I installed a "new to me" SLP 85mm MAF tonight. The stock MAF is 75mm. The ass dyno doesn't feel much of a difference but they say the intake track is restricted on the LS1's so I'm sure it's not hurting anything. While driving around I did a bit of tuning with the new MAF to dial it in. It's hard to tell if it made a difference but driving the car compared to my 4.3 V6 K1500 4x4 feels like I hit warp speed when I mash the gas. The DR's do not like the cold, traction was a problem.

Somtimes you have to go to the track to see the improvement. Dont kill me for asking, but how cold is it where you are? In Ca. it has been so cold that all the citrus froze, and the leaves came off the trees because it was windy also. Citrus never loose there leaves, but when they are frozen and then it is really windy,they just snap off, at least ours did. So much for the global warming crowd.

You need the intake to see the real difference don't you like you said the intake is the bottleneck at this point?

Tire wise I can say that when it is this cold out here they just act like giant erasers. They don't even leave much on the pavement just scrubbing rubber I guess.

To complete the car I need injectors, exhaust front to back, and a Fast 90 MM intake with 90 MM throttle body. That should gain about 50-70 HP to the rear wheels.

Btw... that exhaust where I posted the pictures they want $2,500 installed, not including the $800 headers. Shocked Damn... I wish I was rich!
