For the amount of money you'd spend on all of that stuff, you could get a full size intercooler and make more power consistently. Unless you already have one, in that case, ignore me.

And run E85. So much cheaper than premium, that it pays for itself.

What are your current mods and what is your budget? This is the place you will find just about every answer you need.

I have a set of low mile 42lb injectors if you're looking. The stock fuel pump, assuming it's in good shape, should be fine for mild mods. With e85 I can't say from my experience. I already had another pump in before switching fuels.

Definitely get an intercooler then, don't bother with the Gen V if you already have a ported blower. The 1.9's are good, they'll compliment the Intercooler quite well. You should be able to snag both of them used for less than $500 these days. I haven't been in the market in a long time, so I am not really sure. After that you have to decided if you can/want to run E85 and size your injectors after that. Turtlemans 42's will work just fine with 93 octane pump gas though and they're used so you should get another good deal with them.

Thanks for the advice, I think getting the intercooler sounds good actually. Would hood clearance be an issue? And yes turtle I will need to get those injectors off of you soon.. lemme know when you are available.


Check this stage 2 intercooler from zzp I want to purchase.

I don't go on the forums at all, but you should be able to find used stuff for way cheaper. Buying new guarantees you won't have any issues at all, so that's entirely up to you.

I have plog, 3" dp/catback, 60# injectors, intake, 3.2 and the small supporting mods. 18* of timing and e85 - 15lbs of boost :rofl: but no knock. I'm itching to see how it does on 3.0
