    Tweaking my Stage II

    I'm sure I dont want to go with a stage III because I dont want to go into the motor to do the valve train. But I would like to get the most out of my stage II. I'm looking into the freebie mods already, but I wouldnt mind doing a few other mods that wouldnt require major work. What do you guys recomend besides leaving it Stock

    You can install a better S/C wheel for more boost. A green wheel for instance or a Riva S3 S/C . you will need to upgrade the fuel injectors and repitch the prop to take advantage of the new found power. That would be your best bang for buck at this point without going into the motor.

    I agree, get that Stage 2 wheel out of there and upgrade.

    In order to upgrade the wheel, wouldnt I need to upgrade the injectors then needing the ECU and valvetrain ?

    Nope you can upgrade the injectors and wheel without an ECU

    No for your set up all you need is 42lb injectors. BUT if you were to do the Riva Ecu later on you would need the valvetrain upgrade as well as #50 injectors.

    Better acceleration throughout the RPM range and better top end.

    Better midrange pull and better top end. I just did the same thing... went to the RR wheel, and I'm getting the #42's... the difference is very nice. I can't imagine what the S3 wheel pulls like.
