Default Cobb Stage 3 Power Package

Does anyone have an opinion about this package? I have been looking around and doing some math and this appears to be the most cost effective option, eventhough it will cost a bundle all at once (~$4300).

How are the individual Cobb components included like in terms of gains? (cobb stage one heads with street performer camshafts, equal-length headers and cat with coating, cold air intake, catbacks, crankshaft power pulley w/ belts). Experience with any/all?

Has anyone bought this package? Installed it by yourself?

WHERE CAN I FIND INSTRUCTIONS ON REPLACING HEADS/CAMS??

Any input is appreciated
-Josh

I did the catback and cold air with a friend, opted not to get the crank pulley cause I didnt want an underdriven one, went w/the perrin, and I have the equal length headers and cat on the way.
No one has installed this yet because the headers arent even out yet AFAIK. The first batch is supposed to be out around december.
I love the cat back and cai, they're awesome and easy to install.

Thanks BlackandBue. Have you noticed any performance gains? Butt Dyno?

Has anyone done the stage one heads or street performer camshafts or both??? Should I just have them installed at a shop? How much would that cost? If I could acquire an engine lift is it still really hard?

It can be done either with the engine in the car(kind of hard) or with it out(easier). I am installing the Cobb stage II heads in the near future, but because I have nohere to do the work, I am actually taking the car to Cobb. I am also on the list for the first batch of heads.

Once it is all done, I will have Cobb CAI, Cobb headers/high flow cat and Stromung(who actually manufactures Cobb's exhaust) cat back. I am going to put the car on their dyno and see what it gets with that set up. But there is a 2-3 month waiting list on headwork. I was hoping to go to SLC for X-mas and see mom, but I called Cobb today and it seemed like is unlikely.

I will post dyno #'s when it is all done, but for now I can't give you much input other than I think they make the best intake on the market...

Thanks Matt. Could a not-terribly-experienced-with-internal-engine-work enthusiast install the heads? Where can I find install instructions, even just to know how its done if i don't do it myself?

So there's a waiting list for parts? (I know headers aren't out yet).
Should I order the package as soon as possible to get on line?

BlackAndBlue, how do you like the Perrin pulley? was it worth the $/ any noticeable gains, or just better throttle response?
