Nice Car!!

You said that trans has the GT 3.29? Does that mean it was converted to a non-HD diff? Or do you mean it had the chain changed to 35/35 to make a 3.29 FDR?

Also, what heat range are the plugs you put in? IMHO those E3's are a waste of money. A spark plug cannot make more power, no matter what goofy design it has. You want the heat range to be comparable to the Autolite 104.

What exhaust mods have you done? Before stepping down the pulley, get headers or at least a down-pipe and get rid of that damn u-bend, and get a high-flow cat.

Your custom tune should come AFTER all of this, otherwise you're not making the most of your mods.

I hope this helps. Not trying to shoot you down, but just throwing stuff at a car is going to lead to an empty wallet and a car that isn't what you want.

it has gt gears . also i wanted a plug that would last for a while so i went with e3's, im planning speed daddy or zzp headers in the near future. im still researching good cats because i have to do a sniffer test every year. and it needs a tune because of the shorter gearing in the new trans or it wont work properly it will keep shifting up and down and the speedometer will be off by alot .

Was the trans originally in a GT? Because the GTP's had 3.29 gears that were underdriven to reach a 2.93 ratio. If it truly has GT gears, it will have the weaker differential, yet the 1:1 drive chain, and you'll need a new axle on that side. I'd have the trans shop inspect/swap your differential and gears, if that is indeed the case.

Your tune makes sense, lol. I did forget about that. Just trying to help you make sure your mods make sense.

it was a gtp tranny but they swapped the 2.93 to the 3.29 this was a custom built tranny it has the hd diff and some other goodies lol also i made a typo above it is a single chain. the people that are installing it built it and thats where im getting the information. it also has a 245mm Torque Converter from zzp.

Look up your state law on how far tail lights have to be visible and then make sure your tail lights are visible at that length then if a cop pulls you over for your tails. Tell him that your tails are legal and if he doesn't believe you that you'll show him lol.

I've never got pulled over for mine **knock on wood** but in FL your tails have to be visible up to 500ft and mine are so that's probably why.

it illegal to tint them here period. so if i do tint them it will be vinyl and not to dark. but i think it would look good. maybe some black rims in my future too lol

I hope you're planning on an Aeroforce Scan Gauge for that pod. Best mod I've done, and I've done a good number of mods. :rofl:
