I want to know what kind of hp im gonna see, i have a 2003 lq4 full rebuild, dished pistons with Valve reliefs, stock untouched 243 heads, and a tsp 228r cam, I am getting a after market intake, any suggestions?...thats all i got can't really upgrade anything,as I am on a budget, I want to know what kind of power it will make, hoping it will be 400 rwhp + , going through a4, 373 ,10 bolt, Camaro...

Depending on the intake 400 or so is a good guess

Thank you, I was leaning towards Holley 820101(low profile sniper intake, I Know it's meant for boost applications, but I can get one for 200 bucks from a friend, do you think that will get 400+

That intake will do you no favors. The Sniper intake is made for high displacement high revving motors. You will lose low end power with it.

Yeah I figured, would a fast 92 /92 me enough?

Talking

without intake - 390-400hp, 380tq.....

10 bolt = sitting in driveway waiting on 9" / 12 bolt diff upgrade.
also invest in a 3600-4000 stall converter.

A Fast 92 or 102 will be your best bet
