    The stock intake, according to most, is fine up to 400hp, unless you just want that sucking noise (there's a softball for ya guys). They can also be tricky, because you really want to be tuned to match. Downpipes, there's tons to chose from, I'll let someone else advise you on that cause I'm still waking up and don't remember everything I've read. I know there's different types, like bellmouth and such, but my brain isn't working enough yet to impart my recently gleaned wisdom.

    Ah yes, the pronunciation! My buddy who lives near Vegas warned me about that. How is it supposed to be said?

    Who's offering StageII for $350? Cory @ Mayhem?

    I'd include an intake on the parts list.

    Nah, no dyno required. They will log your car on WOT runs...and make adjustments to the map based on the data. Similar to e-tuning or internet tunes. Its actually easier and cheaper than dyno tuning, but may take a few days/week or so to get it 100% set perfectly cause you have to go on runs after every flash of the updated/revised map.

    No dyno is required. You simply do logging on the road instead of a dyno. The one advantage to a dyno is that you're not doing WOT pulls on public roadways. That said, every dyno tune should have some cleanup on the road once complete, which not everyone does.

    Interesting point...I never had a little road cleanup session. But my tune was flawless on paper...and felt phenomenal on the road as well.

    so then is it safe to go to a garage tuner? i would save about 150$$$. id much rather do that than pay, but i dont want any problems...

    Depends on how much experience he has. If you save $150, and that tune costs you a motor build, was it worth it?

    I don't believe Mayhem has a dyno; he tunes on the road.

    Did it just feel flawless/phenomenal or did you datalog?

    Not saying there was anything wrong with your tune (I never saw any logs to justify that claim), but many times, if not at least checked on the road after, there's some work that could be done to make it better.
