Since, I am about to boost and thinking about keeping the GM Step Transmission.

I am planning on installing IPT Manual Valve Body. Also, thinking about getting a Performance Torque Converter as well.

The New Converter stall speed will need to be at least 500 RPM higher than the beginning of the powerband of your camshaft.

Anyone knows the PowerBand of the ZHP Cams? Would the PowerBand be the same when I Boost?

Not hardly. Our guys don't get "extra oil". 7 quarts is overkill enough when most of them only take 6.9 quarts when none dry. Which most aren't. Your friends dealership must be n00bs. Lol jk

Nice!

So Stage 2.5 uses ZHP cams? Can't you upgrade to some FI cams, run even more boost and get more power?
No Sir. The .5 on the AA kit is Meth. My car is a ZHP. The intake cam is good for F/I but my exhaust cam could be bigger for best results.

Look forward to results, I think 400+ whp is possible with what you have planned without too much trouble - the limiting factors that you will run into are injectors and increased belt slip / wear with smaller pulleys.

I covered around 7k on my level 2 setup and made 365whp, (standard level 2 pulley and Fi cams) I never had any issues and it was a beast.

Sorry for the slow updates. Mid-terms been kicking my a$$ lately. Been studying alot.

Picked up the m3 rear end Tuesday at the Hub Station.



Here is some T-Bar Clamps. I bought to replace those wimpy worm gear clamps.



Also, waiting on Viral to get me some quotes on some parts I wanted. So I can get this Project Started. Looks like I might not make it to MFest. :( but we will see...

Nice clamps, where did you get them?

These would be much easier than fussing lining up a flat head screwdriver with the slot. I could just blast them off with my air wratchet.
