    All good. Hoping someone has a recommendation for Tuner around here.

    no idea around there, but I do know the TB isn't worth the money. only adds about 3 to 5 hp. if car wasn't supercharged I would say get it, but say that 400 and get a heat xchanger and better pump.

    Re: 06 V Mod Questions

    Appreciate the info on the throttle body - was leaning that way. Anyone have before an after numbers from the intercooler Timmy offers? I remember reading an article where the IATs were actually worse when the stock was replaced with Flexalite 45321 :

    I don't have numbers but with timc's heat exchanger I see a noticeable difference from stock.

    Tim's heat exchanger is much better it's more like the stock one just 3x biger. I had a smaller one on my 06 and it worked very well. But you don't gain hp from it. But you will be able to make back to back runs and not loose power. Were stock you might run a 13.2@106 1 time and after that you will just keep going slower till you let the car sit a cool down. But with a biger fmhx you will still only run 13.2@106 but you might be able to do 3-4 back to back runs at 13.2 before it slows down. I could with my old set up. Made 5 back to back passes with out any negative out come.

    Great information - I'll add the intercooler to the list.

    Also, might have found a potential tuner - J&S performance and Tuning. I need to visit them in person to get a better idea. I'll keep folks posted - just in case others around the Denver area are looking for someone.

    Let's get our info straight here. If you are talking about running the 85mm with the stock pulley, then it is not going to be worth the money, but when combined with a 2.4 pulley it adds 11rwhp over the pulley alone. The more power you make the more you need a bigger throttle body.

    I sure have felt a huge difference every time I've added new TimC aftermarket parts. The h.e as stated before makes a huge difference. I would see plus 210° temps after a few spirited pulls. Now the warmest its gets is 190° to 200 °max. With a new jabsco pump going in this week I hope to see even better temps with added flow. I would recommend Pming TimC or posting like you did with any question his parts. He has been awesome to work while modifying my V.

    Timmy - thanks. I've pretty got my list. What is the best way to contact you to find out more around payments and a few other questions?

    i had the smaller pulley on mine and it made 3 to 5 hp difference removing the tb and replacing with stock. my pulley was 2.55 not 2.4 but that wasnt available at the time. im sharing my expirence with him that was had one a dyno. he would be better off getting the heat xchanger and pump over the tb. gotta fix the timing pulling issue before trying to add 100hp.

    That's about right, the 85mm is more of a supporting mod. It adds more the faster the blower spins. Definitely worth the money on a 2.4" pulley with an intake and injectors.

    I forgot to add that my PMs are screwed up because my vendor subscription ran out and I'm having trouble getting it renewed. I'm in contact with someone and we are getting it fixed. You can email me at t_coel@yahoo.com instead.
