Larger exhaust - your magnaflow unless it's a trubendz is only 2.25, upgrade to at LEAST a 2.5, a 3in will help you even more.

Get an ORP as well...

You have an SVT, so your intake cam has VCT.. you'd only be able to have your exhaust cam tuned using a cam gear.. it's not going to be worth it.

As far as crank pulley, are your talking about the CFM crank pulley? You may want to get your car retuned if you're running the stock Vortech pulley which is 10psi and the CFM overdrive crank pulley and only putting out 260/230.

Water Wetter will help with the aftercooler as well I believe...

If you want power drop the vortech and get a turbo or procharger. If you can't drop the vortec you need to do a port job on the head and 3 in exh.

Good luck

You will see gains most everywhere, low, mid and high. Nothing astronomical, but it will help.

If another product is not an option, get a smaller pulley on there and up the boost and retune. Keep an eye out for fueling issues also.
