I did the CAI & tune in my 09 1st, & felt a huge difference. Then I did the pulley & felt the same difference all over again.
Also did FRPP M-5300-L springs. Perfect stance w/19" wheels IMO.

I did the JLT as well on my 09. Had it on & off a few times, & it seems to get easier each time.
I have to say, the difference you felt with CAI/tune will be felt all over again with a pulley swap....

Thanx guys. It was fairly warm out, & I dropped 30 rwhp between the 1st & 3rd pulls. Some intake cooling would definitely help.

Thanx, & you're absolutely correct. 1st is useless, 2nd isn't much better.

Not sure, but I think it might be the "sniffer" for the air/fuel.

My Brenspeed dyno pull

84 degrees, 529.4 rwhp, 531 tq. All in all, I was pretty happy with those #'s. That is, until a Monte Carlo with an all-aluminum twin-turbo big block put down 1422 rwhp!

I've got 19 X 9.5" wheels on it, & there's not a whole lot of tire choices out there. M/T makes a 305/30 DR that I could try, but they're only rated at around 5k miles.
The wider rims & 325 tires...

Can't speak for Blacksmoke, but I will say this; Any attempt at WOT, or anything close, in 1st gear is a waste of time. Any attempt at getting into boost in 1st is useless. The tires just spin. 2nd...

Brenspeed has always been great to me. When I had my 09 GT I had them install their Detroit Rocker cams in it, & I bought a lot of other parts for it from them. I bought their Stage 2 power package...

My '09 GT500. Just got it last August. Put the JLT CAI on it w/tune from Brenspeed. Lowered w/FRPP springs, & I put the 2010 GT500 wheels & tires on it from my buddy's 2010.

Lethal wants $1320 for the RXT w/free shipping. AM has it for $1299, & I can get the 6% forum discount. That takes it down to like $1221 w/free shipping. I'm most likely going to be buying one this...

Thanx! The L springs are for Shelby's, though. I'm not sure they would work on a GT because Shelby's are heavier in front. Your front end would probably sit too high. I had the FRPP P springs on my...

Got my M-5300-L springs & 2010 GT500 wheels installed. Just in time to park it for the winter! I'm really happy with the look, & ready already for spring.

07-09's were rated lower than yours stock, 500 hp vs. your 540. Brenspeed (absolutely GREAT people to deal with, by the way) advertises an 80-100 fwhp gain from the JLT CAI w/their tune. I've always...

Some guys over on Team Shelby said to give it MORE gas when taking off. My shudder diminishes when I do that. I think 3.73 gears would probably diminish the problem even more, since they'd make it...
