    did you buy it with the v2?? cuz if you bought a v2, you just wasted like 300 dollars.

    yep, but i dont wanna pay like 200 for an icebox when i have cai thats ok i dont have the biggest budget but my plans are:

    Turbo
    Stand alone
    ITR tranny
    Wieght reduction(strip back seats, jack spare, oem cf hood, moderatly lightwieght racing seats)
    my goal is to run it at about 12psi Dialy driven

    sweet! :thumbsup:


    BTW, the reason the Ice Box makes more power than a standard CAI is because 1) its plastic and doesnt transfer the engine heat to the intake airflow 2) the filter is located closer to the throttle body, like a short ram.

    you can get by around reason #1 by wrapping your intake in heat reduction tape or just plain duct tape (which wont look as good).

    i dont think i'd run the itr tranny on a turbo setup...if you are making any sort of power you will be sitting at the line spinning the tires through the first three gears...personally i like the ls tranny for daily driving, good gas mileage

    the gsr tranny is a nice median

    Black SI's are bad luck I am telling you. I have to agree though, you will need some more mods to run 12 psi daily.

    get the ls tranny over any other. youre gonna need some larger injectors bud. yeah, shit isnt cheap man. the stand alone will cost you almost as much as a turbo kit.

    I only wanted an ITR tranny cuz i want the LSD anf final drive, installing that on the stock tranny would be such a bitch it would be easier jut to get a new one.
    I know this shit i expensive, i can get a stand alone for 1000, dunno how much a turbo kit is gunna cost yet, then cost of tuning, im not doing all this at once, ill do tranny work after the turbo stuff.

    You want the ITR tranny with LS 5th gear, to keep things reasonable on the highway. And if your not pushing more than 250-275 hp, with the right driving, you wil be fine for traction with the right suspension and tires.
