Scotty I am going to be frank here. It might come off rude, but take it as you will.

You need to have a plan mapped out for your car. Throwing random mods at your car because they sound cool and everyone else is doing them is stupid. You will actually hurt performance without having mods that work together. You do not need the header until you have the rest of the exhaust. It will be useless without the rest. Cams will kill the performance of your car. You will have an intake, header and cams. You are missing half of the mods that you should have.

Research and figure out what you want to do. Ask questions, look at other peoples approach. Get proven mods, look at peoples dyno sheets and the combos that they have. Some cars are faster with intake and exhaust with supporting mods than cars with cams and stuff. It all depends on what mods and how well they play off each other.

If you do intake, do the TB. If you are going to do a header, do flex, and cat back. Coil and wires. Do the basics before you get crazy with hard things. I hate to see you dump money on your car and hurt the performance. Also you will want to get a tune, because your car is weak stock, you need to run a tune to firm your shifts, and help your car function without blowing up.

^^^ sweet i think my neighbor may actually have that stuff! so we could just use it for free i'm actually hoping he'll help me do the cam install since he's a GM engineer and had a twin turbo vette before he upgraded to a "more reliable" c5 corvette

Hey Chaney care to critque my mod list and order?
1. Tune
2. SVT Header/ORP/2.5 Flex/2.5 Borla
3. SVT Intake Swap (i've got everything and could do it for free) or ported 2k and 65mm tb
4. Stage 2 Cams/Adj. Cam Gears/Dyno Tune
does that seem like a decent order? is there something else i should get before the cams go in?
o and i've already got plugs and wires done and I can get new retunes anytime i need

Oh chaney are you offering your critique to mods and plans? If so ill post mine up. All though mine are pretty obvious b/c of boost lol.

What is your thought of doing like stg 2 cams and then dialing out the overlap when you boost. I know you can do turbo grind cams but they are too much, if its a bad idea then i would just keep stock.

Woot, ordered those plate lights for myself and brad.
