I'm ready to do a CAI and a Cat-back system. I'm going to dyno the car before and after each mod. Anyone have any idea how long I should give the computer to adjust itself to the mod before doing the next dyno? I know some people have strong opinions about disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses...

Got my Dyno done at Leading Edge Performance. They primarily work GM, so there was a learning curve for both of us. First we had to figure out how to get a timing signal for the torque feed. Turns out the blue wire to the coil pack is the one. Next, we weren't sure if turning off ESP would allow the run--it did, although some cars apparently still won't. Next, we assumed 4th gear is 1:1 and tried a run in 4th. However, we ran into the speed limiter and that set dropped out at 4k RPM. So we did two runs in 3rd gear; the first showed 319HP/344FP, the second after a 10 minute cool down showed 328/356. These numbers won't work for absolute comparisons, but I'm primarily using these numbers for a benchmark. I'm off to get my exhaust done this morning.

Exhaust is done and it sounds good. I've noticed some drone at about 1300RPM when in MDS, but it's not bad. I'm going to wait 'til next week to re-dyno. I'm taking a 200 mile trip, so that should give the computer time to settle.

Got my second dyno and only gained 1 hp. The weather was considerably different and that could be a factor. It doesn't really matter, though, 'cause even if it lost power it sounds too good to take back off. I tried to install the K&N CAI but it doesn't fit. (see pic.) Went to Dodge to get the Mopar CAI, but they sold me the wrong one and strangely enough it didn't fit either I can pull the stock intake out it under a minute and put it back in just over one
