    ITBs can make good power over stock, these people must of never heard of a Toyota 4AGE ot a Honda K-Series it ITBs.
    Ghost C keep up the avant garde work if you can get this functional you have my money. I'm especially interested too since most people here seem to think GM makes every car perfect to their 100 maximum potential.

    ^Well, it's maximum potential within a specific design budget for a product that must work satisfactorily over a broad range of circumstances and this product needs to be offered within a specific price range. I'd say they've done pretty well considering the requirements. Is there room for performance improvement? Hell yes. Maybe not as much room and with less accessibility as the SBC market but it's there. Anything is possible with enough time and money.

    Not quite. It's more that many here realize that all of the components that make up the SYSTEM (designed as Sevillian explains above) compliment each other 100%. The heads only flow so much volume. The intake compliments the heads as best it can given the restrictions, and the throttle body compliments the heads and intake best it can. You cannot expect a change to one single component to drastically change the characteristics. You will be terribly disappointed.

    It's like trying to upgrade a Pentium 4-era PC with 512GB ram and a nice new HD6850, and expecting a super computer that'll run anything you can throw at it. Not gonna happen.

    Yeah, but can it run Crysis?

    lulz.

    Man, remember back when Far Cry and FEAR were the big stress testers? Far Cry sucked as a game, but man did it look great for it's day (especially when you ran it on XP64 with the "special" 64-bit patch). I remember I was all proud when I was one of the only people I knew with a rig that could run that game well - an FIC AM37 mobo, Athlon XP 2600+, 768mb DDR, and a Gainward FX5600 Ultra!

    I didnt get into PC's untill 2009 so that's all Greek to me! Far Cry is what started it though. I had to see it in its full glory so I upgraded a craigslist Asus board with 2 gigs and the best an agp card I could find - a Sapphire HD3850. I thought I was hot shit with my 8000 3dMarks.

    Well, that's a testament I guess. My above story is from 2004, the year the game came out. 5 years later in your 2009 story, it still looked awesome.

    Maybe I should start another PC thread in the lounge...
