Front stays on. You'll need a helper to rotate the condenser out of the way. Unless you vent it and take it out.

Its pretty straight forward. Look at www.ls1howto.com for reference. Follow that and you should be golden

pulls like a big dog. the power really pushes the limits of stock clutch and shifter - no doubt. need headers - no doubt. rev limiter at 7000, i really am impressed and heads go in next. once i got the resonators off ran really good. The D/R's help greatly. I haven't dynoed after getting resonators off, but stock i was 310 to the rear wheels (dynojet)

What do you think I should produce ?

with the REV double springs the train noise is a little more than I like, but they shouldn't wear out or fail (i pray daily on this )

about 15 GTO's are scheduled for drags at Houston Raceway Park this sunday, sunday, sunday will have some slips then

I would say mid to upper 300's, if you need headers call me..... I can hook you up!

I would agree with GTODEALER because I ran 308RWHP with just a K&N CAI.
