Default Finally ordered DiabloSPort Predator

Well now that it's ordered it is the final of the first three I have K&N CAI and Flowmaster 40 dual exhaust,,, so.... what's next for fairly inexpensive mods for perforamnce can be done,,????

I know about the 180 thermostat which are tricky to find locally, and about a e-fan which i have no idea where to find,, but is there something thats not a new rear end, gears, shift kit or anything strickly meant for racing just more power performance etc,,,

I have asked before but hadent order programmer yet and had responses regarding 180 tstat and e-fan which i am still looking for,,, thanks for any response,,, will be sure to put up pics and video when i get the programmer,


p.s. here are some pics of the CAI when i installed it a while back

as far as the 180 tstat, it's whatever you prefer. the motor will run at a lower temp, giving you a "little" more power, like less than 5 hp. but the trade off is the motor obviously doesnt reach operating temp so it cant be as efficient so mpg will go down. i personally would steer clear from it because in the long run the motor isnt going to like the temp change.

a flex-a-lite 183 efan would be a great little addition. lets the motor warm up quicker, and get power at all rpms since you don't got the stock clutch fan robbing power from the crank. I plan on getting one of these and would suggest you take a look at them.

you might also want to consider a good set of long tube headers if you already haven't as well.

hope this helps you out a little, im sure more members will come along with some more help.
