Hey guys thanks for the input. I'm going to keep the Roush kit but may pick up some additions. Do you think the following are necessary or at least a worthwhile upgrade while everything is apart? For...

Looking for a suspension kit and a better stance, I got the Roush Stage 2 suspension; was this the right call?

There aren't really that many reviews of the suspension itself, most reviews just...

Perhaps the meth is not running properly? It definitely seems like your car is down on power top end. Looks like a slip from a blown non-I/C car.

Yea, it's a good deal but you can't just get the 2.49, you need the steeda CAI. The roush intake will not work with a small pulley as the MAF housing is too small. The intake is $250 I think, and...

Add a "VMP 500" or similar to your setup and you're set - easy win against a stock 5.0 and you will edge out a bolt-on one. With your other mods, you can expect to trap 115 - 117, or more, depending...

I would be worried about belt slip with the 2.49, that's a small pulley. Timmbo what are you putting down for power? That looks like a great set-up!

Roush M90: 2.57 pulley worth it?

Hey,

I've got the M90 blower but curious about pushing it for a bit more. My question is about the pulley alone. I've already got intake, tune and exhaust. Most people add the intake, pulley and...

My friend's A4 2006 GTO has intake, tune, and full exhaust (kooks and cutouts) and he usually runs high mid - high 12's at around 110mph. Stock cobras usually trap that stock, some a little more,...

Yea, that's what I think, plus the weak shifting (especially into 2nd). According to the track's scale, the car is 3500 and change.

I was looking at the slips....isn't my 1/8 mph a bit low? A best of 86 seems at least a couple mph off. Shouldn't the mph be closer to 90? My friends goat runs 89 and his best trap was 110.

I ran my 17" bullitts.

For now, I'm sticking with the stock pulley. I could have easily thrown it on before the tune but the car is quick enough and I feel very safe.
