I emailed centerforce today to see what their lead time was. Keep in mind that I've got an auto though, so I'm less vested in this information than you guys with the sticks are.

Don't forget guys, one of the things that really makes a difference in these cars is IAT location, the colder it can be keep the better these cars run. That is why we are awaitin on the vararam kit.

You can have Vince at Trifecta remove some of the torque management for what ever you want. Many have 10% removed in the D mode and 30% removed in the sport mode. Plus I have my first gear delayed from 8 mph to 15 mph for shifting into 2nd.

Adrenalin, I also have the V6. Freeing up the exhaust will give you more HP and improve your gas milage. I have the BBK long tube Headers with their Low /Res Cats. I replaced the Mufflers for Magnaflows and also installed the BBK Cold Air Intake. I also cut about a 2' wide section off the Rubber strip in the back so that Air has a place to exhaust from under the hood. I took a thermistor and measured the Heat by the Ram Air with and without the Rubber Strip and found it running much cooler with the ruber strip out. My car now sounds great and I have no problem getting rubber in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear. I will be checking the HP shortly, I'll let you know the results.
