MODIFICATIONS
Suspension:
Cobra R Rims, currently with Kuhmo tires (255/275), Steeda front sway bar, Koni dual adjustable shocks front, single adjust rear, Eibach race springs, Steeda upper and lower rear control arms, Steeda front control arm bushings, Kenne Bell panhard rod, Steeda bushings, Steeda adjustable caster/camber plates, Performance friction brake pads.

Motor:
Vortec S-trim Blower running 10.5 psi boost (stock pulley size) 430 RWHP (dyno'd), C & L mass air meter, Bassani X pipe, Borla XR1 cat back (custom), Steeda shifter.

Interesting nuggets:
The superchip chip that came with the blower kit pulled 65 HP out of the motor on the dyno. After much experimenting and expense, we found that the stock chip worked best (430 RWHP in Boise Id on the dyno with comfortably rich mixture). Running 2.5 degrees negative camber on the front end. Panhard rod made a HUGE difference in how the car handles, but made fitting the Borla exhaust a full custom job. Had the add on Steeda rear sway bar, but the car understeered so bad auto crossing that I took it off. Car has won 3 times in the SCCA snake river region ESP class, prior to the blower install.
