Thanks Padre! It should be interesting I'm thinking at least 20whp/tq.

Are you thinking of doing the switch too?

I've always considered it, but was told to expect maybe 10hp.

Which is why your build can offer some valuable info.

A suggestion: dyno all things the same to compare. IOW, put the new rims on after.

Yeah i'm thinking much more than 10, I have seen countless packages with my mods from ECS and they are all at least 480+whp. Yeah I plan to do that but I might not even get down to ECS now as I realize I have a gash in my sidewall of one of my rears. Its near impossible to find a 305/30/22 pzero locally.

I'm wondering if you didn't hit 480 because of your 22's?

Either way, it just means you'll have that much more power available if you put on lighter rims.

I didn't dyno with my wheels on. The dynapack dyno hooks right up. My current 360s are pretty light

Just got my car back today from Phil and his crew at Detailer's Domain. By far the best detail I have ever received on any car. The car looked brand new it was truly amazing.

Detailers Domain Detail Job

Phil just got a chance to post up my detail review on the forum. Really impressive work he did and my car is just brand new looking again, even better I think.

Check it out here

Also wanted to snag this photo, it was my favorite one.

Matte Black Centers with Gloss Black Lips, just like my current wheels. However the manufactuer has a special finishing that is unique to their wheels which creates a very deep luster. The matte and the gloss should just look super wet all the time

Oh yeah I'm a pro, it just makes me buy other stuff to occupy myself .

Seriously this whole bumper thing . Sometimes I just like to pretend I lit that deposit on my bumper on fire, essentially the same thing as I have yet to get the bumper. It would be faster if I bought the ****ing box and shipped the box and packing material to them and then had it shipped back lol

So I got back from ECS today with some interesting news. I swapped the shorties for LT Dynatechs. The car made roughly +/- 25whp and about 15wtq more with the LT versus the shorties. Car now sits at 492/467 RWHP/TQ

Yup! the air was total crap too really muggy because it was humid and raining all day then the sun came out. Better air maybe i'd hit 500 . To your setup though padre I was talking with doug and chris and shorties didn't really seem to kill the blower cars as much, but when you get into big cam stuff like mine they just can't cut it in terms of pushing those gases out. I think if you can pickup a set used you should. I'd say you'd get about 20whp/10whtq out of em. Plus it sounds so much better IMO the sound really is nicer and holy hell its about 3x louder at WOT, I made the mistake of standing behind it on the dyno

Hey Chris glad to hear your power plant is coming together...that's a good look.
So a little birdy told me you've been picking off that damn money tree again and we should expect a new item added soon...inquiring minds.

Thanks man! Yeah she's about done. I want to do heads too but I need to focus on getting the DSS 1000hp axels and some suspension work so I can get to the track.


I might have gotten a new hood......
