Most you can expect. 2013 V6 Camaro

With just bolt ons. Exhaust, CAI, etc. does anyone know the max horsepower that can be squeezed out and best expected quarter mile time. As always, thanks.

Seeing as headers are out of the question, I would assume around 360 at the crank with full bolt on and a tune. If you go into FI that is another story.

Why are headers out of the question? Would they not be considered bolt on exhaust components?

Headers do not work on the lfx engines I do not believe.

I believe its because the headers are welded to block. I could be wrong, so please correct me if I am. So you cant just swap them out.

Ahhh, excuse my ignorance to the V6 platform, I figured they were fairly universal.

2013 V6 is a different engine. LFX vs LLT.

Header Integration Video

Figured I would post this old video again. This shows why headers are not an option in detail:

Thanks, that helped a lot. I can't believe more people aren't breaking into the 13's though. And the ones that do are pre-2013

Give me a few more weeks to finish up some tuning with Matt@FSP and I'll post some updated dyno and track times. I have just about every bolt-on you can put on an LFX except for super charger or turbos. I went the nitrous route. I'll be posting 13 second ETs on all motor for sure. I've already been 14.07 on all motor last year ( November 2012 ) before all of my winter and spring upgrades.

So, with just bolt ons and a good pair of slicks/drag radials, what do you think you will run. Without the NOS.

I currently have M/T 305/20 D/Rs on the car.
Not knowing the dyno numbers yet, this is a "SWAG" Scientific Wild Ass Guess based on 30 years of drag racing experience.
60' = 1.98 -2.05
1/4 mile ET = 13.85 - 13.90
1/4 mile MPH = 103 - 105
This would be in good air with a D/A around 1,000' or better

What about gears. That's got to count for something. That should shave a couple of tenths off.
