im still lost on the whole how to actually tune them though. i mean i know you guys said to get them dyno tuned for best results.
what if i dont have a dyno to adj them correctly?
would i just be screwing myself in the long run if i just took the stocks off and threw these on and tried adj them that way?
with the 5 bolt design do you loosen them up move the gear then tighten them again?

im just such a noob when it comes to the tech stuff, i mean i could throw parts on this car all day and not have any idea how they work or how to use them.

for mods as of right now i have:
svt header
ebay CAI w/ K&N filter
65mm CFM TB
full 3" from ORP back magnaflow exhaust with high flow cat and res
pretty much a race tranny w/ 406 gears-LSD-LW flywheel w/ some stg2 clutch
svt brake kit front and back
toms tune which included egr delete, rev limiter increase, and some others maybe idk

soon to come will be wide band A/F gauge
maybe a short throw shifter

so its not like the car is no stock by any means i just would maybe like a little more out of this thing before i kill it lol, but idk how to do this
