Drag bags are a must have. Less squating and no more boatyness when shifting.

You might want to check out Diablew tuning for the predator. Lewis is awesome, you will gain a lot more HP from doing a log and then sending it to him. He will make a custom tune for your car.

Just the normal tune built into the predator will only get you 5-10hp. But a custom one will give you 20-25hp.

06MonteSS is his screen name on this forum.
http://www.diablewtune.com/

He will do a cruise tune and WOT tune, so you will gain 1 to 1.5mpg better mileage also. That what I like about doing logs and actually monitoring the car under real driving conditions.

The tuning shops don't adjust the tune for crusing.

The Diablo stuff is decent, but I would find a tuner who uses HP Tuners. The HPT software is much more in-depth and covers more tuning parameters.

Yes a HPTuners tune with the dyno and a good tuner will get you like 5 more HP then the diablew tune, but it will cost you way more. Plus he already has the predator.

Springs are not enough to loose the squat, hop and boatyness. I installed Pedders drag springs and they were not enough. Had to put the drag bags in also. Some big bore shocks may help too. Dang IRS rear!!! Ok it rides nicer then a rustang.

No but springs are better than having bags. I have both right now, and unless youre doing some serious racing I think its all you need

I have been running stock springs with bags for 4 years now. Someday I'll get some springs but 1.5 60's say the band-aid is working well

Can you PM me where you got everything? My troop just bought an 06 yesterday and knows nothing about cars. I told him I'd look for some headers, cutouts, and a handheld tuner and put them on for him.
