C&L meter = fail... More power to you if you get it to work though. I'd look into some long tube headers or heads next. Seems to be coming along pretty well though young Padawan.

Just out of curiosity, where do you think you've picked up 50 hp?

Seems like you've upgraded the intake and exhaust. Neither of which makes a big difference till the motor needs it. But you're ready for it to need it...

IMO the biggest upgrade you have listed is your gears. Probably made more difference then everything else combined, and didn't add a single hp :)

You should have saved your money then. I hope you have problems since you didn't listen. Seriously. "It was 200 dollars less, so it has to be just as good".
That's harsh dude.

That's harsh dude.
Been there myself 10 years ago along with countless others with that junk maf. We all warned him in another one of his threads so it's not like this is a revelation. He said it wasn't the C&L and that it was a BBK one. He wasn't going anywhere near the C&L one - in his words. Now he can't believe how his car can't have 50 more rwhp than it does with a couple minor mods, and he's got that intake for sale already. That's why I'm done with this kid.

would throwing on aftermarket shorties actually help?!
No. If you are going to spend money on exhaust go long tubes. They can be a PITA to install but are well worth it.
