I would definitely recommend getting this. From stock is a very noticeable difference. Pulls way harder! And I have gotten better mileage on the Eco mode! Basicaly on sports mode it sends a stronger signal in the fly by wire system. I ordered mine from ADMgarage.com excellent price and service!

Hello, You dont have in your list a compressor... Is this something you have already think of, and "mesure" that it would not be a "good" choice (availability, price vs gain, etc) ??? I'm begening a "research" on that, at this very moment, and... I thought you may have already done that research ? or not... tks. (ps: crappy english = french-speaking, sorry)

sorry, I did not have any "warnings" about your reply, so.. I forgot and... now, I just "passed by".

so, I ment a supercharger, belt driven.

sorry for crappy english, I'm french speaking..

I'm still on the "hold" to buy a Base (G8), and planning to add a little bit of Zip in it, or putting 5k more, for a GT. Thing is that this will be a DD-car, and fuel is more than 4$/ga, here, and ... well, I still have my "old" toy (450hp '87 Trans-Am GTA), that I take once a while to the dragstrip... In a few Y, It could be sold to my oldest son, and then, in my '50s, I look fwd to have some 600hp-427 G8... But for now, for a few y, the Base (v6) shall be ok, especially in winter (0 deg and 3+months of snow)... Still, as a "good gear-head", I'm not comfortable with a "plain stock" car, and so, I'm thinking at wich mods for wich price and results... The supercharger looks like a dam easy way for lotsa hp... but everything but cheap. I did my "homeworks" after my post, but did not take notes.. but I was very expensive...

I'll bookmark that forum, and will be back more often, as two very cheap Base-GT (on hi-millage and one with an accident-repaired 3y ago) are in my target, ... Or... I'll stay calm, and wait for the august-september price-drop, for a GT, wich would only received a nice exaust and CAI (and tune), not much... .

Regards

Yes my 3 inch axle backs to 3.5 inch tips are straight pipes. Also X pipe. It's a little raspy and loud .
No headers yet. But when I do I will get 2010 camaro headers. They bolt right up and they don't foul on anything.
In the spring she will be dynoed again. I have done a few things since the last run. But the 0-60 mph I have gotten to 5.98 secs. It will do better in the spring hopefully.

Our cars looks the same as well. Lol
