If you're talking about performance bolt-ons, right now, there's not a ton, but enough to get you 25-30whp, i would think:

Intake: K&N and CAI Cold Air Intakes ($230-270); Intense Fender Well intake ($100); (FWI does not work on Imp/MC (?))

Exhaust: Magnaflow Exhaust for Impala/MC ($540-600); Hogan Downpipe with High-Flow cat for LS4 engines ($350);

Tuning: HPTuners software ($unk); Diablo Predator Handheld tuner ($300-350); Can-tuned ECM/TCM from Vector Motorsports (Detroit area - $400 + $400 core) and Westers Garage (Jersey? - $unk);

I would really love to see an underdrive pully set (w/ the alt. pulley), F.A.S.T. or Typhoon intake manifolds (if the ones they make for the LS1/LS6 won't fit), A bigger throttle-body, and some high-quality longer-tube (not the shorties) headers (prefferably w/ equal length primaries) turbo kit w/ a front mount intercooler would be cool too.

Would the Diablosport be worth the $300-399 everyones asking for it? And does anyone know what the diameter of-the magnaflow cat back kit is?

a hood with a nice functional scoop on it (and maybe louvers or heat extractors) for the SS's would be really cool as well.

Hey Drew - welcome to the forums.

There is a couple of 5 page threads on the Diablo and the Magnaflow, as well as cross discussions on alternatives to both.

I'd search for them for you, but don't have the time right now ...

Default STS Turbo for LS4

Hey guys new to the forum. I am the proud owner of an 07 Monte Carlo SS. I also owned an 06 Monte Carlo SS for about 3 weeks. It lost its life to a Ford Expedition last October. May it rest in peace.

I talked to Freddy Polo at STS today. He said that they do not have interest in developing a kit specifically for our cars. He did say that the stage 2 kit could be had for around 3000 dollars plus a 200 - 300 dollars more for some custom work. I have looked under my car and I do not see a good route to run the intake tube and avoid the exhaust without going under the cradle. It seems that would create a ground clearance issue. A rear turbo seems like a good bang for the buck. Unfortunately, that is a lot of money to spend at one time. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hogan Performance is making a part (a crossover pipe after the exhaust manifold) since we do not have headers for our cars. They are currently working on this, and after Curt gets the dyno results, it will be posted for sale. Remember, when you order from Hogan, they custom build the part for your car, no pieces just sitting and waiting to be ordered.

Yes! A crossover pipe would be the first exhaust mod that I would make. I really don't see any point in doing a cat back if I can't get rid of the restrictions up front. Do please keep us posted!
I hope that the pipes are ceramic coated.

Magnacharger!!! I would be 1st in line 2buy1 I mean if looked at trouble Magnasun went thru developing for the 04-06 GTO its no wonder why it carries a 6k price tag. but our transvers LS4 engines would be a easyer task. Design it sorta like 97-03 GTP's but ofcourse bigger&better than M90's. The supercharger would run all on one belt instead of two thus creating MORE POWER than drag. The supercharger would have a built in 90 millameter TB. This is a strait forword simple design that should be half the price of the GTO's Build me a MAGNACHARGER kit 4my GXP!!! so I can PLAY!!

^^^How about a magnacharger and a beefed up trans combo. . .because I would be scared to do one without the other.

Once you start talking about going Turbo or Supercharger, you will need to upgrade the Tranny. Its just like the guys with the L67 motors. Once you get about ~275WHP, you need to start saving up for a new tranny or upgrade. You have no idea how many guys Ive seen try to throw on a smaller pulley or a S/C/Turbo kit on their car and BOOM.. Another tranny bites the dust.
