Canadian Members - Cam Only Numbers

Hi guys, I just did a cam (mid 220's @ .050) and valve springs install on a M6 C5 and I'm pleased with the results. The car also has headers, LS6 intake and cold air filter. Before the cam and spring install, it made 325rwhp...After cam/springs and a road tune, it made 374hp / 378tq! Nearly 50rwhp Gain! We are hitting the dyno next week for a dyno tune and I'm thinking it could make another 10hp more with a/f fine tuning. Also a pulley and a ported TB will pickup 10more horse... So its very close to 400rwhp with great torque and minimal parts and a small cam with stock driving matters! If anybody would like a cam installed in the GTA please PM me.
I have a video clip of the idle : http://webhome.idirect.com/~ykwdxdtf/P1030133.MOV

'Vortech' s tuning with HPT. He is taking the car to the dyno next week to final tune it. He is really good, got it pretty close without a wideband on the street!

What is all included in a road tune?
07-17-2006, 01:05 PM
Everything except dyno use... WOT, driveability, fuel + timing changes, rev limiter changes, shift points if A4, fan settings, etc...
07-17-2006, 09:57 PM
What about heads do you install ?
07-17-2006, 10:12 PM
Yes I can install also.

Everything except dyno use... WOT, driveability, fuel + timing changes, rev limiter changes, shift points if A4, fan settings, etc...In order to assess a car's driveability issues one must data log the car's current set up. Getting fuel trims where you want them can be a gruelling process which include many hours of logging. Is this included in your tuning service?
07-25-2006, 08:09 PM
Yes it is-it's the only way to tune.
07-25-2006, 08:49 PM
Arun knows his shit! :)
Congrats on the great numbers :cheers:
