HPTuners is DIY tuning software. Sounds like the guy may have hacked up a lousy tune and it is stuck in open loop. The front O2's are not working. Don't run it very much that rich, the converters...

Did you line up the indentation on the piston with the little pin on the back of the inside pad?

the 15's have a different thread and pitch on the lugs, and the lug nuts are a lot bigger. S197 lug nuts may not fit the wheels.

The AM valve stem sensors work fine. I have run them for a few years now in my winter, summer and drag tires.

Get the Edelbrock CAI. It is basically an Airaid unit with a bigger MAF sensor than stock. It will come in handy if you ever pulley down for more power. VMP will need to change the tune for it and...

Since you have cams and a CAI, I assume you are tuned for those. Why are you playing with the tune? 320/325 is pretty good for the limited mods you have. Keep playing with the timing and your 320...

I'd love to have carbon fiber flaps but I'm iffy about the way they curve in at the bottom. But the Jaeger Bros. serve their purpose well though and they don't draw much attention.

Try a Brenspeed tune. Its a lot cheaper than a dynotune and just as good if you don't have power mods other than the e-force.

Sounds tune related, probably the MAF transfer. More air is getting into the cylinders and the cooler temps exacerbate it a little bit to the point where it bogs a hair lean.

The B326 has adapter plates on the block that the stock motor mounts bolt to. B302 is stock mounts too. Unless you're going F/I you really don't have to worry about fuel delivery.

The upper strut mounts may come apart on you when you take the old struts off, so I would have new mounts ready. The lower strut bolts are "one-time use" but it is ok to re-use them, just check the...

Compress the shock all the way, it should extend fairly quickly all by itself when you let go. If it doesn't its toast.

A N/A B326 with stock heads will add around 60 hp and around the same amount of torque. That should put you right around the same as a stock coyote at the wheels, and maybe a even a little better...

Already did chime in, look at the first page of this thread. A B326 will handle just about anything you can throw at it N/A or F/I-wise.

Stock rods have broken at less than 300 rwhp. There's no magic number. To be blunt, they are cheap crap. Any kind of boost and you are on borrowed time.

Notwithstanding the above, I ran 475 rwhp...

Today I changed the switch and the wipers still worked like they had a mind of their own, so I replaced the motor. The demon has been exorcised, they work great now.

As a last resort, you could always pop off and paint the existing piece. Some light sanding, good masking and a rattle can of matte black should work fine.

Yeah, you have a bad cat. Chances are you'll also get a P0420 soon for the other cat too. I'd change them before they melt, fall apart, or clog up. Believe me, you do NOT want that to happen.
