So I'm still waiting on pushrods, dual valve springs, and retainers for the cam/head swap. (PRC Stage 1, 234/234 114 LSA .601/.601 camshaft)

So I went ahead and threw on the LT's, X pipe, and Borla XR1 catback and Vararam intake and put it on the dyno.

The LT's are a huge pain in the ass. So much stuff had to come off to get them in there, the clearances are very tight. But they do fit, and they are very well made. Only issue right now is the passenger side collector has very little clearance and can rattle against the body a little bit. I think I'm going to losen the bolts up on the whole left side and try to work it over to gain more clearance.

The XR1 muffler, well didnt fit. I ended up just using the straight pipes that come with the XR1 catback. I think the Kook's LT,s and x pipe caused some issues with things getting shifted into places the catback wasnt designed to fit into. I still have my stinger catback if change my mind and switch back. But it sounds very good, extremely loud, but thats what I Was going for anyway.

The vararam goes in pretty easily, my car already had some off brand intake on it when I bought it, so the hassle of getting the factory stuff off was already done for me. It slid in with about 45 minutes of total work.

Also put on the MGW shifter, and wow. Getting the handle to the right position is very important. If you screw it all the way in, it will be very hard to shift. I found that screwing it in about 10 threads deep was the optimal setting for this. Very easy job, just take your time and be careful with electrical connections. Dont put it all back together and forget to plug in the cigarette lighter (duh).

So the dyno results, the dyno was a Dyno Dynamics model, and it seems to read a little generous.

Results were 396rwhp before tune, 402.7 after tune. I dont remember the tq from the before run, but you can see the TQ on the graph below. I think on a dyno jet peak power would have been in the 385-390 range. Unfortunatley I have no baseline numbers to compare to.

Not bad - headers are usually a serious bitch. You have to disconnect the starter, move the steering out of the way, and jack one side of the engine up at a time on my car. Frickin PITA. :headexplode:

How much do you think you'll pick up with the cam? And are you gonna get a timeslip at some point?

Actually, those are known as the heart breaker dynos because they actually read much lower than any other dyno out there.

Looking good Dave.

I used to work with Brent, one of the owners of DTPRacing, and he is a great guy.

Ahh man, he should have kept the Z06 :(

Tell him to be careful out there on 2 wheels and if he sees an ungodly handsome stud on a silver Harley with ape hangers to wave...
















I'll tell that guy to wave back too :D

I used to ride a sportbike. That's until I had a few close calls with SUVs that were completely oblivious to other motorists.

Now I drive :)

I had quite a few close calls with women. I now ride Bob...


You can't be scared to do things you love or you ain't living, you're just existing. On the other hand, if you never really loved it you should have never done it.


I love Bob.
