Expect anything from 440 to 470rwhp and 470 to 500 rwtq. This all depends on how agressive the tuner gets with timing and a/f ratio.

this gonna be fun :) :D

will the stock tires handle this much power?

Well........it'll be easy to spin em' but that really wasn't a problem in the first place!

I highly recommend you beef up the IRS or you aren't going to be enjoying your new power for long. Get some Urethane IRS bushings at minimum, and if you start with "wheel hop" let off the gas! It'll save you a load of money in the long run. Also a good thing to purchase is the IRS brace from Billet Flow (it covers the girdle and reinforces it to prevent it from breaking)

A good set of sticky tires for the strip (ET streets) and a set for the street (Nitto or ET street Radial)

Good luck!:thumbsup:

you think i could get em like a month after i get the pulley?or how lng do u think i could wait?can u install em pretty easy?

the bushings are a pain the ass, but worth it...ive got the bushings, H&R springs, and some drag radials and havent had wheel hop since it got warmer...wheel hop is what kills these rear ends, so anything you can do to prevent it, the better off you are...I would say if it's a daily driver, then get a separate set of rims so you can run regular radials during the week or if it rains, the maybe some DR's for the weekend (b/c DR's are no fun in the rain)

i was thinkin some nittos,heard they were good........im not messin with installing anything with the suspension...ill take to to a shop.

that's a very good idea...Nitto's are a good tire, again on DRY pavement...the 555RII's are more of a radial version than Drag radial, so they'd probably handle a little better or the GSD3's are also a good radial...as far as suspension, I would say you're looking at about $600 for install on some springs and the bushings :thumbsup:
