I am preparing to buy a RICA softloader, phuz FMIC, and phuz downpipe. Do you think this will get me to 300 whp which is my goal? Has anyone had experience with the Evolve air intake system? It looks cool but its pretty expensive.

Do the DP, EXHAUST and FMIC before you do the softloader.

That way you can go straight to Stage II on the tune.

Yes, you should get close.

You pretty much need ALL of the available bolts ons right now.

-FMIC
-DP
-a good, straight through exhaust
-either
--R Kelly/IPD intake with a good air filter
or
--Evolve AMS/EST/BSR Intake
-potentially an under drive pulley

Close as in ~280 - 285HP on a Mustang AWD dyno - with torque roughly equal.

Not the J.I.M.P again!!! LOL
Too funny!

DP, Exhaust, Intake & Stage II tune... Should put you right there at 75 degrees or less. An Intercooler upgrade and you're there all day, regardless of temp. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Wait for Ipd to come out with it. It will be the same exact AMS from the same manufacture but $50 cheaper and ipd's customer service.

Re: (m3nt0s)

Definitely the things you said will get you close to 300awhp.

-DP/cat-back
-FMIC
-RICA stage 2

Re: (Oz60R)

I have a custom tune done by a professional, and pretty much all the pressure the stock turbo gives (1.5bar constant, 1.7-1.8bar spike), and if I remember correct, the wheel hp is still somewhere around 280-290. AWD eats a LOT of power. There's about 35hp difference between FWD and AWD modes.

Add a big intercooler and there's a small change of getting 300whp.
If money isn't an issue, put in a Garrett gt3071r and bigger injectors.

How do you buy the RICA stage 2? Looking at Viva's web they only have stage 1 there.

Pure dyno numbers don't mean squat.

I've seen people completely stock put almost 260 down stock.

The real comparison is the differential. Dyno stock and then see what your gains are all tuned up.

Otherwise it's just an internet d*** swinging contest.

I'm hoping to dyno within the next couple weeks to see what kind of power the Viva hybrid turbo makes. Why is it that I'm already dreaming of a GT30?

Go big or go home!!! I plan on just going big from the jump. Although for easibility reasons the Viva upgrade is tempting...
