Very nice write up! I would have loved to have seen this two weeks ago, I just did mine and I will agree with you that the instructions that KB sends are the best by far I have ever seen. With this write up and the instructions I would have a hard time seeing anybody not being able to do this install at home. The only thing is that I think you missed was how tight it gets working by the EGR and bypast tube but not really a big issue. Glad to hear you didnt fight with the fuel line that much, I was not that lucky and it about pissed me off the most doing mine:shout:

I would have liked to had this article finished LONG ago, as it was back last year that I installed it, but I could never seem to find the time and motivation to finish it. This is the first of several articles I have put together on the GT500, the others will be up shortly.

good write up, when you said "The car does not feel really stable during acceleration and 80 MPH+"

did you mean it needed suspension or needs sticky tires ?

also, what else was done to the GT500 when dynoed ? exhaust ? headers ?

Suspension, the car even stock had a good bit of sway in the rear end. Making the car accelerate faster only made the problem worse.

No other mods besides the KB and 3" pulley for that article. The next one I will post up the graphs from headers and 3" exhaust.

Great article. I'm the one you sent the half shaft to for the 03. I have a GT500 now and I am very interested in the KB (researching blowers). I guess I may need you to help me out again. Thanks for the write-up!!!

Most excellent write-up!

Did you use the SCT Pro-Racer software when you dyno'ed it?

Is the "canned" KB tune in Pro-Racer Format?

AGAIN- Excellent How-To!!
