Im still in debate as to which mods to do to my STS-V. My #1 objective is to NOT hurt the life of my car parts and #2 make it more fun.

Heres what i am thinking about and would like to know what i can expect in a HP perspective (either HP or RWHP): also, if you know it makes a bigger impact once tuned to take advantage of the mod or if a tune wont do anymore for each particular mod, please share...

CAI
Tune
Intake tubes (or take baffles out of tubes)
Pulley upgrade (like .2 sizes)
Exhaust
Anything else you would reccommend that isnt a major overhaul?

Hello,
Well we have all of those components you have mentioned plus the supporting components to ensure the longevity of the modifications. If you are looking to increase boost, you will want to look at our stage 2 system. It comes with everything you need to make boost "SAFELY" and "RELIABLY".

On a stage 2 STSV we dyno'd here it made 457.8WHP & 440.6TQ. When we go to full stage 2 STS-V's we require they have ECU tuning done. This allows us to also do the trans tuning, top speed, cooling fans, timing, etc...
Here is a quick video of a stage 2 STSV making a high speed pass (Look at 1:17 for the fly by). The test driver ran this car up to 165MPH before shutting it down. FYI it had PLENTY left!!!
