Just installed a few goodies on #917

No pics...sorry. I went conservative with the upgrades but they should be worth 60-80rwhp. The mods are as follows:

ATI/Lingenfelter lower pulley with 9.55 ring...left top pulley stock. 50 mm lower idler.
160 thermostat
NGK TR6 spark plugs
ADM Race Air intake
Lingenfelter/Rotofab Intercooler reservoir
90mm Throttle Body
Tune by local dyno tuner this week.

My test drive was uneventful and I was just checking for leaks, pulley wobble, etc. At grandma speeds and light throttle, no CEL yet.

553hp/563tq....sae corrected. actual on a hot day was 543/553. It is waaay stronger on the street. Feels like it should have from the factory with minimal mods.

Based on the fact that you have an auto Id say those mods were worth about 80rwhp. I see a lot of dyno #'s on here for stock auto's around the 470 range. Nice numbers btw!

SAE corrected stock was 478/481...so it was a nice jump. Feels great and the tires scream for mercy now. With the cooler weather, it should be running some decent times at the strip soon!

nice numbers......why did you go with a bigger lower pulley versus a smaller upper? Also, I was told when I do get ready to MOD, if I went to a 90mm TB to use an LS2 90mm TB instead of the LS3 90mm. You ever hear of that?

I went with the lower pulley because it was an easier swap and I didn't have to send out for a new snout etc. The 9.55 lower ring is close to the same boost as a 2.55 upper. Also, the ATI balancer is lighter than the stocker. I have never heard of a specific LS2 90mm TB but if they are both 90mm and bolt up just like stock with a "plug and play" wire connection, then they should perform identically. The listings on ebay say LS3 LS2 LS7 so maybe they all use the same part number. 90=90. I purchased the TB from ebay for $130ish. I felt like the more expensive choices (102mm etc) may not help much with a stock unported snout.

yes, of course. Traction is difficult without "sticky tires".

Tell me about it.
My trip to the track (before any mods) resulted in 13's with 2.7 - 2.8 60 fts...lol
I just thought you seemed to have pretty good stock tire times, so it wasn't a huge stretch to the 11's.
My car is a manual though and launch traction is a HUGE problem.

you must get drag radials or your track runs will be a bust...that I can tell you with certainty.

Your mods are very similar to mine. What headers did you use?

So I just want to be clear on this, a stock LS3 TB will fit on a LSA with a stock upper pulley? Which way is it mounted? Do you need a spacer? Is the TB motor on the pulley side or inverted with the motor on the AC generator side?

Thank you in advance.

Yes, it is a direct swap bolt on with no mods, spacers, or wiring changes. It can be mounted either way. Most people choose to mount it with the TB motor to the driver's side simply because of esthetics. The TB motor bulge is quite ugly when it is mounted towards the passenger side. The stock bolts work too and it takes maybe 5 minutes to swap it. Just like aftermarket cold air intakes, I doubt it is worth much hp without a custom tune as the MAF scaling needs adjustment when any airflow changes are made. Otherwise, the A/F ratio will be way off.
