K&N Fuel Injection Performance Kit (FIPK) & Custom Ram Air

This is a Sweet cold air intake setup that has been proven on the dyno. Its good for 10-20 HP!

Custom Ram Air - I conected tubes to the front holes of the front bumper and routed them to feed ram air direct the the K&N filter on the FIPK.   I am unsure how much power this may add but the more air you can get the the filter the better

3 Inch Cat Back Flow Master Exhaust w/ Random Tech High Flow Cat

Flow Master mufflers are one of the best you can get for your money. I have a 3 inch pipe from the cat that goes to the 80 series Flow Master muffler and that splits to 2, 2.5 inch pipes that split to quad tips. That's good for 10-15 HP.

Metco Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator
This mod keeps your fuel pressure at a constant level. After some recent research I found this mod to be almost useless, as the computer learns out the change in fuel pressure and compensates for it. it was suppose to add about 10 HP but in reality it only adds about 1-2 HP. It also came with an under hood fuel gauge to monitor the pressure while adjusting the pressure.

Custom Fan On/Off Switch, 160 Degree Thermostat and Throttle Body Coolant Bypass Mod.
All 3 of these mods work Great together to keep the car running cool. I installed a 160 Degree Thermostat and have my fans wired to be turned on with a switch. The fan switch is set up to run the fans at Low or High speeds with LED indicators to let me know what setting it is on. The Throttle Body Bypass Mod reroutes the coolant so it dose not pass through the bottom of your Throttle Body. it keeps the Hot coolant away so your Throttle Body stay cooler and dose not heat up the incoming air.

With all 3 of these mods, my cars temp hardly ever goes above 180 Degrees and Frees up about 5 HP. This helps keep the car running at peak performance and reduces the strain on the engine and gaskets from High heat.
