RPM Motorsports tune, LMR CAI dyno results inside...

Brian brought us his fresh(143 miles) Silver Ice Metallic 2010 SS in for a LMR Cold air kit and a dyno tune. Final #'s were 376 rwhp. Here is a graph and some pics of his ride... I am sure with a few miles on this car and a oil change LOL he will pick up some HP !!


First pull is stock , 2nd is w/CAI added , third is tuned and CAI ..

Is this a manual car? If so, that's about 17% dt loss, right? Is that expected, even for a brand new car?

I've been seriously considering the LMR intake...however I read your earlier post of an avg. 8 HP gain with the LMR, and that just doesn't seem like much at all....hell, I think I read somewhere on here that you get more than that just putting a K&N filter in the stock box! Lets see....K&N-$50, LMR-$400???? WTF! Oh, I got time..my cars been just sittin in SC waiting for a truck since last Wed!!! Dang it!!!

I figured 1/2 87 and 1/2 93 = 90 octane

I would bet a tank of 93 would have bumped the base 356 up to 365-370 and 10-15 more after tune/cai !

Depends on the relationship you have with your local GM service manager. I have the hookup. So my warranty is still kickin'....

Each to their own..... I am just as happy with the difference in the way it sounds replacing the intake. Like Matt said I had closer to 5/8 tank of pure shit (87) and then I topped it off with 93. So I was pretty much running 88-89 at the most. I betcha when I get my Cam and Heads and a re-tune I will be busting over 450!

Its all in what you want ... When you keep on modding the car headers , cam , heads etc ... The CAI will be worth more than 8-9 rwhp ... New ERA claimed what 18-19 rwhp but that car had a LS7 427 .. When we do the cam swap on Brians car I will swap out the LMR for stock and see what we loose ? I bet the gains will more than double !!

I was talking/bugging the poop out of the tuner , (IIRC) he said with the stock tune and the LMR intake Bryan's car was getting KR (pulling timing) .
Goes back to the LOW octane thing , with 93 the stock tune/LMR could have run the full timing cruve and = more of a gain with just the intake .

I got a good look at the LMR intake , smooth bends/1 pipe with out a lot of coulpers(like other cai) and a very isolated air fliter . It a very nice pice , looks very good and sounds G R E A T .
I would not write it off of your list just yet .

Matt,
The tuner was Ryan, he owns RPM. Nice to see a owner that involved. He knows his shit. He made my TBSS like night and day.... I would not let anyone else work on my car......

Bryan

P.S. Jason that plug is worth 10% off at least!;0)

Very nice shop , very nice guys .
I was not even a customer and the Owner (Ryan) took time to talk and explain how HPtuners works while tunning your car .


OT
Learned alot about IAT and how much they can KILL your HP !
Every body should look into a tune (hint 88 degrees lol) !

$700 plus for a cai and a tune? Well I hope you like it. I have a ported TB, CAI, and a tune and I only paid around $600. However, as stated above.... to each his own.

RPM will be doing a MagnaCharger install on my car in the next week or so.I already have Kooks Headers and a Corsa catback installed.I have a LMR CAI that will be installed with these adds.I talked with LMR a few weeks back and they said I should see about 25hp increase when adding it to what I will have installed.Now that is a big increase, if it pans out......We will see real soon.......

Did you get a Dyno tune for that price ? Or just like a mail order tune ?

for 600 thats pretty cheap for all that stuff ...what is the name of the cai and what is it tuned on ???? cuz i agree with above that that must be a standard mail order tune not a dyno tune certainly not on hp !i just tuned mine today on hp with the lmr intake in 106 degree weather and 1500ft above s.l. and i made 376 as well . i guess what im saying is you pay for what you get and for 600 doesnt sound like your getting alot besides that what was your stock numbers and then your numbers after the 600$??
