Looking good. I am very interested in what testing shows for these!

I'm not ignoring anyone, I apologize that you weren't picked to try these out. Not trying to be rude, but do you realize how many people jump at the chance for free stuff for "testing". If I just gave them to everyone that wanted to "test" them, I'd be in the poor house.

At least I'm supplying them for independent testing, as well as my own, rather that estimating a gain and sending them out the door. Rest assured, they will either show some kind of confirmed gain, or I won't sell them.

I think that's a pretty decent way to get customers

I'm not begging for free stuff dude, just some common courtesy.... How hard is it to reply to my PM with, "Sorry man, already have four people lined up, but I'll keep you updated on the progress and the gains and let you know if they end up for sale "

I mean really, it took me saying I was ignored for you to tell me this.....

That said, it is what is it. Lets try to keep the post on the exterminator topic.

Exterminator?? Guessing your phone or something autocorrected?

Actually I kind of like it.

Put this on and "exterminate" the competition.

I'm thinking it would beat a fully bolted on LLT with headers and that would be awesome. 360 - 370 HP LFX perhaps?
Don't think we will see a N/A LFX with only bolt-ons with those numbers. I have just about every bolt on piece on mine and working on some tuning with Matt@FSP. We will see what my numbers are in a few more weeks on all motor.

I believe I'm in on the testing and thus far I have a few mods - CAI and ported throttle body. We'll see what kind of difference it makes!

Running a little behind schedule... The 1" Extendolators are being cut as I type this... As soon as hardware shows up for both the 1" and the 1/2" the test units will ship.

You have an automatic right...or a manual?

Matt will tell you that his dyno reads a tad lower than some other dynos out there, so that could sway the numbers a bit.

That said assuming the dyno reads out perfectly and the automatic has 20% loss (I actually feel like its may be even 21% loss), if you hit 285+ rwhp on the dyno with an auto, that means your cranking out roughly 360 at the crank.

Good luck!

I figured he meant RWHP numbers, I don't worry about crank it's at the wheels that gets your up and moving. Matt is doing my tuning via email, when he is done I'll take it back to where my other runs were done and compare. **EDIT Yes it is an automatic **

Prior to Matts tunig here was my last dyno run that I was told my tune was spot on. So we will see what the numbers are in the near future after the tune. I should be doing some track runs in the next week or two also. Yes a bit lean for most of the pull. :-(

Oh...well yes there is no way in heck that an n/a V6 will see 360 HP at the wheels...i'm not delusional lol. Looks to me like you have a great chance at getting to that 280 - 285 rwhp range which is pretty damn good.

You can keep the engine cover on. I took mine off to let the heat out of the intake. I kinda like my intake painted, it's a different look when first seen.

When I look at your pictures I think of Spiderman... Or Pinhead from the Hellraiser movies :P

The hardware finally showed up yesterday for the spacers, to the test units will ship on Monday after I sit down this weekend and take some pictures, and document the install process for the instructions.

Just throwing this out here, anyone in Michigan have a dyno willing to help a guy test this. I am in northern Michigan. I don't want to make the trip to Detroit and back, but if anyone close to mid Michigan has a dyno PM me. If not, anyone in the Detroit area wants to work with me PM me as well. I don't mind paying a reasonable amount, just looking to not have to drive 6 hours to do it.
