So, I have had my car since last November. Put an SLP lid on right after Christmas. Then, within the last couple of wks. I have done the following mods: Jet Hot Stainless LT's, Hooker ORY, Magnaflow catback, and an LS6 intake manifold.
Installation: I didn't install the exhaust components myself. I don't have a garage or any of the proper tools. However, I did install the LS6 intake. It was a biotch for my first the first mod I've ever installed. Took me about 8 hrs total and my hands look like I've been attacked by a rabid raccoon. That's with removing the EGR and a few other little things. The freakin shop I took it to charges a fortune but they are well recommended. The exhaust LABOR ALONE was $952! They charged me an additional $744 for the dynotune. They did great work but crap that was expensive.
Impression: I reached 323.7 hp and 323.8 lb/ft of torque on the Mustang dyno. The guy sales pitched me about how the Mustang dyno was more accurate and most others actually add about 10%. I'd like to see if that's true. Overall, I'm pretty happy with everything. My car's putting out about 400hp at the crank now so I can't complain. Just gotta wait for my next step (rearend, clutch, tranny work), which is probably about 2 yrs. out now. Then, on to more power!
$744 for a tune!!!?? WOW bro did they offer a free kick in the nuts after you payed for it? I just put LT's/ORY and a bunch of other stuff on mine followed by a tune. I payed $400 for my dyno tune w/ 5 pulls. Either way if it's running good and you are enjoying it then thats all that matters in the end.

Yeah, should've went to TSP here in Lubbock, but I figured I would just get it done while my car was in that shop. I think it was so expensive because they're not very experienced and therefore not very fast which equals more expensive but they do good work. Took them almost a full day to hook it up and make the bung for the O2 sensor.
