I had good success with the RPD R6 if you can find a second hand or unfitted one for sale. Idle was stock, so perfect for auto.

Judging by your power figure there, I'd say you were on a Shootout Dyno, and with an R6 I'd expect you'd nudge 150-155 on the same dyno.

Failing an R6, a Wade 1636 will give good results, probably around the 140ish power mark. And a stock idle.

Or if you want to spend some real $$$, a correctly timed Dev 5 cam on its own should give you 165+ rwkw. And a near stock idle to suit the auto.

130 rwkw is pretty healthy considering the minor mods.

If u decide to get headwork you'd be better of talking to a head shop in your state about port work and a custom cam for it.... jim mock is far 2 expensive.
