maybe compared to stock, but overall, the numbers just seem fairly weak, I would expect something in the 500 plus range for lift.....

i hated having the alero as a project and dd, it is so much easier when alero is just a project and if it's down i don't have to worry about getting to and from places.......

Funds are fine i was just brain storming ideas and i might go with the M62.The manifold wont be a problem and id like to have instant boost i still have to look into the max hp out put of the M62 before i got making any definite choices.Id like to here peoples thoughts on it but i dont want to hear "turbos are way better cause i like them" id like FACTS im shooting for 350-400whp with full suporting mods like meth injection,3inch exhaust,a/w h/e,stand alone,suspension & drive train upgrades.

stand alone suspension? as in you don't have to hold them, don't they always stand alone...

also if you are doing a hEaton with a custom manifold why not look into different blowers? whipple i may suggest.. so much more effecient and they thrive on high boost, think 18-25psi....

also please no matter what blower you use, try to integrate a w2a intercooler before you resort to meth injection..

also look into e85 tuning, race gas for pump gas price
