I'm about to have Jpc install this exact kit for me, you have any idea what kind of rwhp your making after the install? I will be adding american racing headers with catted x pipe. Also I have 3:31's which I plan on keeping. What gears are you running? I noticed that didn't seem like you spun to much, but it was a 40 mph roll, thanks!
I'm running 3.31's as well, and I don't plan on changing them either. I don't feel like shifting more than I already have to haha. As TrueBlue stated, the headers really aren't worth it until somewhere north of 700-ish whp, unless you're planning on going for that number eventually, or just like the sound, thats quite a bit extra to spend, but it's all in what you want!
Power wise, my car should be around 600ish SAE whp, but we'll have to see once I can get it to a reputable dyno next month.
On that 40 - 140, I didn't spin much because it had been a relatively warm day (for Colorado in February). It just really depends on how warm the roads have been, sometimes it will spin all the way through the top of second and through most all of third, sometimes, like the video, I'll actually get it to hook.
Now the race with the Camaro started at 30, and I had a passenger with 3/4 of a tank of gas, gave me just enough to not really spin at the top of second and into third. During the summer, with a good tire, I'd expect not many issues in second at all, but first will probably still need some finesse.
