Hooliganism backroads stuff! Hopefully a track day or 2 this year but they're all far from me.(Ft Hood should get a track here so soldiers and people around here have a safer place to ride.)

And just plain making it a more powerful/fun ride

Im just saying after 1000+ is spent it sucks to see +7 hp on a dyno. The difference over all is noticeable though. I have very little faith that the stacks are gonna show more than 1-2 hp. They are for up near redline. The gear wont affect afr. They are gonna do the pulls in 5th. It will pull like its in 4th. with the gear.

How large of a shot did you go with?
And I would be assuming a wet kit?

I think Max ment do you use it for keeping afr's in check.

The stacks are supposed to be for the 5-8rpm range which is what I'm looking for, and the gear is to keep me closer to that range at slower speeds. < Am I right? As for the tune I am more interested in getting everything smoothed out compared to gaining hp. I'm sure I'll get a few but I really not an issue Smoother is faster right?

Smoother is what it sounds like, smoother delivery.
Rather than you cruising along then all of the sudden at like 5 grand you sudden have this random chunk of power.

Basically so you don't look like you just hit 'v-tec'
