    Want more powah

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for a little more power, but unsure where to turn (sans F/I). I currently have the VF/Hex tune, Reid smooth intake pipes, and a straightpipe/x-crossover Avior exhaust. I would like to achieve 500 AWHP, that would be my goal anyways. I am thinking with the mods now I have maybe ~480ish. Any insight would be appreciated, and please note I am not looking to do internals, or F/I.

    Thanks all,

    Josh

    Good luck.
    Maybe you could convert to RWD.

    2wd really does make a difference. I went from 11.65 1/4 mile at 124 to 11.39 at 126 after the conversion in the same weather conditions. Check me out at Dragtimes.com name Joff Clarke 2011 R8
