just trying to see if they are worth the $695 and $1000 price tag. The rear ends are like glass in this car, and I think with the spectre intake, tune, and exhaust, the D3 pulley would be pushing it rather than doing the steigmeyer snakebite port.

Let me know if anyones used them and what the outcome was. Thanks!

It depends more on how you drive than how much power you are putting out. Back when I had my WS6 (f-bodies are notorious for their terribly weak rears), I knew of several guys putting down 600rwhp on the stock rear, no problems. How did they do it? Soft launches. You could shatter the stock rear with stock hp if you continuously rev to 5000k and drop the clutch, but if you don't launch the car hard, the rear holds quite a bit of power. Seeing as we are lucky to have the beautiful 6l80 filtering torque before it gets to the rear, it's pretty easy to preserve the factory diff even under elevated power levels.

So if you can't live without launching the car hard, then I would suggest minimizing your power upgrades (even the Spectre intake is pushing it). But if you are like me and do alot more highway and already moving punches, then you really don't have too much to worry about.
