CAMROSS & Davenport team up for a Stage III+ with a bunch of other goodies!

Bryan dropped off his car for some serious upgrades.

I thought I'd start a thread to show the progress. Hope everyone enjoys.

Just getting it ready, white protective transportation film, then fender covers.



The old set up.



Intake, heads and front cover all removed. 6.2 ready and waiting for a big injection of power!



The old parts put aside out of the way so they won't get damaged.



I'll continue with more pictures as things progess! This is going to be the thread to watch as we've got lots of things planned for this car!

We're porting the lower manifold on the TVS 2300.

Here are a few photo's that show the difference.

Supercharger unit separated.

A few shot's of the LPE CNC'd LS3 Cylinder heads.







I tried to take pictures of the ports but the camera wouldn't focus.

I'll keep the pictures coming as things move forward.

By comparing the shape of the ports on the LPE head to that of the ports on the ported lower intake of the TVS2300 its quite apparent that air flow between the two parts will be considerably less restricted and should reduce pressure off the back end of the supercharger. In my opinion this should allow the same volume of air to pass through to the valves with less boost.

I guess what I'm trying to say, is that a non ported system running 8 lbs. of boost will produces less air out the back of the supercharger than a ported system running 8 lbs. of boost. This makes the boost number a relative term and the actual amount of air in "cfm" the important number for tuners to determine the proper AFR.

Now you need some seats like this, maybe some paint and finally a little dress up...



Of course you are going to be a Davenport 700...or 720....or 750...I'm envious.

I'm told the camshaft, ported heads and Maggie c/w ported intake are all installed on the A6 and waiting their turn for tuning on the dyno between Christmas and New Years. I'm not sure if I'm more excited about Christmas or seeing the dyno numbers, I guess maybe a little of both...

That's a substantial amount of material you are removing, should make a BIG difference in airflow.

Surprised more people haven't done this.

We've yet to install the Phadt suspension and LPE 3:70 diff and halfshafts. Thats gonna blow the budget for this winter. The plan is to stroke and forge the bottom end next winter so we will run somewhat conservatuive on the boost this year.

Yes for now. I assume your refering to the potential for trouble with the needle bearings as opposed to an upgraded roller bearing?



Thanks for the interest guys...

Yep, that GT9 looks like it has a bit of lift!

Here's the dyno numbers from today. The baseline (blue) was with the LT's, exhaust and CAI done last July. The new dyno numbers (red) include the ported TVS2300, LPE GT9 cam and LPE CNC'd LS3 heads.

They were running a 3.6" pulley on the S/C at 7 lbs. boost.

I think Namala has some pictures to go with this that hopefully he will post.

Thanks for the pictures Namala, I know you spend a lot of time doing this sort of stuff, I think its great that people can see how parts are installed and look as a project progresses. Too often we get to see bits and pieces of a car without getting the real feel for the overall project

Now as for you Bryan, you have shamed me into stepping up my project Camaro, you bad man you.
