Frank or Brent,
I think the 20% loss is due to 3 things, 1. 20 inch wheels, 6L80E trans that is one beefy mother and the GM computer is very conservative and loves to pull timing, I ran 2 runs back to back stock and put down 319rwhp on my L99 then pulled the ECM fuses to clear the LTRIM`s for about 5 minutes, immediatly ran it again and gained 8rwhp, no cooldown.
American Racing is seeing 30-50rwhp w/ their header and x-pipe kits tuned. That L99 exhaust setup is pitiful...If you did the exhaust on that car and still have it laying around take a look at it.
I`m thinking a Whipple for mine, you can`t spin the L99 in the high rpm`s because of the lifters, so lets make power down low w/ a screw style, and at least on the mustangs isn`t the whipple the most effecient at the same boost levels? Now if I had a manual LS3 w/ the 6600 redline a Procharger would be my choice for certain.
I bet that car is a whole nother animal now! Picking up 158rwhp is freakin sweet
