Welcome to the forum, if you do not mind I was wondering how much you had to pay for a car already done like that?

Yeah I would say $4,000 is a good deal for all that you got, the trans alone is worth that...lol.

How are you tuning this car? Do you have a way to scan it especially for Knock Retard? That would be the wisest thing I would say to do first. Just throwing parts at a car can help but not as much as a good tune. I use the AeroForce Scan Gauges to scan while I am driving (talk to HD on here) and for tuning I use the DHP PowrTuner, but they are not made anymore but the HPTuners are and a bunch of people here like them.

I agree with Ark... Get some kind of a tuner. I havn't done it yet, but that's really where you will need to learn when you start installing some of the more aggressive modifications. It's kind of the gate-way tool

I could use the help with Gen V install since you already have one. Just to see what all I need and don't need to run that supercharger!!

Talk to HD, he did the swap himself so he knows what all you need for the Gen 5.
