Your only decent power adders are the CAI and tune. The TB gains nothing. For the effort, your exhaust mods are minimally single digit gain.

Quite often the wheel size is stamped on the wheel facing in (back of wheel). If not, you should be able to find the info elsewhere. Once you know your wheel width, you can look for tires that fit...

You need to stay as close to the OE tire O.D. unless you have a tuner to adjust the PCM's revs/mile parameter. Sites like tirerack.com have wheel specs for all the tires they list.

Without digging, it appears they're European. With the OBVIOUS lack of an address, I'd pass. I've never heard of them mentioned on this site. What are you looking for?

Although today's engines don't necessarily require break-in like they did 20-40 years ago, just drive with a little bit of caution but don't baby it. I'd vary the cruising speed and duration with a...

Check all of the plumbing ahead of the TB. Any clamp or joint could have slipped or loosened, allowing a gap which allows unmetered air into the engine. There's also occasions where people...

The target area you'd likely hit staying NA AND not impacting street reliability and driveability is about 350 RWHP, give or take. FI will get you easily to your target. But you'll also need better...

Either tune related or maybe a vacuum leak or intake in-leakage, IMO.

I believe that the Bullitt is running the FRPP tune, as is the '10 GT, which is why they rate it at 315 crank HP (and likely roughly 275-280 RWHP). You can still get a good custom tune but you'll...

On the S197 4.6L, stand-alone CAI's typically gain 3-5 RWHP. CAI and a good custom tune gain 15-25 RWHP. MPG gains are minimal (1-2 MPG) at best providing you aren't getting into it. Usually, CAI...
