Hey so update picked up the car today!! Man it sounds wicked and the guys down at ECS have done yet another great job. I can't say enough about the group of guys down there. Really go above and beyond for you. Thanks for the axle Matt

It was interesting driving home, car is a whole new animal now! Love how it rocks the whole car at a light.

I ended up putting down 467/457. Talking with matt my baseline was done in the winter so even though the dyno corrects it probably had something to do with my strong baseline. We will say the shorties/high flow cats probably were really somewhere around 405-410rwhp. A set of long tubes and I'll probably be up another 20whp+. I'm extremely happy looking at the graph that I lost no power down low at all and only made more over most of the rpm range! Overall car drives excellent, no surging down low was doing 65 in 6th on the highway 1500rpm!

Thanks Padre! It should be interesting I'm thinking at least 20whp/tq.

Are you thinking of doing the switch too?

I've always considered it, but was told to expect maybe 10hp.

Which is why your build can offer some valuable info.

A suggestion: dyno all things the same to compare. IOW, put the new rims on after.

Yeah i'm thinking much more than 10, I have seen countless packages with my mods from ECS and they are all at least 480+whp. Yeah I plan to do that but I might not even get down to ECS now as I realize I have a gash in my sidewall of one of my rears. Its near impossible to find a 305/30/22 pzero locally.

I'm wondering if you didn't hit 480 because of your 22's?

Either way, it just means you'll have that much more power available if you put on lighter rims.

I didn't dyno with my wheels on. The dynapack dyno hooks right up. My current 360s are pretty light
