GOGO Stage 1 modified+studs= happiness!!!!

So I had some time that allowed for me to get some studs installed. Being that studs end up digging deep into the motor I got all the other mods/repairs all done at the same time. Oil cooler, GOGO manifold, STC, etc, etc were all done. Strokers Unlimited (Adam) took on the task and the results were worth the effort!!

The truck is DIFFERENT in all the good ways you could you want. The best example is running 25+PSI of boost at only half throttle. The truck flat out FLOWS air running hard and pulling smooth. Additional findings demonstrated better downshifting than before when running the PowerMax on the stock manifold. The whistle seems a bit louder at the same time loosing the deeper V8 sound in the exhaust. BTW I didn't even update the tuning I was running before.

Give me a week to see if there's any MPG gains/losses.

A big THANKS to Adam for all the work done at Strokers Unlimited.

OH yea. I'm hoping to get some additional feedback from the current Batmowheel users. Right now if the midrange got better I'll need more money for fuel and tires!!

There's a few reviews over on the army and a few here we've done a few and it makes the powermax more responsive

Re: GOGO Stage 1 modified+studs= happiness!!!!

Your truck definately runs very nice Brian! Now you have that warm fuzzy along with a sense of security. Good to have Adam and his shop in the area.

The baymowheel should be in this week. I will let you know how it changes my Powermax. ;-)

Re: GOGO Stage 1 modified+studs= happiness!!!!

What was the process for getting the Stage 1 manifold?

I sent Doug an email a few months ago but it was right during his accident, so I didn't want to bother them again since it will be a while before I could get one.
