Nice start but 500rwhp N/A is tough unless you do heads. My guess is everything you got, you'll come up 15 or so shy of 500. I assume you aren't using meth, no2, blower... anything like that. Looks like a full bolt on setup.

Good luck.

Bottom end will handle 500 RWHP real easy!

Tonight i started to tear it down more updates soon.




here is a video of the car on a mustang dyno last week i wanted to get a baseline run before tearing into it. it made 322whp and 306trq i know it seems low but if you take in consideration that a mustang dyno is 12-15% lower than a dyno jet then its about right on.

I hear the stock LS3 heads are pretty good the way they are. I hope you make your goal.
