New Intake again!

I decided to buy another MAC Intake. So far so good. On with the pictures. Now I just need to convince my self I don't need anymore performance mods...

Before:

I have spent around $3500 ish so far and if that is just touching the surface I am gonna be seriously broke/in debt. I do plan to continue to spend to much money on it, O well.

Thanks for the compliments! I love it so far.

Looks good! how does it sound?

On a side note, i've spent a little less than half of what you have in yours. And i've got it almost like I want it.

That's the next performance thing I want, but I really need to save for tires and getting my 4:10's installed.

Don't put any more ideas in my head(as far as the SC). I have 15x8's and 4:10's are under my bed waiting to be installed and when my tires wear out I will be getting 32's. I despirately want a spindle lift!

you will never be done modding
i thought i was done until i decided i want to remove the vinyls and get it painted and i would like some sort or programmer to go with the intake and exhaust, oh and i want it lifted to, but dont know what to get, and if i lift it i need bigger tires and rimes and........
see the list just keeps going on and on
Looks good by the way-helps gas mileage alot if you can keep your foot off the floor

I know I will never be done modding. I will try to keep my foot off the flor in a week or so, I gotta have fun with it for a while. How much did it help you? I really love the performance gains! Helped me get up a hill quick to tripple digits pretty quick last night.

Once you start modding it can't be stopped. I can't count the times I've said I wouldn't buy anything more for my truck and I'm currently saving for a 302 swap.
