C5 monster charger wheel
I have a 2005 RXP and I was wondering if any of you have done the C5 monster wheel upgrade along with a aftermarket intercooler. Is it worth the money? What kind of gains did you see from it? Will the stock internals hold up in the long run?

For what the C5 cost you can buy the x-charger new. the c5 and X-charger are very close in boost, practically identical. x-charger has the latest internal parts already 08+. This will also align you for a mini rude upgrade in the future.
With an X charger and external IC. You will need a RRFRP and 42lb injectors. Set base pressure to 60psi. You will need a 15/20 impeller too. Don't forget check out the 4" intake, so that SC can breath. This set up will give you the biggest bang for the $$$$ and is very reliable. Replace that stock grate with something better, pitch the 15/20 for 8100 RPM and you'll have to potential to go 76-77mph.
