Quest for 500 RWHP Naturally Aspirated

Right now I'm sitting at about 462 rwhp. But that is not enough. I want more. I just ordered a set of Stainless Power 1 7/8 headers and am going to order a new cam next week. Something around 232/244 . What else might I need to get there. Or will that put me pretty close. Also thought about getting a FAST intake and 102 mm tb. What do yall think.

Those mods may help, but might not be enough to get to the "magic" 500 number. I have yet to hear of a non-stroked N/A L99 hit 500 rwhp. 'Not saying it can't be done, but drivability might suffer quite a bit.

i know on FI applications it works wonders, not sure what your NA gains will be though, it'll def make more power. Wouldnt hurt to let Mr. Jannetty tune it either

We had the heads done when I got the first cam.

I may not get 500 rwhp but I wanna get as close as possible. I should have went this route the first time.
Zeke. I know what your gonna say.

I'm not sure about non stroked either. My 05 gto had a tsp built 402 making 505/463 at the wheels. Used their prc stg 3 ls6 heads, the prototype for the magic stick 4, fast 90, 1 3/4 longtubes. Still pulled down 25 mpg on the hwy and had decent drivability too.

Lol hey bud it's ok we live and learn.

500+ is achievable. Just google chris1313 on tech. That's my buddy and he laid down 510? On a SBE Ls1! On speedinc's rollers! Thru an auto and moser 12 bolt! It's all in the intake, right cam but mainly in the heads and compression!
Man forget this drive ability crap! If your tuner is good and so is the converter you'll be ok!

I'm thinking a lil bigger cam than the one tour thinking of bud.

Call Ed Curtis from flowtech
Or Brian Tooley from Brian Tooley racing.
He use to own TEA before he sold it to Summit racing.
Tell him Litle88 sent you.
They'll both spec you out the right cam.
