350 is a huge NA number. Don't be surprised if your current number is a lot lower than you think. All the mods left for you are either little hp adders and or expensive. Driveshaft is $600+ and some folks can never dial out the vibration. For what cams, long tubes and all that other stuff costs your really better off just getting a blower.

My guess 315 hp

I wouldn't get a dyno tune, but if you don't have a wideband get it ON a dyno to check the A/F.

Headers are in now, cams and UDPs will be here by next monday according to the tracking. I was hoping for them to be here by today or tomorrow but they're in Missouri right now and I'm in Georgia. X pipe should be here tomorrow.

Well, most people that have dyno vids who are running the mods I have planned are making anywhere from high 330s to 353. If I am making that low, i'll probably take it all off and sell it and put it towards a blower. I am keeping a spreadsheet to keep track of mod money vs. school/life money and I have made about $1100 dollars so far for mods. I want an M90 badly, but the issue there is that I don't have a job and although I've applied to a few places, I don't know that I will have one. The money I've saved thus far has been from selling things that I don't need or don't use. I don't know how I would come up with the extra 2k or so that I need.

At the very least, I was planning to do that.

Don't make decisions based on dyno numbers. Take it to the track and your trap speed will tell you what you really make.

Obviously as its been said dyno's read all over the place, they are a tuning tool, not something to make decisions off of man!

How can you not have a job? How is this possible? No I'm in school excuses either. I worked 5 nights a week as a waiter all through college myself. Get to work man. Lol

I'm agreeing with most of these other people. Take it to the track and check those numbers! A lot cheaper and to me it says a lot more But, since you're going with the Dyno, dont guesstimate high, guesstimate LOW so when the actual number is higher, you'll be like F-YEAH BRO!
