    Update: after taking a few quotes from different tuners/installers i booked an install date with Jpc. They are clearly the best shop in the area with a wealth of experience and success with these cars. I have all the parts minus the ds which is shipping out today! So its the installation and a 93 octane dyno tune. I'm scheduled for a 10/10/16 drop off!

    You made the best choice. Good things are worth waiting for.

    Lets see what i have installed thus far , a Jlt catch can, steeda 2 point g track brace, steeda irs subframe braces, aftermarket wheels, blend mount radar detector mount.

    The rest of the stuff is either to complicated for me or dependent on a tune.
    Jpc will likely drop the k frame to knock out the opg's headers, cams, converter all in 1 shot. I guess i could attempt to do the half shafts but the install charge is so reasonable i will let the pros do it. They've done hundreds of them.

    I understand they are dependent on a tune. For instance our car has never seen the inside of a shop, it doesn't even know what one looks like. We have done every mod ourselves and plan to keep it that way. I guess if you have/or don't mind spending the cash then go for it. I just assume if you are capable of doing it, then why pay somebody else to do it.

    Ive been scouring the net to see if anyone has done stage 3 cams with the gt-350 intake manifold and tb just to see where they are Rwhp wise. I Couldn't find anyone with this combo yet. Many have done the combo without the cams and got decent #'s. Its easy to add up what the hp of each mod will do but its about how those mods make power in concert with one another and the tune. Im hoping to get between 80-90 rwhp which would put me at from 460-470 rwhp...we will see.

    Update: my new circle d converter was found to be defective so its being sent back to Texas for a complete repair under warranty. Turnaround time 10 days, however The guys at Jpc are moving ahead with installing all the other parts and keeping me posted with the progress. Really pleased by the professionalism they have shown.. also decided to add a billet crank gear to the build for insurance!

    Nice to see some of you S550 guys choose the N/A route! Might as well start saving for that Watkins tubular k-member and a-arms to get some weight off that thing. Saw an S550 go [email protected] N/A last Saturday at the Steeda Pony Wars race.

    I admire that! I've always been that way with my cars, my old 510rwhp fox body Saleen never got "put away" for the winter, as soon as the roads were clear of slush and salt, I was driving it, on summer tires and drag radials lol
