Great numbers

Where did your A/F come out without a tune?

No idea, we didn't use a wide band since this was just a simple dyno-day and no tuning was planned. The MAF on these cars correct very well to simple bolt-on mods.

You might want to have it checked out when you have time. My 06 GTO with similar mods was running very lean (on the dangerous side). My tuner had add some fuel to make it a nice safe conservative tune (which I wanted).

If you weren't making good power with the mods, you'd most likely be on the rich side. But seeing that you made real good power, you're likely to leaned out quite a bit.

Several people did CAI first. Typical results on a stock car are 10-12 rwhp. How many people have shown what a CAI does on a lightly modded car? Ever wondered how much your stock airbox really chokes an engine that has mods already? Now you know.

I'd like to, but I probably won't have time. Traveling a lot for work lately, and racing in 100F weather isn't much fun. I'm eager to put the supercharger on.

WoW... breaking the 400 mark without tune... Had to exit before you got spun up, but it's great to see those numbers on what seemed to be a very conservative dyno. A couple others w/ dynos elsewhere ran ~20hp less at LMR.

Was nice to meet you and the wife... see you around the neighborhood...

ARH with Pipes, stock axel back, and Varam are my current plans, it's exciting to see those kind of numbers without a tune....


TY!

Did the add ons with no tune affect drivability at low speeds? Any issues with hesitation or surging at light throttle?

Thanks for posting your results. Dyno Days are great fun.

This won't be exact, but should be in the ballpark.

ARH-1795.00
MBRP-926.00
LMR-399.00
install ? 500.00

You paid about 70.00 per rwhp increase.
Not saying that's good or bad, just an observation. YMMV.

Definitely no drivability issues when using a stock tune. Typically, drivability issues occur once people start sticking camshafts into their engines. Bolt-ons rarely change a thing.

21rwhp and 23ft lbs of torque from just adding our Cold Air Induction System. Got to love it! Imagine the test results with one of our Punisher 440ci packages going from stock air box to our CAI system...30-50rwhp gains...

How much would a two hour cool down period effect the dyno numbers?

Those are some great numbers for a CAI and full exhaust. Seems like GM has the LS3 as constrained breathing wise as the LS1 was in the F-bodies.

That seems to be the case, though this is pretty easy to open up. The extra weight is more of an issue...though the massive increase in appeal and quality of the car make it worthwhile to most folks. It really is a nice ride, especially for the money.
