After a CAI, efans and a tune what would the next logical step be for a daily driver? A stall? trans cooler? underdrive pulley? trying to figure out the next way to add some power but not sure what should come next....

Cooler before more power and especially a stall....my two cents

Ma'am have you ever seen a cat skeleton in a tree? Exactly it will come down.

If you are on a budget circle d and 262 have some inexpensive verters that do a good job. But def get that cooler. I've never been a big fan of ud pulleys.

Get a cooler and vette servos to help with the life of trans, vette servos are only like $20.

but dont the servos make the shifts harder?? thought that may actually harm the tranny...

so what converter would go best with a pcmforless trans cooler?? (front mount or brake duct mount recommended??) 262 has something to go with this?

i assume the tune would need adjustment after these two...and since im 262uned it would prob work to get a verter from him

You don't have to match a verter to a cooler. Vette servos stiffen shifts and won't do harm. The 3 4 billet servos in some peoples opinion have contributed to output shaft failure. I think Steve evil06ss had it happen. Pm Alvin 262 or circle d they will all hook ya up with parts and info.

hey Joe for some fairly cheap insurance i would say do the tranny cooler next. Really no gains from it other than piece of mind knowing you're keeping her cooler.
I have the brake duct kit from Jetttstream on mine the install was a snap and it gets much cooler air being down there.
I myself have heard bad things about UD pulleys so i wouldn't do that personally. I wanna do a stall too, but aint got the balls to do it to a stock trans

I went with the brake duct cooler, it seemed to make more sense, it won't block airflow to the radiator like the front mount would.

Ud pulley money better spent elsewhere imho..plus lots of folks have had issues. Not a big gain either. That money could be spent on 1.8 rockers or towards cam and springs.
