Welcome to just answer Bob. First of all if the work was done right with bolt on parts i don't see any problems with these kits. as far as more power, better pipes, open air cleaner a tunable fuel injection module, Race tuner, Power commander, etc. to really wake it up large valve heads and bigger throttle body. Hope this helps with you concerns. Thanks Brian D
