Default Picked up my car from Tim today (Modular Powerhouse / Mr. Norm's)

Decided to just drop my car off and all my parts with Tim while I was on vacation...knock it all out and have it tuned at once.

Dropped off...

2.3 whipple (3.0 pulley)
bap + supporting fuel and maf
Subframes
single blade tb

First off, as I said last year...Tim is an awesome guy to deal with. Super nice and super helpful. I'll never let anyone else touch the car. Car always comes back driving perfect.

I can definitely tell a huge difference having the subframes on...and maybe its just a placebo effect, but shifting feels so much smoother and firmer.

Anyway, you all arent here to read...you wanna see results. I gotta say...I'm thrilled w/ the numbers. Dyno sheet below.

Once again, would recommend Tim for ANY ford or chrysler / dodge tuning.

594 / 547

The exhaust overpowers it most of the time. Dan said it sounded great. He got a video on the way back.

Nice numbers....What subframes did you go with? My bro is shopping for them and was leaning toward MM or Steeda.

Awesome numbers!

Very similar to what my setup was before I sold it. I ended up also getting a more aggreesive tune that I ran with the 2.8 upper and 100 octane for track days and such.. it didn't add a lot of HP, but it did add a ton of torque.

Fuck I miss that car

I thought that Whipples and KB's were both supposed to sound the same. But I've never really heard a Whipple in person.

But mine could be broken, it didn't used to sound like that.

I bet after I have the blower rebuilt, it will be much quieter.

Get the dyno file from the dude. Download winpep 7. Change from SAE to STD, that will push it over 600whp. Then u wont get shit from HK.
