    On the way to 600rwhp......

    Hoping this helps someone and further educates me in the process. I'm a cheap bastard so I've been pulling my parts together picking the best deals up, especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here's what I have so far:

    1) ID850's - $762
    2) Airaid CAI - $252
    3) Track attack HX - $508
    4) 29gpm HX pump - $260
    5) Dual catch cans - $130
    6) NorCal tank - $365
    7) ZL1 Lid - $250
    8) Kooks headers, coated, catted Xpipe - $1,750 (we have emissions so I needed cats, may gut them later.)

    ***All prices are delivered. Felt like I did pretty good. Not jobber pricing but definitely below retail. Below is what I still need:

    1) Upper/lower pulleys - still not sure, but want to stay around 23k rpms or less on the blower.
    2) Cam kit (springs, pushrods)
    3) Plugs
    4) Ported TB
    5) Tune & install

    Did I miss anything? Any thoughts on pulley combo's?

    1) IW 10% overdrive lower (think that is an 8.6) with 2.55 upper would be an option - not overspinning the blower
    2) If you have a manual trans check out btr stg 3 cam kit
    3) TR7IX plugs

    Ebay seller, only 2 sets remaining!!!
    No affiliation with the seller. Just wanted to give someone a deal like I received. Seller is listing ID850's @ $828 with free delivery or make offer. I offered $770, he countered with $812. I offered $787 and he accepted. Also used Bill Me Later for another $10 off and received $15.74 in ebay bucks. So net $761.26 delivered and no tax. Looks like he has 2 more sets. Good Luck!

    Edit - looks like he raised his price after he sold me mine.

    Add some E85 and you will prob hit 700rwhp with your listed mods. I gained 108rwhp and 71rwtq from E85 alone.

    Only 3 E85 gas stations in NC. Not viable for me unfortunately. I'd be all over it if I could.

    I am running stock internals. Only thing I changed in the fuel system was injectors.

    to run E-85 is all you have to change is the injectors? The fuel pumps are safe along with fuel lines ect.?

    Yes injectors only. Fuel pumps are good to about 675rwhp at least in my car. My pump is maxed out now so any more power mods I would have to replace the pump. Just make sure you get a safe tune.
