Forget about a specific HP number. Just enjoy your car with each mod you add over time. Modding a car is an adventure not a destination.....enjoy the journey. What's a number anyway? ET's are the only numbers that really count.
You must floor it from stoplight to stoplight lol. I just enjoy this kind of thing man. I don't get to run it much so for now all I can focus on is the numbers.

I have bama tunes already, so I am curious as to if a dyno tune from a good tuner would net me enough power to justify an extra $300-$400. Also, what do you guys think I can make with this setup? If everything goes perfectly, (it probably won't, but we'll see) I will have everything installed this week and be dynoed next week. My NA goal is 350 rwhp.

My setup will be:

Tune(either bama or dyno)
BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers
BBK O/R Shorty X pipe
Steeda Underdrive Pulleys
Comp Cams NSR Stage 2 127200 Cams
4.10 gears
Roush CAI
Roush Axlebacks



Just trying to help pass the time until all the parts come in.
I almost made this same thread, but then I remembered that I had already made it. So here I am with a bump. My final mods are :


Tune(either bama or dyno)
BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers
BBK O/R Shorty X pipe
FRPP Hot Rod Cams
4.10 gears
Roush CAI
Roush Axlebacks


Here's my dilemma. I want to get dynoed, but I also think a dyno tune would benefit me. However, a dyno tune around here is $400, whereas I can get a couple pulls for $75 or so. Should I stick with my bama tune and get dynoed or should I wait and get dyno tuned? The time frame for me having an extra $400 is pretty long. I'm in the middle of a semester and I can spare $75 or so for a dyno run, but I don't have an income so $400 would be stretching it.


edit: I'm also open to hp/tq guesses. Since we have some sticklers in here, just assume corrected numbers :P
