HOME MADE CAI DYNO RESULTS, read and weap haters

Ran with 93 octane at Speedtek Performance off 121 in Ft Worth. Bone stock besides the axel back exhaust. And the CAI system home made from 4'' parts found at PEP boys, 4'' K&N filter. $120 spent on intake system and the number dont lie, it works. 3 runs at 402 RWHP.

For that car, no base run. I asked the guys up there. They said the sticks usually run around 365. They were pretty impressed as well. If it wasn't for this forum i would have never done it.

You might want to fabricate some sort of heat shield for this summer. When its 100 degrees outside its going to be extemely hot under your hood.
Dyno numbers are uncorrected.

Check this out though.?.?.? Hennessey is a legit fabricator. I do want to make a heat shield just havent found the company that will sell me a small sheet of aluminum. They manna sell me monster pieces that are all hella expensive

ummm those numbers are dyno queen STD numbers, not SAE

and dyno numbers aren't all the same... dynojet allowed a 10% variance in their parts.

Not to be a dick, but with no baseline and with STD numbers, your results are fruitless.

good job on making the intake though! it should be an improvement over stock

Your intake looks good. It would just work better during the hot summer months if you fabricated some sort of heat shield.

And nothing against Hennessey, they do some really good work. But their intake hasn't been at the top of people's wish list. One reason is because it doesn't have a heat shield.
But with a TVS 2300 under the hood (Hennessey's packages include), you really don't need to worry about a few extra HP.

Fruitless? 400 to the wheel on a motor listed at 426 at the crank stock... not catching on there.

Search Stock Dyno results for a LS3 stick, Its cool bc, I bought the same car from the same manufacturer.

if you go to some one in your area that fabricates metal,they would probably give you enough for nothing.usually their dumpsters are full of scrap.

Yes fruitless. Because not all dynos... even ones made of make/model ARE NOT the same. Dynojet has a TOLERANCE PERCENTAGE for all of their dynos. meaning that the dyno only has to read to a certain percentage before it can be sold. This means that you COULD HAVE just been on a very generous dyno. Also any dyno can be made to put out high numbers (such as manipulating the correction factors on the computer). Am I saying these dyno tricks were applied to your "test"? No... but am I saying they are a possibility? YES. If there is a possibility of there being an uncontrolled variable, it makes the entire test pointless. You aren't keeping what should be the "constants" in the test the same.

and again, you posted STD numbers, not SAE numbers. for example... I just dyno'd my car.... it made 420 rwhp STD. We applied it to SAE, and my corrected numbers were 401 rwhp SAE.

You CAN NOT compare your dyno numbers to other numbers from DIFFERENT dynos. That's just keyboard/bench racing.

You can compare dyno numbers to your previous numbers, on the same dyno. Had you got a baseline, and saw how much you actually gained, then it would be an interesting test.

Did you forget about the cat delete? I think that adds a few extra HP as well. It doesn't matter what anyone says as long as YOU'RE HAPPY. I still stand by my statements, but then again, I don't have to drive it.

If you're going to post up a read-em and weap thread, at least have your facts straight and post pre and post numbers from the SAME CAR on the SAME DYNO.

I agree with DanHR a bit.You can't really post STD expecially with 1.02 correction factors.SEA it would be around 385rwhp.Still good and I'm sure your setup works just fine.

The Hennessy cold air setup without the sheild brings inlet temps way up.I've seen inlet temps as high as 150 degree's cruising at low speeds.Should be called the hot air inlet.

Either way,your intake look very good for a budget setup.Build a heat sheild around the filter and it will be better.

all isn't performance. . . Looks is a key factor also. . . hate to say, but that looks like crap.

Good way to save some cash though.

Looks like a gangle of fellas had some Haterade this afternoon.

Dude made his own stuff and wants to use the money to spend on something better. Interesting how the peole complianing and hating are the ones who HAVE good coin invested in their intake systems.

Good on ya fella. You're sharing and that's even cooler. Nice that you threw a shout out to the people of C5.com for motivating you to do something that you would have "never done without the forum."

You haters are acting like dude isn't a Camaro owner and he's trying to roll in on coattails or something.

Peew...it stinks up in here...I'm out
