Thoughts/opinions? Just wanted some dyno-proven mods to add about 40 RWHP and sound good in the process.

$400 CAI Inc. CAI

$450 Solo Axle-Back

$450 Dyno Tune

I'm thinking about doing the same. I want to do the headers and CAI for sure, but with the OEM duel mode exhaust I think I'll keep it stock.

Love your "name". Is that your plate, too?

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

Hahaha, well just hold on to the steering wheel...because your car will be a completely different animal!! I did all my mods one at a time to feel the difference that every change makes. And I did the small mods first so the results wouldn't get drowned...it's harder to feel the difference from a P&P TB when you have LT headers already. But sometimes I wish I had just did them all at once.

Personally, I would skip the axle back and do a DIY muffler delete or just replace the mufflers with a bullet style muffler.

2005 CTSV BLACK LS7 Clutch/Flywheel/Slave, Tick Speed Bleeder, Tilton Clutch MC, RevShift Bushings, Domestic V8 Solutions (shifter, 8.8 Diff conversion, srut tower braces, sub-frame connectors), SLP cats, no cags, xpipe, bullet mufflers, Volante, iPod dock, G-force tune; 379hp 381tq.

Killing 5th gens like it is my job.
