i have a couple questions for aaron if he is around somewhere
1 where did you get your intake and your exhaust manifolds ported? DIY? Cost? did they require a tune? i have extras laying around i really want to use
2 how do you like the rear hightening springs?
3 How is the Ported TB working for you?
4 with that mods list i gotta ask what you put down on a dyno or at the track

Thanks ahead of time

1. I got my intake ported by JeremyF along with my TB for 300 but now its 400. I had my exhaust manifold coated and ported by gessler for around 600. A tune wasn't required but it did help support the mods
2. I like the springs in the back, they do help with lauching, however lowering of the front would help out alot
3. JeremyF did a moderate port on my TB so I didn't have any problems but others have had problems with too heavy of a port on our cars
4. I haven't had a chance to run her at the track or a dyno but I do run consist high 12's on my dashhawk, I've yet to master the lauch.
Hope this helps you out.

nice i had sent out my tb for porting by new era perfromance so we will see how that works out if it throws a tune or not my next mods are going to be getting the intake and exhaust manis ported since they seem to get huge gains for the price rear hightening springs are on the list too

Anyone have a good idea where to buy cheap, lightly used TBs and mani's? I checked FleaBay and there's nothing.

Hey Aaron, I live in Killeen. I go to Academy once a month or so, you should come sometime. I'd like to check out your Monte in person. I'm going on Sunday if the rain stops.
