I'm so pumped! It's gonna kill me waiting until it gets here lol.

Question for you as I think I should probably start researching: What have you done to your internals to run 13 psi safely?

well its all in the tune , and im running a 6 and had the Vortech for about a year now . its seen as much as 15 #s in the winter , but I use meth to keep the a/f in check . never had an issue yet , not sure what is a popular #s with the v-8 crowd . most try to keep it under 460 horse power

Yeah, this kit is non-intercooled so I'm probably gonna stay that way until I can beef my internals up. I should be around 400 whp with the stock pulley.This is my dd so an engine blowout would be the worst.

i got a front mount intercooler off e bay works great , did lose a pound and a half of boost , but the a.i.t.'s look great so I can live with it

did you still gain power?

edit: I am still a noob to a lot of these terms, so please bear with me. What does AIT stand for?

oh yes more boost and tune got more power , a.i.t. is air inlet temperature. the cooler the better , if the a.i.t. gets to hot you get detonation . . . . motor goes boom !
