    2006 dyno results and 2004 Ls6 vs 2006 Ls2

    Here are the results which are SAE corrected (SAE is the std accepted calculation which adjusts for temp, elevation and humidity) 1st graph is for my 2006 Ls2 V and the 2nd one is another customers 2004 Ls6 v VS my 2006 Ls2 v. The only difference is that the 2004 has Corsa and CAI and my 2006 has only Corsa

    What are the numbers???? These were done on the same dyno? CAI shouldnt be worth more than 2 or 3 rwhp with Corsa as the only other mod.

    Damn, the '04 needs a tune. Look at the A/F dip down.

    338rwhp/338rwtq are about average numbers for your LS2. Looks good. Hey...I wonder what I predicted yesterday? http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...-tomorrow.html

    Pretty damn good guess!

    Re: 2006 dyno results and 2004 Ls6 vs 2006 Ls2

    Yeah I am pretty happy with the results 91 octane fuel... the torque difference is the big difference between the ls2 and ls6 (20ft-lbs more for the Ls2) I figure if I had a CAI the number would be in the 340 range. Next will be adding CAI and tune for about 15 more hp (353 rwhp) Anyone know what the driveline deduct is for the CTS v 15% ..20% curious on gross hp based on these numbers

    Re: 2006 dyno results and 2004 Ls6 vs 2006 Ls2

    and the LS6 vs LS2 debate continues...

    driveline reduction is about 17.5% from what i have read on here

    CAI intake on my LS6 netted me 7whp -- 336hp-330tq on cheapo 91o midgrade that i hadn't had a chance to burn off before dyno day-- i doubt it will do much more for a LS2

    imo, something is wrong with the LS6 car besides needing a tune, liquidvenoms stock 05 threw down 229hp/22xtq, a LS6 with CAI and Corsa should be putting down numbers well above the ones on that graph..

    Re: 2006 dyno results and 2004 Ls6 vs 2006 Ls2

    17.5 % loss for drivetrain would then put me at 410hp gross...right? Also how do you interpert the Air/fuel graph lean vs rich etc...I should have ran 93 octane instead of 91

    Re: 2006 dyno results and 2004 Ls6 vs 2006 Ls2

    My car car feels strong, but I dyno it two weeks ago and it put down a baseline of 311 hp. My air/fuel was 10.8:1. After my tune and turning off alot of crap it went up to 331 hp, with an A/F holding @ 12.5:1. Going into the dyno I was still expecting my untuned car to put down right around what it did tuned. I am starting to think looking at everyones A/F ratios Cadillac didn't think owners were going to use premuim fuel!

    Dyno numbers are hard to compare unless they are on the same dyno. It was great when we had 12 Vs on the same dyno within 3 hours of eachother. We got a good idea of where the LS2/6 compared. I guess if you dont like TQ go with a LS6.

    Some cars seem to get bad stock tunes. Was it Backdoc, who gained like 40rwhp with just a W4M tune?
    @0rwhp gain with a tune isn't bad. Dynos are all different. Don't worry about the final numbers. The important number is how much you gained.
