so Shumby would you say the power with the SC is a night and day difference or just a modest difference? If I do the kit I want to feel the power as I floor the gas.

^^ awesome! How did you guys address the boost + long tube headers issue? Were you able to get it up to 8psi? If you can make 430whp+ on 6psi you might not even need to....

It looks like it is going to settle around 6PSI, numbers tomorrow should give us a good idea of where it is.

I know, dyno times keep getting thrown around, "Oh it will be tomorrow." Tomorrow morning, sorry we are busy call us again the next day.

I hope this isn't another LTH failure...I know that it isn't all about how much boost you make. It's all about efficiency, if you can make good #'s on 6psi that's perfect, it would put less strain on the motor. I got my fingers crossed for you dreamer.

Dude that blows the tuner in town here has this thing called a "chart" or something like that. he puts you on it, and then you show up and he dyno's your car at that time. I dunno i always thought that was how it was supposed to be.
