After spending countless hours searching on forums and searching part stores online, I have found a shop to do all the thinking and fixing for me.

http://www.speedtek.net/

I called and discussed my goals and this is what we came up with. We are scheduling this in 3 different phases due to the cost.

Phase 1:

BBK High Flow X Pipe Kit= $399.00
BBK Long Tube Headers= $549.00
Installed= $400.00

Total Bill with out taxes= $1,348.00

Phase 2:

Ford Racing Gears 3.73= $189.00
Installed= $250.00
Diablosport Tuner= $419.00
Program Installed= $ 50.00

Total Bill with out taxes= $908.00

Phase 3:

Procharger= $4,100.00
Intercooler= $1,500.00
Non Platinum Plugs= $Included
Injectors Up grade= $299.00
Fuel Pump Up Grade= $Included
Installed= $1,500.00

Total Bill with out taxes= $7,399.00


I will be able to pay phase 1 and 2 with cash and I will have to get a signature loan or pay with a credit card for phase 3. I asked him about a throttle body and plenum and he said to wait and see what we are pushing after the other gets done. What do you guys think? How much rwhp after all mods completed?

You're really gonna want a new plenum and throttle body especially with the blower installed. I would go with a 75mm throttle body and whatever plenum you like the looks of because they all deliver within +/- 2 rwhp of each other on an N/A car. I don't see it being incredibly different on a blown car.

Thats what I told him, he said "they buy top of the line prochargers directly from procharge factory and refuse to purchase and install any thing less." Can you check around? I hate to think I would be getting ripped off when there the top dogs in Dallas and back there work 100%. But, what do i know....

You should find out what to buy from them and purchase it yourself and have it shipped to their shop. Insist on being present when all the packages are opened.

Your money but I'd do phase II first

I agree do phase 2 first. I would think about subframes and suspension work also. I think they're raping you on the procharger and the labor sounds a little high to me, but it might not be for your area, depends what shops are getting.

Go to racedirect.com (when the site comes back up) you can get a procharger W/3 core for about $3500 I think(cheapest I've found). As for the labor I looked into having a V2 installed on my car and it was 800-1000 for the install without aftercooler. I've since decided to do it myself. Do some research before you spend that kind of money. They may know what they're doing but nobody is going to look after your finances like you. I'll post up some links for S/C when I get off work. I'm sure Meatball has something he always seems to have a database of web info handy.

BTW, I agree with Meatball and srsfunk do stage 2 first

Goodluck

In fact, personally, I would do stage 2, then 3, then 1. That way you feel a power gain from each stage. It's frustrating to me when you spend money on your car and know the new stuff is there but don't have a big grin on your face from it.

I agree. #2 should be first. It will be the most noticeable difference. Then 3 then 1. You will enjoy stage 2 the most for the money.

Sorry the procharger will be the most noticeable difference of course. But for the money spent you will be more satisfied without having as spent as much for stage 2.

Diablosport Predators are $300-$350. It takes more button clicks to type in this post than it is to install the tune. Not $50 worth. Bring it to me. I'll install it for free.

Check a local board, dfwstangs.net. You'll find many professional mechanics that will install gears for a lot less than $189 + $250. More like $300-$350 out the door. You'll also find feedback on Speedtek.

I didn't look at the pricing on the other phases but I'm sure you can so easily beat those on your own.
