expected HP and TQ gains

one of my buddies had a 2010 camaro ss (manual) and before he sold it a year later for a cammed 2008 z06 vette, he did the basic bolt-ons. intake, headers, exhaust and a tune. and he went from 320 to the wheels to 427 to the wheels... he showed me the dyno sheet and everything. can i expect similar gains in my 2013 ss even tho im auto? p.s. his vette is still the fastest thing ive ever been in lol

it just seems like a lot of gains for pretty much simple upgrades. i could understand 50 or 60 hp but were talking a 25% increase. i mean i hope hes right because i did the intake today and ill do the headers and a tune a few weeks.

That is a big jump in power for them bolt- ons. But could be right if the stock pull was in summer at 100+F and the bolt-on with tune was 60F or so in the shop.
Just the tune will wake up the A6. You should be around 400rwhp of useable power. So no you will not get 87rwhp.

A buddy has a mostly stock Z06 and he kills me to 80 I beat him to 120 and it takes all 634rwhp in my big camaro to do it. Stock tires and the airport runway you do the math on grip lol.
I have only seen YouTube heads/cam Z06s and they all look super fast. Like to ride in one some time.

Yes that did not look right how I put it. All the bolt-ons listed with tune should put a A6 at what 380ish depending on tune Dyno , weather and car. So could be higher or lower. But that does not matter go off your stock pull and see what you get after all the work you put into it. As one Dyno can show WAY more HP then the next.

Most dyno's are weather corrected so conditions don't matter all that much. 380 from a 2013 with bolt ons is believable.

400 rwhp on an a6 with only a tune and I was going to ask you to stop smoking crack!

Is your warranty worth anything to you? If not, go for the CAI, maybe a VMAX TB, LT headers, high flow cats, and a cat back with a tune. If someone does the labor and the tune properly you are looking at around $4k for parts and labor and you will net around 50rwhp. I don't think it is worth it as these cars are heavy and where I live there are many Turbo S's, 458's, GTR's, Z06's, ZR1's, and more that you would never be able to keep up with street tires, let alone slicks. I would spend an additional $4k and get a Magnuson supercharger installed and tuned and have a nice reliable sleeper that gets good mpg with an extra 120rwhp. Again, IMHO I would start off with a CAI and a Range AFM delete unit. If a problem arose relating to the engine or drivetrain it takes a second to pull out the Range and about 30 minutes to put back the factory intake. As for catbacks on a stock car, noise, some weight savings of ~30lbs, and a cleaner look would be the advantages. Gains would be ~0-5rwhp and your exhaust warranty would be void, unless you wanted to spend a few hours putting the stock unit back on. Don't forget about the suspension. Good luck with your decision.

well i already have the intake and Range v8 and my friends father owns american racing headers so i could get the headers for around 750 and i would use their exhaust system as well because of the discount i would get, so i wouldnt spend anywhere near 4k. more like 2.5k with install and 400 for a tune so around 3k max. but yes i dont want to lose my warranty yet so im going to wait on that stuff for now. but in ur opinion the bolt ons should be avoided?
