there, but I guess I wanted to keep them kind of a secret. They are 460 RWHP and 400 RWTQ.

I had all this installed at the same time: MTI Stage 2 cam, IPS/PAC dual valve springs and retainer package, OEM 3 bolt cam conversion kit, Kooks 1 7/8" Headers with High Flow Cats, Dyno and Tune by HP Tuners at IPS motorsports, NGK plugs, 160 T-stat

As you can probably guess, it was a night and day difference! My car had almost 100 HP more than before. All I had done to my maro before I got this stuff above installed was a cold air inductions cold air intake. I had so much fun driving my car the day I got it back that I broke the differential Yeah that was depressing. If you don't have trailing arms already, get them! Protect your diff from evil wheel hop!

I was wondering if the cam came later. My plan is to install the headers and exhaust this winter and get a tune in the spring. I was thinking about a cam for next winter but was not sure, but your numbers sure help that decision.

I am guessing I will be around 410 RWHP, maybe 420 if I'm lucky. But after hearing about your experience, I might shift my attention to some suspension parts next. Did trailing arms solve your problem or did you add more suspension parts as well? Did you go with Pfadt's trailing arms? Any recommendations would be helpful, I'm not so good when it comes to suspensions. Is realignment necessary after installing trailing arm? I guess it is better to add parts than to fix broken ones. Did you stay with the same gears?

Thanks!

I've been to RDP's shop a couple times. Seem like real good guys and a beautiful new place. I've seen there work and it is really nice. Don't know anyone who has been tuned there though.
