Them thar are pretty good numbers, Gladius. I'm a little detuned right now. I saw Tim again today and we are looking into the 93 tune to max it out on the 32 tooth. That way I will own 2 tunes. The stock Vortech tune (91) and a custom 93 CMR tune. I'm only at 6.5 lbs. boost and won't make more than 530-535 rhp. But that get's the party started, if you know what I mean, lol.

u want more power?

Now you got me debating my mods again haha...but im going against the reality of spending that much money on my car not knowing how much longer im going to keep it..$9000 is a LOT of cash to be dropping on a car if you only have it for 3 more years and also especially when i have a mortgage payment....not to mention other things like trans and half shafts and suspension

I wouldn't put $9k in any (modern) car I was considering parting with in less than ten years. You won't get it back out.

Its about a 10 hr job so your paying $150.00 hr. I personally think its high. Are you doing headers at the same time? If not you should because they have to pull the heads to do the cam.
