Took the car to Lamar Waldens--> http://www.lamarwaldenautomotive.com/<-- today to get tuned. Graph shows the first baseline and the last two pulls. I took the cats off last week so the car was running pretty shitty without a tune(obviously from the base graph lol)

Final numbers 383rwhp and 379ftlbs
Mods: CAI, Corsa, stock manifolds w/ no cats

Looks solid. My numbers from last year (in my signature) are nearly identical to yours. I had a modified Volant intake, 1-7/8" OBX headers, no cats, and the stock exhaust. Ambient temperature that day was in the 90's, with 80%+ humidity. Are you running the stock clutch still?

I'll look at my printout later, sound like the same conditions too lol. Yup, stock clutch. It's got HE Pro axles, but doubt those freed up any HP:drive:

I'm dropping my car off at MTI tomorrow morning. Can't wait.

I wish I knew about Lamar Walden's shop as it's like a 15-20 minute drive for me. That place sounds pretty cool.

Those numbers are insane. Seems high for what you've got, but don't get me wrong. I like it. Thanks for sharing.

Dude, take it to Walden's instead :cheers: They do great work. This is my buddy's orange C6 they built vs a S/C Grandsport

I know a guy that works at MTI. They also do great work and have an awesome reputation. I'm sure they're both great tuners.

Numbers are meaningless. The only number that matters is what you get when you subtract the baseline.

Agree, Bud. 50 rwhp with a CAI, no cats and a corsa seems high.

My thoughts exactly. Should be in the 360rwhp range with those mods but hey... Factory freak is possible unless the dyno is generous...

I bought it used from a dealer, so maybe it's got something else I don't know about. Either way it picked up some power, regardless if the rwhp is higher than norm :corn:

Definitely. Either way... its something to be happy about. Congrats on the good numbers bud!

:headbang: Especially since I was only hoping for 350ish. Feels strong now. Once I save up a little money for a diff swap, I'll take it to the dragstrip and see if I can get some good numbers there:drive:

Very high

My car dyno at 360 RWHP with Kook long tube header, high flow cats, K&N intake and Corsa.

I think you're forgetting that you have a 5.7L Gen III LS6 (346 CID) and he has a 6.0L Gen IV LS2 (376 CID).

Damn nice numbers for the mods...

I managed 369.85 peak hp with mods listed in my sig. Baseline was 345.9. Only a 25ish hp gain.
It was running dangerously lean at 5k on the baseline. Somewhere in the 14.X:1 ratio.
