I would definately get the dual pass endplate. It helps alot to keep IAT2 low. If you are going to be driving like an asshole all the time, I would personally either get meth or stick with a 2.8 inch pulley.
If you get exhaust I would get it with the resonator. I personally think cars without the resonator sound like ricey ass.
I would get the catless DP for your setup. If you are getting a custom tune they can turn off the error for CAT efficiency (this is illegal for a street driven car, just FYI).
chances are that you will need a new clutch at some point in time, but labor to put in a clutch is probably going to run you about $600 or more (probably more! I have no idea what they charge for a clutch install), so you are looking at close to $1500 for the clutch + labor.
thx northvibe + insylum for your tips . i know its always best to go with GMs stock sets if i dont know much about cars, but i got a buddy mechanic looking into things and i already have a place right down the street that already said as long as i get any parts theyll install and tune/dyno my shit . but i really really appreciate the lookin out!! more feedback than ive g***en before haha.
rnjmur - gotcha on the injectors, didnt see that the stage 3 zzp comes with the #60 injectors..
and ill go with the 2.8 pulley (still have no clue what the "shorter belt" and "zzp adjustable tensioner" options are?)
also, where can i find out what i need for methanol injection? and does this work like shots? or is it just something that i need to refill somewhere every couple of months? <-really interested in the methanol btw.
also i will still be getting the s3 h/e just to keep things nice n cool.
and ill get the dual pass endplate as well, but is this the only thing i need??
like do i need any other pipes to go with it? and should i add option B to this item? (have no clue what the differences are)
as far as the downpipe with NO cat, what would i need to outfit my exhaust all the way to the back? cuz im assuming id need a test pipe or something to continue from where the cat should be all the way to my fart pipe.
(and yes, im preferring to run without a cat, for the fact that my dealership is being a douche. i got that paper saying that cats on my specific car tend to throw engine check signs, and it will need replaced if it does. i was already told by another place that the air filter in my cat is going bad and that the cat will need replaced eventually, so if they wont replace it, then fuck it i dont need it lol). and should i get the 3" weld option or the 3" bolt in? aaand finally, what is this with/without gasket option? just wondering.
also, to add on about the NO-cat solution, my personal flavor is that i like to have a ricey sound to my car (unfortunately lol), but if i am to go with no cat, would it make more sense to throw on the resonator anyway, just for the fact that my car will prolly be really loud without the cat??
continuing on about the cat.. is this the only other part that i would need for the exhaust?
and would this work with the no-cat option?? also, speaking from before, i have a flowmaster at the end of my exhaust. would i pretty much just be replacing that as well if i got this option?
aside from all things listed, i will of course be getting a cold air intake (preferably injen). do you have any specific suggestion on a type? as ive seen a few different types of injen cold air intakes for my car.
last, what do i do as far as performance headers are concerned??
so to sum things up right now, this is a good start to what i see myself getting:
+ resonator? ~$600(+100 core charge)
~ + bolt in option? ~ $140-160
~ $460(+125 core charge)
~ $105(+100 core) - still need to know if i need something in addition to this piece)
this adds up to approximately $1550 (+ an additional 325 in core charges) + tax of course and shipping (QQ )
all this together will most likely push over my 2000 budget initially, but that should be fine i believe (except the labor charges ouch! :/).
also, one again, still interested in the whole methanol injection, and performance headers options.
let me know!
--edit : also, im seeing that the hahn brand over on turbotechracing has good quality exhaust and its cheaper, is this true? still catless?
