SS/SC Stage Kits

Im interested in getting a stage 2 kit for my car, i want more perofrmance but i dont want to risk reliability too much. How are these things? Stage 3? its still an everyday driver keep in mind. Also, what pully sizes and injectors should i run?

well there are multiple stage kits out there... ottp, zzp, and gms2 are the most common. it's all gonna be in the tune that makes it reliable or not. just get a good tuner and do whatever pulley you want. if you go lower than a 3.0, i'd suggest cooling mods though.

Opt. B helps bleed air from the cooling system. So it makes the cooling system more efficient, but you will still need the addition of a larger heat exchanger & dual pass to really combat additional heat. Unless you plan to a run a meth setup.

So I stage 3 would be just as reliable as a stage 2 with the right supporting mods?

You don't need both. Either go E-85 if it is available, or meth if not.

Def look into a highflow header/exhaust manifold & downpipe to complete your exhaust system.

If you do meth, you will only need the 60 lb injectors. Just an Fyi.

Search around, and research a bit. 100%METH is a good member to talk to about the topic as well.
