maybe look at upgrading diff gears aswell for extra launch semi slicks and good suspention to put the power to the ground IMO 400rwkw in a EL is a bit to much i'd look for maybe 250-300rwkw so it don't wheel spin like a b**ch whats the point of having mega power if you can't get it to the ground? besides it's the torque that will put the smile on your face

Alright, so I'm looking @ a snort stage 3 or 4 kit.
If I go stage 4, I would start thinking about a plenum, but is that absolutely necessary?
Which one should I get?


Alright, so what should be done to the auto box to handle 250rwkw? Thats going to be the starting point for now. That's what I would like to achieve then over time eventually go bigger with more money.

Also, thinking about the diff, what should be done for that? Just change to 4.11 gears or?

Also, what about the intercooler, I would prefer now to have a big obnoxious front mount, but if that would perform better than a liquid to air intercooler I would prefer it?

Thanks for all the help so far guys!

Atleast you don't have to worry about getting it engineered as insurance won't cover you being on P's and turbo anyway!

That's why I have so long to finish the project ;)

Also, most likely only be a trailer queen anyway.
