This is my first post and I am about as happy as I can be wih my V. After lurking her for months and driving several cars I finally chose a silver 07 with about 18k on it from Houston. I flew down in mid March, the car was exactly as advertised, made the deal and drove it about 800 miles back to Gerogia. The car had a Magnaflow exhaust and a Volant CAI air box on it. It ran strong but I already knew I was going to do more to it prior to buying it. I had my good friend Scott Bowen, who owns In-Tune Motorsports in Charleston Tennessee, just outside of Chttanooga, order a Magnusson supercharger and a set of Kooks headers shortly after purchasing the car.

Scott got all the parts in about 2 weeks ago. Scott has a Mustang dyno that is more capable of properly tuning an engine by application as it takes in consideration vehicle weight and load unlike the Dynojet dynos do. He baselined the car at 331 with the 2 mods that were on it when I bought it. After the Maggie and headers the car laid down an even 440 when he finished tuning it. He pulled 456 but backed it off a little as he experienced some slight detination and since I plan on driving the car every day didn't want me to have any issues with it.

My daughter and I picked up the car Friday and drove it on a 700 mile roundtrip to Louisville and back to Rome. We had a blast. The car is awesome excelerating through the gears and sounds wicked. Once at hiway speeds it is just like a stocker. Scott did an awesome job on the car.

For anyone looking for an honest and extremely competant tuner in the southeast I'd reccomend him to anyone. He can work on anything as well. In the past he has built one of the baddest Grand Nationals I ever had, did some nice performance mods to my Viper, built me a stroker/supercharged SS Camaro, and fixed another tuners issues on my GrandSport with the clutch and flywheel. Just like before, Scott's work all looks as if the factory did it. I aatached a couple of pics after I got the car. Some time during the week I'll get V cleaned up and post some more picsof the engine. Until then, I'll just have this perma grin on my face. Thanks Mark

Congrats and welcome. I am also right at 440 but without the Kooks, so it does sound like he left some on the table. I also DD my V.

Congrats!

Did you re-use the Volant intake box? If not, what are you going to do with it? :D

Sorry if the question is dumb, but i'm not sure if the Volant box can be used with a maggie intake

Not a dumb question at all. I am going to sell it because you are right, I was not able to use it with the maggie. PM with an offer if you are interested. I will be listing it and some other parts I have soon. Thanks Mark

I have a volant box and a maggie. I't looks much better than the stock box. People say they are crap. I think the others are. Oh well. I like my box and it works well.
