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 $$.
