V6 2013 real horse power

Has any of you taken a 2013 v6 camaro without modifications to the dyno?
Does it really has 323 hp?
Usually how smaller does the stock horse power is compared to the real horse power?

I'm planning the buy a cold air intake, and in the future complete the cat-back with the x, mid, and down pipes from borla, and probably go for a tuning.

Supposing I achieve to install all these into my car, does any body knows the approximate increase of horsepower and torque I might get?

Nice list bro, I don't know what you'll be at, but it'll be sick. For the dual tips you don't have To buy the whole bumper you could do just the diffuser

I know it's not a header , LFX can't do headers, what I mean is its substitute, I don't really know how to call it, but it's something like this:

Read my build thread, Everything i have done is what I have wanted so far, more to come later. As far as pure HP, IPF Supercharger and Solo Exhaust and HF cats and a proper tune. You will need supporting mods for added reliability and to put the power to the pavement.

I just slapped on the IPF supercharger in my driveway over a weekend. I have no other mods (basically). I have no idea what power level I'm at, probably around 400 RWHP, but it's fast and will run down a stock SS. Spent around $6K.

So 280 rwhp is the expected from the supposed 323 hp stated by GM, on a 2013 2LT?

GM quotes crank HP, so that is pretty accurate, Rear Wheel HP is always a little lower due to drivetrain loss..

General rule of thumb is to expect about 20% loss with an automatic and I think 15% with a manual. 323 - 20% = 258 and I dyno'd stock at 258 on a Mustang dyno. So there's that.

My latest dyno run was after cai, exhaust, and ported TB and I got 271 on a DynoJet. Haven't had it up for a run since after putting on the Solo HFCs but I'm thinking I should be a tad higher now.

Remember, each individual dyno (as well as type of dyno) is going to read a bit different, and each run can be different on a given dyno.

That said, I think 280 RWHP stock is on the high end. I see a lot of stock LFX dyno figures in the 250-260 RWHP range. Sycraft's stock run is exceptional.

If we could all get 280 stock, getting up over 300 RWHP, NA, with bolt ons, would be easy. And it's not.

This.

The automatics should dyno a bit lower than manuals. Typical rwhp on these cars should be between 250 - 270 on a stock car.

I actually have a question about the IPF Supercharger for the V6 LFX engine. Is there a life expectancy on it? Would it eventually need to be replaced? I'm wondering if the cost is worth the extra hp gained in the long run. Im also assuming something like that will conflict with the large part of the warranty on the engine.

Your GM powertrain warranty will be toast.

But IPF offers a warranty of their own on their kits....its an extra cost option and I think its a for 3 years or 36,000 miles (but I could be wrong about that)

Still waiting to see results from a couple guys changing camshafts. Right now, turbo, supercharge, or nitrous is the only way u will see 350+
