400 hp 2010 v6?

Of course its possible but do you think that with enough mods the v6 will be able to pull about 400 hp? Whats the most hp someone has gotten from the v6 with mods? Im curious and would love to see my future camaro being able to compete with my cousins 2ss. Also dont tell me to go for the v8 because thats not an option for me right now.

Nitrous would be your cheapest route although I am not a fan of it.

I've seen anywhere from 20-80 bucks to fill a 10lb tank, so it can be pretty reasonable

Average is 3.50 a lb if having it filled. You can fill your own bottles much cheaper.
Even with that said in most cases even with the time of filling the bottle you still get a better bang for the buck compared to the initial cost of going FI and the maintenance involved.

Do you know about how long a 10lb bottle would last? I've never used nitrous before

Ive never used it either. I just think that nitrous would be a hassle based on what I know. It would be an easy way to get up to the ss though

That's what I'm thinking.
A cold air intake, exhaust, and a 75 shot should be pretty competitive. Especially with the L99

Exactly, I really want to see what the v6 is capable of with a little help from mods. The exaust is what should be expensive.

I don't know of many people who use nitrous on a whim whenever they feel like getting on it on an on-ramp or passing cars or just a quick romp.

get FI. More real world fun for the $$.

If you are a track guy then N2O can be a cheap alternative... but it is very addictive and you will want to keep putting in the larger jets... I know... i speak from first hand experience! LOL!

N2O is basically useless on the street and in many states it is illegal....

On my 4.0 V6 Stang I would get about 10 1/4 miles passes out of a 10 pound bottle... You can certainly fill a lot of bottles ( i was paying $30 to fill an empty bottle) for the cost a supercharger/turbo...

In the end I think a SC or TC is really the way to go....

NOS is a cheap fix, but not really the best choice for a daily driver. I'd much rather go with a built motor or supercharger or turbo setup.

Having to fill up bottles and not having the power on demand all the time is a PIA.

There are a few really good threads floating around with members with great plans on how to increase power in the V6...great swaths of info

ill see if i can dig em up, but given a few min of your time and the button you'll find em


Edit

Here i found one for you

Turbo is the only way to fly on a 6 -- all the driveability/manors/mpg of the 6 off boost, wild when you put your foot into it.

Now nitrous would be nice to have but like many of yall are saying I would like to have the hp all of the time and not be limited to how much nitrous I have. @ Mtron, thanks for the link!

if you want 400hp, cancel you order and buy the SS.

Don't mess around. If you want the real deal, get the real deal. This car is just too good to play around with. Come on, just pull the trigger. You will not regret it.

Just so you know, comments like this don't go over very well over here. Its the V6 forum for a reason, not the V8 forum.

No thanks, I prefer not to add an additional 8th ton on the nose and a thirst for 93... not to mention the ridiculous fake intake slot and brembo brakes that will never get proper use by their owners.

Hate to break it to some folks, but the Camaro is no longer a muscle car (technically it never was - but you get the idea). GM has made a well tuned sports coupe with retro skin... they slapped a V8 in it for the folks who are easily amused by burning (expensive) tires and only care about going fast in a strait line. For everyone else who views it more along it's true sports coupe lines - the 6 is the only way to fly.
