Default Engineered to work together

Became the new owner of a '12 grandsport 6spd manual a couple weeks ago and have been poking around the forums. I am considering some mods to increase power, but not adversly affect drivability. I am not so much concerned with the final HP number, but would like to see a noticible increase in power throughout the powerband.....say 2500 - 5000rpm. Are there companies that offer intake/cam/header combos that have been engineered to work together to get optimal results? Back in my youth Edelbrock did this with cams and intakes for many popular motors (in fact my only Mustang was modded this way).

There are a number of companies that specialize in LS motor combinations. A few that come to mind are Texas Speed, Linginfelder, Katech, etc. ( I probably misspelled the last two).

We are about to release a cam/header/CAI/tune that arrives in a box and was all designed to work with each other. The tune is built specifically for the car and the components. Let me know if you want more details!

Not sure where you are located. This would help in a possible vendor to recommended. LG motorsports in the dallas, tx area have great products that are designed to work together and race proven. They have great customer service with no complaints from me. They are not the cheapest.

Too bad you didn't advertise your new combo earlier.
I just had a cam put in my GS and have headers on the way.
I would have happily been a test mule for you........
