318rwhp bone stock, I entered with 369rwhp with LTH, cai, flowmasters, no cats no tune... came out with 443 sc'd, tuned and cai kinda became obsolete since they hacked it up... AEM custom built a new one for us shortly after, but didn't get it re tuned yet.

As you increase the power that drivetrain loss percentage drops. It it sucks up 82 rwhp stock it's doesnt use 88 rwhp with the blower. It's still only uses the 82 rwhp. So the drivetrain loss at 443 is 18%.

Get the new cai and have then retune it. Then start from that point. Gaining 70 rwhp from a blower is ridiculous.

Before you change anything I'd investigate this. Talk to your guy. Talk to some other tuners because you are way off.

In this case the type of dyno is irrelevant. You car was done on the sane dyno and produced average bolt on numbers. I was thinking maybe they used a mustang dyno which is usually 10-20% lower than most other dyno's. which would explain the low rwhp blower numbers.
Good to know all of this cuz I wasn't very impressed with the SC numbers to this day... i had it done in Arizona, over the weekend, and i don't live close to there, was out there on work so i had it shipped there... i don't have a tune guy or any shops down here that i really go to on a reg basis, still trying to find one, have 3 referrals to shops, but talking to them they're all kinds biased against edelbrocks sc'r so m still searching...

The shop i took it too was very familiar with them and said nothing but good things and how many they've installed... they had 3 Camaros in there with them when i got there, so trusted their judgment and work...

The blower is gd, maybe the tune isn't. But something isn't right. That number just seems low to me.

You should try Cunningham Motorsports in Murrieta. I don't know him personally or his work but I've read nothing but great things about Ryne. He seems to know his stuff.

I tried to get ahold of this shop actually, AEM referred me to them but they never seem to answer via email nor phone... this other place is called CBM motorsports... basically specialize in GM cars and LS motors... i will try Cunningham again though, more research the better, if i can get ahold of them this time around.

Your numbers do seem real low I have the Edelbrock SC. I think you need to get the tune check. And also your going to need to the JRE fuel line mod for it if your want to get more power out of it. Here is the link for the fuel mod http://www.jreperformanceparts.com/j...el-system.html.
If you looking for the 3.5 pulley I have one with the belt if your look for the pulley you can P.M. me. And also you can call Haddad Motorsports (310) 412-8032 ask for Mike
he can help with the tune.

Pm sent.. as for the fuel system, the site says 52lb injectors... the kit I got already included these with it... I'll put Haddad motorsports on my list for contacts tomorrow as well.

In a 102 mm you have 2 choices. Nick Williams and TPIS. The NW 102 has major issues on higher boost builds but you may be ok. The TPIS takes a little work to dial it in but works with all the blowers.

The bbk one was supposed to be released a little while ago. As far as I know it's not available yet but I haven't followed it.
