Pretty simple to install. Don't think you will really notice any gains though.

That's a good deal a plog and crossover for $100!

I know you cant always believe what you hear. But it says under zzperformance a gain of 10-15 hp. Just wondering. Probably wont donit if its not worth it. Mine is n/a 3800. It does look good on yours though.

It's more of a supporting mod. If you already had an intake, plus some rockers or something that would increase flow, then increasing the output can free up HP that is getting choked back.

But on a 100% stock engine, might not be worth it for any gains.

I'm running a powerlog and like it.

Here is a pic of mine... Can't say for sure it added horsepower, however the throttle did become noticeably more responsive...... I am following your lead Mike and ordered the ER Rockers from ZZP, can't wait to get them in...

I too am running a power log and it was part of a larger scale grouping of mods.

The other catch is when a vendor says how much HP gain, is that on a bone stock car? Also, where in the power band is it? The gains are normally not across the entire band or not across equally.

But what everyone DOES want is a gain you can feel in the ol' Butt Dyno!
