Talking RPM Motorsports Custom Cam, TVS 2300, L99 Dyno#'s inside !!

We just finished up a L99 cam swap on a car we had already installed/tuned a TVS2300 kit on. On this car we opted to delete the AFM and install a custom grind camshaft. We were quite happy with the new #'s. The cam we installed was rather small and did not require a aftermarket torque converter and drive's really nice on the street. The gains were pretty awesome being the car made 478 rwhp on 8#'s and after the camshaft it made 537 rwhp on only 5.5#'s of boost !! With 8#'s I am sure we could easily push 560+. Here is a rundown of the mods installed and a pic of the dyno graph ....


Run# 5 478.17 RWHP

TVS2300 (8#'s)
Kooks 1 7/8" Longtubes w/cats
Corsa Catback
LMR CAI
RPM Motorsports Tune

Run# 12 537.23 RWHP

TVS2300 (5.5#'s)
Kooks 1 7/8" Longtubes w/cats
Corsa Catback
ADM CAI
RPM Motorsports Tune
RPM Motorsports Custom grind cam
.660 Lift Valve Springs
Pushrods
LS7 Lifters
LS7 timing Gear
LS2 Valley cover/timing cover

Wow, just show you stock Cam is not really suited for F/I. Nice to see Boost drop and I bet the IAT is cooler too.

I suggest to add some "Heat shield Jacket" for those spark plug wires, being too close to headers.

You stated you removed the AFM, but what about the VVT? Did you retain it, or did you lock it out?

We used the same pulley that was sent with the kit for a stock motor from Magnacharger. I think its a 3.8

Our Intake fits both SC cars and NA cars.....Good Job

It has been proven now from more than 1 company that our Intake is worth 25-30 rwhp on a SC car over the stock Intake
