Im interested in knowing the correction factor as well.


And how come people go with 3" exhaust? seems a little big to me, that's closer to 600 rwhp territory. I bet the stock exhaust system is plenty (other than the mufflers and MAYBE the cats) with its nice bends.

Probably just planning for the future (they said this was stage 1), as I am expecting they likely have some FI for the future...this the same company that has a turbo Trailblazer ss that run s 9's @ 140mph.

This is a manual car with the 21' factory rims.

2: It did make hit the 400+ RWHP on the dyno, but the gains are not actually "+72 RWHP and +66 RWTQ" more like +45 RWHP and +40 RWTQSorry for messing that up...
I think the homepage article needs to reflect this rather important info.

I'm like the rest on here. How much for each component? and How/when can we order? Oh, and the ever present: This post is worthless without prices and pics of the parts.

Are you sure about these numbers? That would mean a 400 hp engine on an automatic would lose about 100 hp by the time it gets to the rear wheels. Shouldn't it be like half that?

well i know i'll be going with 3" because i like the sound to be deep, i know it wont be much deeper then 2.5" but it helps a lil bit.


Car sounds great and glad to see what numbers i can be looking at for instant mods

Thumbs up

WOW!!
So, just the CAI, the custom long tubes and the exhaust are the ONLY mods, besides the tune?
Very nice. I'm assuming it's a 3" exhaust. And it runs on what octane?

exactly.

my C6 (possibly the most inefficient transmission in the world) and 9" rear end on my galaxy probably loses in the 20% range. No way a modern car does.

If thats true, then the major loss issue must be in the IRS no?

It looks like the admin messed up and put 72rwhp instead of 45rwhp on the camaro5 homepage. Hopefully he/she will fix it.

Rotational mass(the weight of the wheels) only matters. It's like this. A 20lb 20'' aluminum wheel will produce more HP on the dyno than a 17'' 35lb wheel even though the 20'' is a larger size wheel. More wheel weight= more power used up to turn the wheels. This is the same concept as an aluminum driveshaft freeing up power because of it's lighter than stock weight.
