Careful, though I have respect for the Halltech products, (I've owned two of the regular stinger systems), I believe the reason the SSM filter was discontinued for C5 application was a problem with it wreaking havoc on the the MAF and throwing constant computer codes. Not everyone whose installed the SSM on a C5 has had this problem, many people have had great results, it's an anomoly (read:crapshoot) but the problem is known. Funny you mention 'best suited for Z06', again, if I'm remembering correctly, the worst of the cases were in Z06's as the Z's MAF is completely open (doesn't have the honeycomb baffles) and were getting the worst of the problems.jasobhrai said:Any thoughts on the above???
some have said its best suited for the C5 Z06 and above only (C6....)
I believe that the diameter of the MAF is a different size only:smokin:HardcoreABN said:i noticed they list the stinger for 97-00 and another one for 01-04....what is the difference in the years that makes it need a different design. i was told that a 01-04 piece wouldnt work on a 97-00....
Black wing is less money, but gives you only a new element, the Halltech system also ships with a much better, less restrictive/higher flowing airbridge.jasobhrai said:I've spent a lot of time trying to find the right CAI for my 03 C5 and i thought i'd found it in the SSM (i can't deal with the VR2) so its the SSM or Blackwing.
HUGE difference, probably the biggest 'seat of the pants' difference you can get for even twice the money.jasobhrai said:I wonder if a good tune along with SSM will really make a diff on my stock C5.
The Bullets are awesome! I have them on my car, but remember, the bottom line to performance is simple... More air in...more air out. The Bullets will certainly take car of the second, but you'll need to open up the front end too to complete the balance.jasobhrai said:The tune will add expense to my first mod....... should i just get the BB bullit instead for similar money?
not from Halltech, but some venders still have some available, look around:thumbsup:jasobhrai said:Is the SSM for the C5 still available?
