700RWHP/635RWTQ - Stock Heads, Blower, etc - 230HP GAINS!!

We just finished tuning our aggressor cam package in our shop car and wanted to share the gains. Keep in mind these numbers are on a Mustang Dyno and we have seen approx 50-60rwhp more at this power level on other dyno's. We are about advertising the true gains of the car as well as the final number because each car is a bit different. This is achieved at 13.5psi, which is 1.2psi less than our MILD camshaft and 40rwhp more 25rwtq with a broader power band and did not lose anything at lower RPM's.

We picked up 230HP and 170RWTQ with this setup. With similar boost levels to our upper only setup we are making approx 140rwhp more.

Modifications:
Airaid Cold Air
NW 102mm TB
Torq 102mm Snout
Kooks 1 7/8" Headers w. GREEN EPA Emissions Cats
Stock Catback
Stock Blower
Stock Heads
93 Octane Pump Gas

I believe he was reffering to the fact that he didn't port the heads like others have had to do to hit those numbers.

Is that the cam going in the car that is featured in the current Camaro Now? I thought I remember a comment about changing cams as the boost went higher than the efficiency of the OEM cam, blower, heads, etc...

If I could get away with a cam like that, I so would!!!

Would this cam work in an auto car with no stall? It sounds awsome.

I will try to make one response to cover everyone ;-)

This is a stock, un-ported head with our valvetrain upgrade including custom springs. This is a custom cam and like all our custom cams we must install and tune them to ensure drive-ability and max power/torque. We do sell SIMILAR camshafts with our power packages.

For automatic's we have different camshafts that work equally well ;-)

I will post a dyno sheet tonight

Here is the dyno sheet. We are pulling the car to about 7000+ and have discovered some missing parameters in EFI Live. Anyone tuning your ZL1 with EFI Live right now will not be able to go beyond the stock limiter.

Are you still having any issues with it pulling timing while on the road course with the added boost?

Oh no, not at all. That was was when we still had the stock cooling system, H/E, no IC reservoir and a few other stock bits we have then replaced.

We have been to the track several times since testing our different levels of power paks and cooling paks with great success. Just this past weekend I got over 3h of track time with the current setup and blew all previous lap times away, including the ones set with my previous SS with every suspension mod in the book. That video will be coming soon!

That's good to know now my next question is how does the car (mostly the brakes) do with all the extra speed when diving off into a turn? Can't wait to see some track videos and watch all the you tubers get bent....

She sure does, sounds nasty IRL. She runs pretty good too, 11.2 @ 126mph on stock tires, stock suspension with the old mild cam with a very novice drag racer Now we are making 40whp more with the new cam and I have some more seat time so I am shooting for 10's on stock tires.

Surprisingly well to be honest. I am running a slightly more aggressive pad in the front and up until this weekend when I ran them down to about 20%, I have had zero brake issues at all. The stock calipers work very well, the stock brake cooling is good (has room for improvement though) and the car is very balanced. I am still out braking much lighter cars lap after lap in 30 min sessions with no brake fade at all.

A good pad combo that is balanced front and rear (even temps to make it biased and balanced properly) and proper brake fluid and brakes will be the least of your issues.

I am also running Toyo R888's so I am REALLY using my brakes going very fast and very deep into the turns, add on some trail braking and that is usually a recipe for toasted brakes!

This car is a real hoot to drive at the track, despite the weight! 840hp gets her up and going and allows for some nice controlled exit oversteer even at higher speeds

No, this is with larger injectors and a dual pump set-up. We have run it with an MSD boost-a-pump as well with the stock pump, but it's right on the limit for that setup. The dual pump set-up is the way to go.
