Talking Guess my LFX HP!

Ok,

So I've added a few mods to my 13' RS Camaro and I'm just wondering what my total HP gains have been since I'm not going to a dyno.

So I know the stock motor is rated at 323 HP

I've added the following:

Cold Air Inductions CAI Intake (+16HP?)
VMAX CNC Spiral Ported Throttle Body(+5HP?)
RX Catch Can w/AN Fitting/Braided Stainless Hoses,
RX Breather Oil Fill Cap (No HP gains)
MRT Axle-Back Exhaust Version 2.0 w/ Magnaflow X Pipe Performance Resonator. (+15HP?)

So that puts the HP around 360 plus or minus a few right? Now I know this is not RWHP but still impressive for a V6!

Whatcha guys think?

In my world if your car starts and gets you where you need to go you're set. I haven't had a discussion about HP since I was in high school. Didn't matter then, doesn't matter now. I am impressed with your audio upgrades.

Hp numbers do not matter much, tq is wat you want. You should not really worry about power on our overweight cars. The v6s are more about beauty then speed. For how much you paid for you RS you could of bought a new Wrx that can be built into a monster, but will never look as good as our cars imo. If you want you car to be fast I would look into forced induction.

To give you a comparison, my 2012 LFX m6 with a cold air intake, VMAX ported throttle body, and RX catch can so far has had a best of 273rwhp and 234rwtq.

Mine is running 271HP@241TQ at the rear wheels. Now my tune is running lean until 5800rpms than goes rich until 7000. So we will see after some more tuning is done. This was on all motor no nitrous.

I unfortunately don't have dyno numbers for a baseline - the first dyno was last year and I had the CAI cold air intake and the RX oil catch can - the numbers from that dyno were 270rwhp. The VMAX ported throttle body basically didn't add any horsepower, the 3rwhp difference from last year to this year IMHO is more about weather factors than the ported throttle body.
