    Hello all,

    I am looking for thoughts and suggestions on what I should do next to my 2019 sho. Currently I have a 3 bar map sensor a 170 degree thermostat k&n cold air intake and I have the boomba bov installed. With a 93 octane tuned from unleashed tuning on a live wire ts+.

    ps I am somewhat new to all this and all the advice and help will be greatly appreciated.

    Anthony DiCunzolo trans mounts, gearhead intercooler,and xdi hpfp all would be a good next steps. In the order listed would be my way of going about it personally!

    Just the mounts themselves make it feel like it has more power to the butt dyno, improves shift feel and overall smoothness and butt dragy says the 0-60mph is quicker.

    Just a good e30 tune really quickens the car up and makes it sound....better. More like a raging bull like it is

    Really the only things left besides turbos are HPFP, Transmounts, IC, E30 tune. I would suggest the transmounts before going any farther than where you are.

    When the time comes, the C63S sedan will take the place of my SHO.

    Down pipes. New down pipes + better fuel + better intercooler will likely allow you to max the stock turbos.

    Past that, I advise saving money to replace a busted trans.

    Once you have a tune and GH intercooler, are you right on the edge of the HPFP limits? Should an upgrade be in your short term plans at that point? What are the HPFP options? XDI and LMS?

    You pretty much hit the limit on the stock HPFP if you run e30+, but you can run 91/93 pretty high on boost before you "need" the xdi. You could also run meth, that will help not work the pump so hard.

    You just answered a question I’ve been on the verge of asking. What’s the benefit to the trans mounts? I think that just jumped ahead of the shifter interior upgrade.

    It should really be the first upgrade in my opinion or at least between tune and intercooler.
    Dont get it twisted those mounts shake the car and need greased often. But they are stiff as stiff can be. Motor cradle staying put makes it feel like more power because axel output is not shared with a cradle twist.
    There is a theory that they increase whp but not crank hp. Its been a theory since the hockey puck days but i havent tested it and no one else i know ever did

    I'm waiting for them to be available right now. He said hopefully the 25th. I have put most of my other stuff on hold while I wait for them.
