We typically see 70ish rwhp with this cam. 80-85 with SS3 usually.

But each vehicle will vary, and depending on the baseline HP whether it was maxed out before or not will come into play too.

I installed the SS3 VVT after I already had CAI, TSP headers,vmax ported throttle body and tune. I ended up with only 411 rwhp on the dyno jet after Jeremy Formato retuned car!. Also installed a Circle D 3800 stall converter. Seems very low to me. Have no idea how come I am not getting these higher numbers everyone is putting down.

There's your problem. Call phil at Tampa tuning, he helped me get to,where the car picked up nearly 30rwhp on same Dyno after retuning

VVT settings, AFR and timing. Its not black magic by any means, but the VVT settings can swing the power -20-40 hp alone! Then when you find the optimal VVT settings (which I provide upon request to customer or tuner), you then have to find the correct fuel/timing.

VVT settings can and will change fuel and timing requirements.

Maybe after my wallet cools down after 2 seperate dyno tunes, I will hit you guys up at GPI for a retune. Its only money, right! Just as long as the car is running the way it should.

Noticed a couple odd shifts at part throttle recently. Feels like it slips or the converter lockups and unlocks real quick. Lots of hesitation at low throttle when I take off slow. 2 tuners and this car is not even close to being right. Just so sick of paying for half ass work.

^^^ Sorry to hear that it's still not right.

I'm SS3 + stock ported heads (by Bo White), did 463rwhp on load dyno. Timing was only 28 degrees max. No cats.
