haha, just read that commotion... i do like your setup though. i figured i'd get the tuner last and it could kinda be tuned around the mods.

I agree, intake, exhaust, pulley, tuner, then rockers. You can always get a tune for the rockers after you've gotten it done.

switch the exhaust and intake around and you have a good order.....the reason for swapping the exhaust before the intake is the stock intake takes in a good amount of air, where the stock exhaust is really restrictive......an intake is only as good as the exhaust on a vehicle......you can take in all the air you want, but you can only put out so much exhaust...

the tunes are NOT set to a pulley......there is no provision in a tune for a pulley since the pulley only takes drag off the crank.....
