you might have killed some low end torque with the true dual setup. these bolt ons arent going to do much to wake up the car. im sure it is a little faster than it was before, but im not suprised that you havent noticed a huge difference.

IMHO, do exhaust on a stock car for the sound, not the performance.

the intake tube might have free'd up some horsepower, but will mostly improve your throttle responce.

no faster? Have you quarter miled or dyno'd your 'Bird since
you did all those mods? Whose chip are you using?

Remember one thing though, assuming you're running stock heads -
you're a victim of a pretty restrictive design (at least stock)
and my best GUESS is the MAX you might expect from what you've
done is maybe a 15-20rwhp increase which is not going to make
a BIG difference in performance on our heavy cars....other
opinions?

If you want a noticeable improvement, then get some 3.73 gears, and get your chip reburned. It's cheap, and you'll notice improvements on your 1/4 times.
