What's next

Well the modification itch is back, lol. Just had RST clutch and motive 410s with Tru Trac installed. I'm on fence bout heads. Not for sure if it's worth the bang for the buck. So trying to squeeze as much power as I can before I decide on heads and some rear suspension goodies. I currently have cold air, cam (.236/.242), and headers. I dynoed at 475ish hp and 420ish torque. And above mention clutch and gears. So what kind of gains would I be looking at with under drive pulley, intake, and/or ported throttle body?? And what brands??

Underdrive/PTB = not a lot of overall power. The throttle response gains are nice from the throttle body port.

Doesn't sound like a terribly large cam..where are you shifting at? I would GUESS that the ported/rod mod stock intake from GPI would be a decent upgrade for you. If you really want to get crazy with spinning it, you could look into something like the LOD X1 manifold, as it has been making some great power on the big end for some members here from the looks of it

I would look into doing the heads, manifold and throttle body together. Get it tuned once and finish it off. That should push you over the 500 mark which is a nice goal to shoot for. When you're ready hit us up. We have plenty of options

Ye I figured to save some coin and do intake and heads at same time. There's just so many options with heads and if I'm doing heads may as well do cam, man this modification is getting expensive, lol.

You answer your own question too fast...… I would look to GPI for their package and the stuff they have shown here in posts with small bore ls7 heads if you really want results for the money....
