IIRC, you'll want to go with the upgraded JLT CAI and the Innovators West crank pully, then retune thru whomever you trust.

This seems to be the "bang for the buck" on a budget upgrade for the 07-09 GT500's. A little over $1200 spent for a 150HP increase

^^^^ this X 1000

Go with a tune from someone that SPECIALIZES in these cars. Can't stress that enough.

Make one phone call, pick up 100rwhp. It will be like a totally new car.
