Where is that from Joliet and Kankakee? What suburbs are around you? I'm from just south of Kankakee, little town called Watseka in Iroquois county, about 25 minutes south of Kankakee. It takes about an hour to get to Lincoln Mall in Matteson, and about 2 hours, maybe a little less, to get to Wrigley Field depending on traffic. I've been in Alabama 6 years now, but come home to visit every chance I get.

We've got real similar setups. What kind of power did you make to the wheels on your dyno tune? I made 455 rwhp and 415 trq with Texas Speed CNC ported LS3 heads with hollow stem valves/titanium retainers, a custom ground Comp cam 228/232, .595 lift, 114+2 LSA, FAST LSXR 102mm LS3 intake manifold, Kooks Signature Series LT's 1 3/4 stepped to 1 7/8 with Kooks catted mids, Borla catback, FAST 46 lbs. injectors fuel rails and rail crossover, TCI Breakaway 2500 stall, Summit Racing SFI harmonic balancer, Grannatelli MAF, & K&N CAI. The only negative I have to say about the whole setup is the fuel economy. I lost 4 mpg going from 18 avg. to 14 avg. Luckily I only live 13 miles from work and take turns driving with my wife in her Z71 so it's not a big deal.

I like the MAF, but depends on who you talk to. Some people think it's a waste of money. At $299, I'd like to think that it's at least doing SOMETHING... I asked my tuner about the Grannatelli and he said for milder applications you wouldn't see much of a difference. I guess it just depends on how far you plan on modding your car.
