Default NA SBE LS3 Record?




Ok guys Iíve had a few minutes to digest my results. Whatís most impressive to me is 7000 RPM the gain over my bolt on set up is 170 RWHP and 130 RWT we can not compare anything past that as the stock cam was done at 6800. If you can digest this. I was going through the traps at 6900-7000 and had a best of 132 MPH. Now back up to the peak numbers 110 RWHP peak gain and a loss of no peak torque. At 4500 there was a loss of about 20ish. The funny part is my car now carries torque at the same level as my bolt on horsepower but an additional 800 RPM of usable torque. I feel as though I could have turned it 8000 but with my injectors being so far gone I did not want to risk beating on it as lean as it was already. I think my results are what everyone had hoped they would be and then some. Keep in mind all I did was swap intakes and did not touch the tune. This was as true of a back to back comparison as your going to get. Thanks LOD SPEEDWORKS for being so patient with me to provide these independent test results. Here is a complete mod list GPI 281cc heads milled .042, cosmetic .040 head gaskets, 236/254 .646 .637 111+4 SS4 cam, BTR .660 springs, Johnson short travel lifters, Manton series 5 11/32 push rods, Smith brothers trunnion kit, Ewp, crank scraper, 25% ati crank pulley, 2Ēx2 1/4Ēx3Ē headers 3Ē x pipe, flex fuel, RPS twin carbon clutch and stage 2 dif with 4.10s, ram air and fast 102 mid length runners/ LOD speedworks 5th gen camaro intake modified to fit a C6, NW 102 Tb, LSA injectors (soon to be for sale along with a fast intake)Dyno is comparison of my bolt on set up/mid runner fast/ final numbers are of the LOD intake. Car is out of injector (replacements coming) and on E85.

Wow! Congratulations outstanding results.
Thats a 46 RWHP Gain from the Mid-Length Runner FAST to the
L.O.D. Intake with no other changes so far. That's Incredible,
how much was involved to fit your C6?

Dynos don't have records. A dyno is a tuning tool. If you go to the track and it runs in the 8.80s you might have a record.

I have a hood already cut up, it just needs the cowl and some body work.

A few hundred horsepower more with boost on a SBE LS3.

So, other than cutting and grinding on the back of the intake and cutting up the hood and doing a bunch of custom intake tubing, no big deal. Sometimes you gotta mod your car to mod your car, right?

I've not seen or heard of any tooning tool numbers higher than what you posted on a NA LS3. IMO there are just as many if not more variables at the track than on dyno's. Track tells how well the car works. Dyno tells what the engine is doing.

I got a kick out of your new torque curve following your old HP curve, except where the old power curve took a dump due to valve control (I presume), the new torque curve carries. it's really insane to think that you made your new torque curve mirror your old power curve.

The cool thing is the car drives pretty damn good and when you decide to let it eat it now tells you to hold the frig on because we are headed somewhere quickly. The torque curve cracks me up too Darth, you can honestly feel that up top when its just trying to rip the road up. I believe we finally got more then we all expected out of this set up and to me thats saying something! The LOD intake was more important then heads........ that is pretty crazy

as much as I liked the mid runner fast on my ls3, this kinda backs up my results. I gained around 4 mph switching from a fast mid runner to a low profile sniper

OK, so I just checked a few things from Lazer's "magic rockers" dyno thread. 468 HP on the stock heads and cam.
533 from the heads cam and fast mid -- 65 HP
576 adding the LOD -- 43 HP.
I'm betting on the old setup, the LOD would have done at least SOMETHING better than the fast.

So let me beat Hio to saying -- "Bolt ons FTW"

imagine the HP with a Stock ls3 intake. From what Iím told theyíre the best ls3 intake. No gains to be had

My buddies shop had an ls3 sbe vette with stock casting heads made 588 rwhp on a Dynojet.

Trapped almost 140 aswell.

Thanks MAVN good info! I did not figure it would be the most but for an off the shelf grind its a great cam for the combo.
