Finally I am going to dyno tonight. Ill be meeting gomer in trusville alabama so he can tune my car at walker dyno.

The previous owner dynoed at 399.4rwhp..with all the mods listed below EXCEPT! The tpis 90mm intake and 90mm tb...before that it just had a ls6 and ported tb and it did not have the new clutch and aluminum flywheel.

So anyone might wanna guess the power it'll make?

Im hoping to get it to 410rwhp...The tune that's on it is ok but I think gomer can maybe get a few more out of it possibly..and safely.

So maybe 415rwhp...that maybe stretching it...so anyone wanna guess?

If it's above 405 really ill be happy...just wondering how much the new intake and tb will pick it up over the old ls6?

Not sure which exit it is but Morrow Road is correct. It is right by a car lot. The dyno is beside the oil change building.

Get off at the Trussville exit off I-459. Cant remember the exit number.

Go right onto hwy11 If your coming from I-59 after you get onto hwy 11 you need to go through the 1st light that is beside Hooters and after you pass that light turn left right beside Trussville auto mart. Walkers is right behind that dealership :)..

Are the two dyno's the same..thats a factor also how many miles did the previous owner put on it?...that could also be a factor. Don't be disappointed if you don't pick up much especially if you're going from dynojet to mustang dyno. As long as you get those new mods dialed in thats most important

Im going to guess 415rwhp. But ya walkers is a dynojet.

Kev SS
09-18-2008, 02:38 PM
Yeah last time it was on a mustang dyno also i beleive..so yeah...as long as everythings dialed in il be happy..i know it'll make around 410rwhp.

He also had the car dynoed when it had 115,000 miles on it...now its has 118,000...prolly stop and pick up a new kn air filter two just to make sure it's flowing..it has a stock one right now.

bjamick
09-18-2008, 03:24 PM
Pull the filter out, it will make more power and also you dont have to worry about picking up any trash sitting still on the dyno ;).. Thats what alot of people do at the track to :).

Well I thought it did pretty good. 419.1rwhp and 370.8rwhp...so im just gonna say 420rwhp and 370rwhtq.

The car drive 10 times better...now I just gotta get my front driver side 02 fixed and get me some 26 pound injectors...and my stupid securtiy light fixed..bah.

But other than that gomer did awesome job as always ...I am over all very satisfied.

Im pretty sure I seen you yesterday in Trussville me and the woman went to eat at Jim n Nicks and as we were waiting to get on the Interstate right there across from hooters there was a black ss come through the light that was loud. We were in her civic.

Congrats on the #'s, but why do you need 26lb injectors or did you mean 28?

The dyno where blayke had it dynoed previously is a dynocom dyno. Should be same numers as dynojet, not like a mustang dyno. Also you need 42lb injectors, or at least 36s

Kev SS
09-21-2008, 09:26 PM
Yeah blayke did an awesome job at putting that car together. As soon as you as I get a rearend and get some wheels and dragradials Il go back to the track.

After you left I took it down the track a couple more times and leland did to but It would never hook...it spun threw first and all the way threw second..we both ran slow with it.

that's what Im saying...we need to have a fbody gathering on a sunday in birmingham. I work 6 days a week it would be hard for me to get away from the mines but I think a sunday would be good.

Yeah miles dont seem to hurt these cars. I bought a 98 trans am from a buddy a while back had 167000 miles on it...ran strong as ever.
