    Intake Question this time!

    So basically you guys are backing up what I was already thinking and that I would not benefit from a intake unless I get boss cylinder heads and take car of the bottom end issues that I informed about in my other post.

    Intake Question this time!

    So from what I was understanding the tuner was saying it was better for the first gens because it was able to achieve a higher gain at a lower RPM due to the first gen motors not being able to reach higher then 7200RPM safely, also they don't lose the low end torque from what he said.

    Intake Question this time!

    Good afternoon everyone, I have a intake question. I have a boss 302 intake that I purchased cheap, I talked to a tuner that I plan on taking my 12 GT to and he said I should get the 18+ intake for instead. (less torque loss) my HP goal for the car is to get as close to 450 RWHP as possible...

    Questions on next purchase for the car

    My car was a factory brembo brake car so the front pads maybe original too, should i replace both the front and rear pads at the same time?

    Questions on next purchase for the car

    This makes sense. the car defiantly dives hard to the front under braking so that would make me lean more towards getting the brackets then get the shifter at a later time. as far a pads go I am Running what came with the car so brand and type are unknown. is there a set that would be good for...
