1. Tune (coming next week)
2. SVT Header/ORP/2.5 Flex/2.5 Borla the week after the tune
3. SVT Intake Swap (i've got everything and could do it for free) or ported 2k and 65mm tb (could do the svt swap anytime i've got everything already)
4. Stage 2 Cams/Adj. Cam Gears/Dyno Tune (probably around the end of may)
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

I would honnestly wait for on the tune. Nothing you are doing will need the tune. Then why pay the price for a tune from tom for a month, then go pay dyno tuning money a month later.

I would do the header and exhaust, then the 2k and 65 (what brand tb), then do cams and gears. then go get a dyno tune with the xcal.

Also on the buckets, i have a line up on those, if you pay shipping both ways you will get a box of buckets, like 30 or so, and put your stock ones back in. Let me know when you ready and I'll get you in touch with the man with the box o buckets if he has them or has them out on assignment.

how about my mods thus far...

installed right now:


steeda sri
steeda 8mm plug wires
iridium plugs
svt headers
svt flex
svt orp w/mil
svt 2.5" magnaflow trubendz exhaust
70mm FC tb
massive crank pulley
massive water pump pulley

Going in soon:

2000 intake (ported)
FR head (will be ported)
crane stg 2 cams
adj cam gears
cfm alternator pulley


...i also have a custom tune from tom for whats currently installed. think i should get a dyno, or will a new tune from tom suffice for a while after the new stuff goes in?

ok thanks chaney that gives me a better idea of what to do! hmmm me and starfury should do a cam install together then we could just come pick the box of buckets up from you or something....although shipping might be cheaper than driving
