hi all ..i was told if i needed some good advice this is the place to go..
i have just purchased a used engine from a friend for my auto 2004 gto and it seems to be lacking in power and i was wondering what do i have to upgrade
i haven't dynod it yet but i raced an auto LS3 C6 with I/H/E/cam 470rwhp and i almost beat him with my street tires while he had drag radials but even though, i feel that it should be putting out more power.. am guessing am at around 490-500rwhp
the engine is a L98 stroked to 408
92 Fast Tb
102 Fast Intake manifold
a small cam (no details atm)
1 3/4 headers
a custom 2.5" exhaust
i was thinking of going the the 2005 - 2006 vararam or the AEM bute force
102 TB worth it?? what about headers? 1 7/8? worth it?
I would try and figure out what the cam spec is. If the spec is not right for those heads there might be some power to picked up from there. 1 7/8 headers would pick you up some good power on a motor that size, as well as 3" exhaust if possible.
