I'm stickying this because there's some darn good info flying around in here (good job, rebel!)

As long as the discussion stays on task (i.e. - tech related), it will stay up here and we'll start to build the tech side of our section.

sweet! we're gonna be like everyone else!

yes, a mach pushing boost would benefit even more than the non-boosted mach due to the volume of air being smashed into the engine.

another fairly cheap mod for the machs would be to port and polish the intake....im trying to run down NAZman to get prices.

The aluminum driveshaft is something I'm looking at doing. I do know that the spacer is mainly a torque mod. She does feel a bit stronger throughout... not necessarily faster, but just strong... a bit more umph.

Spacer = a great mod for the money

having more torque is more fun anyways [8D]



Are gears on this list? Though the install for gears can be reletively expenisve, so can LTs and such. I would love to get some 4.30 gears

It looks like they're roundy around $160-$200 for just the gears. Install is a different story thought.

From the thread DanB threw up on the registry it looks likeaported and polished doesn't make any power at all.Of course DanB also claims no hp gains with longtubes so . . .

Very retarded! That would be against all laws of physics.

$550's not a bad price for a port and polish, especially on the heads. PHP wants $1200 to port the intake. Those gains on the ported heads are impressive with that amount of lift.
