Looking for a GT500 power package...

Recommended Posts

Hello All - Just purchased an 08 GT500 and looking at many different power packages between $1100-$1200 and want to know what others are using and recommend. I see 3 or 4 different ones such as C&L, JLT, and Steeda. They all come with a cold air intake, 2.6 pulley, idler, and programmer. Are these legit, do they work, anything I need to know? Any recommendations would be appreciated. Any I should stay away from using? - Thanks.

I highly recommend VMP: http://www.vmptuning.com/store/index.php, or JLT: http://jlttruecoldair.com/ZenCart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_40_41&products_id=115.

 

Personally, I like JLT's CAI w/ VMP's 2.59 pulley and 90mm idler. I had/have BamaChips, Brenspeed, and JLT's tunes. All are very good, but I prefer VMP's tunes on a SCT Tuner.

 

“Are these legit, do they work...?" Absolutely! A Stage 2 really wakes the car up yieilding about 100 extra hp... Actually, you can't go wrong with any of the site vendors.

 

Edited... BTW, congrats on the car and welcome to TS. Pics?

I went with the VMP 92 octane performance tune with the SCT tuner and the FRPP CAI. I did not do the pully but the tune is included when I did the CAI tune. So if I decide to do the pully in the future I won't have to upload a new tune.hood007.jpg

Thanks for the info "SteeltownStang", its truly appreciated. I just uploaded a pic for my avatar and will be uploading some more shortly. Another question, are you happy with your exhaust or have you found others you like? I've owned 5 mustangs in my life time all with 2-Chamber Flowmaster's and most with no CATS. I was really happy with it but I want something really throaty and load without removing the CATS, etc.

I did the VMP tune with the C&L CAI, 91 octane tune, oem looking pulley and idler 2 years ago on my 2007. Has run perfect from day 1. Great added horsepower, and I get 23 mpg crusing 80 mph on highway!!! Can't say the same for mpg in town, but hey, who cares!!! Heavy foot!! LOL I think it is a GREAT package.
