Relax hes from Pennsyltuckey. If you dont have the means to get your car tuned then you are stuck with just buying the GM stage 2 from www.crateenginedepot.com and installing it at the nearest Chevy dealership near you. Which can be found at www.chevrolet.com.

goodluck getting 245hp out of stage 2, let alone 300hp keeping the m62. just read around here first and not trying to sound like a dick but use the search button and build your knowledge base and you will find out what people have done that works and what people have done that doesnt work.

Gm stage 3 with the 50 shot of nitrous can yield about 311 (whp?). But then you should get the cooling mods like the dual pass with option B. Oh and kiss your engine warranty goodbye too.

I was thinking about buying a used stage 2 kit but the guy said that there is no program with it. Can i install this kit and still be able to take it to a chevy dealer and have them calibrate it even tho i dnt have the calibration that came with that spacific kit?

Cool to get it right from the dealer but nothing beats a dyno tune. I have seen many GM Stage 2 kits dyno better than stock but still pretty poor. Canned tune tweaked on the dyno is WELL worth the money.

If the engine blows it was either driver error or the car was ragged out its whole life. Trannies usually blow from wheel hop or running slicks.drag radials.

One guy I know ran st2, 2.8, full exhaust, intake, and a 50 shot for over a year. It finally went because of user error(spun/caught traction and blew #4 piston) but he probably ran over 20 bottles through it. He drove his car very aggressively but wasnt an idiot about it.
