Cool Man. I have been so busy working on Pumpkin that I lost track of your saga. Glad to see you solved your problems and your up and running again.

Pq, don't worry about the hairy-legged brazilian men discussion. That only holds true for the pink Tu-tu wearing LS3 Team

So your numbers are 471 rwhp? Are these numbers SAFE numbers? or are they permanent. I was thinking you would have 500 or more. Why would I think that?

Got to be the wheels. It was a perfect day for dynoing and we used the 3.6 pulley as well. 7.3 pounds of boost. If you did the common estimate of 20 HP per pound of boost added to the 360 rwhp I started with, you'd get right at 500. Not to mention I believe mine is the lowest dynoed Maggie yet, it's gotta be the wheels.

I was wondering the same thing because just with my cam, headers etc... I have 463 to the wheels, but I have the same wheels as you ( 22's) so something else must be going on taht is only 8 rwhp difference. I know dyno's are different but do you think that they would be that different. Mine is an LS3 though but it should make that big of a difference don't ya think.

I was there when they dyno'd mine the last time and got 463, actually they got more but had the rev limiter at 7100 just to see what it would do and to show me that I would not blow up my car not matter if I drove it hard. The set the rev limiter to 7100 to prove to me , Noob Guy, that I wasn't going to hurt my car, that I wasn't going to break anything, that what they did was safe, really to give me comfort. Of course they set the limiter back down, cooled the car off, made the final tune, and did the final dyno run and made 463 rwhp on mine. My fuel trims were 12.9 and they said that was as close to perfect as they could get, whatever that means, lol.

Doesn't Gtahvit's car make 500? I think I remember Emma's making 500 also. Could it be something else going on with your car?
