Low end power...

For a GTS 6spd, what mods would help the torque / low end power?

Heard the Injen decreases the low end a tad bit... any proof (dynos) of this?

Why would you want to increase the low end torque? During drag and autox with my GTS, i'm always in lift.

I launch at 5k and I'm never below 4500.

You should be worried about traction more than anything, especially if you want to improve the 60'. thumbsup

Without traction, you aren't going anywherE!

Hmm, isn't launchin at that high pretty harsh on the trans though?

Another issue, what would you recommend for traction besides better tires? (That costs too much money...)

Thanks Bro, that's what I'm here for thumbsup

TRD and Qualife makes one too! They're about 700-900 dollars a piece, not very cheap. If you do go this route, get a JDM TRD clutch and JDM TRD Flywheel and save instalation money because they'll have to take apart your transmission. While it's apart, you might as well upgrade as much as possible right? Expect to pay a pretty penny

Holy crap, that's what? like 3Gs for the install and all?
Too much money for my blood... is it really worth it? I mean 3Gs and for 3 things..? eek I understand the Clutch... b/c it would help for daily driving, but LSD and the flywheel would really be more for performance purposes and don't really contribute to daily drivin performance does it? confused

Man, that's pretty crazy My head is spineyes from thinkin about it...

Yes it is very expensive. After you do get the clutch/flywheel and LSD, your car would be a BEAST!

I took the cheap way out and just had the JDM TRD Clutch KIT w/throw out bearing installed. I'll save my pennies for the LSD, flywheel and install for another day.
