Yeah he does, we got 3:73's, Delete Plates, and Pullies installed back in May 2007, but we've had another dynotune since then. It's just over 300rwhp so we are happy.

So those Stainless Steel LT's are custom fabricated by Fastlane?

WOW, + 46 RWHP actual gain from fresh air intake and full exhaust looks really great. Wonder what the torque was?

Merged

Dude what is that in the background of that picture?

I may be the only one, but I guess I had hoped for a little more power from this combination of mods...The CAI should make a little better power than the GM performance style, the headers are full length LT's, and what little power the exhaust makes, but then you tune it for max power...just figure it would put down a little more...oh well.

yes, it's been re calibrated, but I don't believe it's a 93 octane tune...

Well, we are still working on the tune. We only played with it for a little while to hit the 400 mark. we will be adjusting it more in the days to come.

Cool. The only reason I say that is because the LS3 vettes do put down quite a bit more with the same mods...I would expect them to put down a "little" more I guess, but not "that" much of a discrepancy. Those parts look like very nice pieces for sure, so I would expect the gains to be pretty solid...top shelf stuff looks like.

Cool pic too

so what are we talking about here? 15 percent drivetrain loss puts it at 460 FWHP 29 percent puts it at 480FWHP not to shabby

Impressive that at this early stage we are already seeing tuners coming up with stuff like this.

Man that thing sure sounds sweet. How much extra horsepower will the stock SS drivetrain be able to handle?
