Headers and cam decrease boost, you must pulley down to get it back.

So there you go....you want to know what the difference is between a TVS 1900 @ 8psi vs 2300 @ 8psi, about 13rwhp...which at this power level could be attributed to dyno/weather variation. So FWIW at 8psi essentially no difference.

Why only 560 hp with headers, "secret cam package", and 8psi? Seems like others have done more with less.

Once you swap the cam, there's not much difference between the L99 and LS3. A few tenths in compression and a dab less effeciency in the tranny. Not much else

5% is more than a dab when you're talking 500+rwhp.

5% of 500 equals 25hp which equates to "dab" to me.

Its 5% of flywheel hp not RWHP!
This car is making 700hp at the flywheel. I cant wait for someone to take it to the track with a set of DRs, those are the numbers that really count.

Please explain to a dumb old farmer how you make the quantum leap from 560 rwhp to somehow equal 700 at the flywheel. I'm a little mystified.....
