I will post the graph once I get it. Spent the day at RevXtreme in Tampa on the dyno. Car was tuned by Chris Adams @ RevXtreme.

Mods: K&N Flat Panel, Kooks 1 3/4 Long Tubes, No Cats, Magnaflow Exhaust, and NGK Tr-55 Plugs

Ended up with 359.xx rwhp. Waiting for the graph in my email so I could tell you guys the torque, a/f, and post a pic.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the install, and troubleshooting.

Next mods: Wheel hop kit, thermostat, port n polish throttle body, and a z06 oem clutch and flywheel setup.

Not sure of the temp. Does 359 seem low to you guys. I remeber csp dynoed over 370 with a similar setup....

Depends on the type of dyno. Was it a dynojet or mustang dyno ?

I got 359 on a dynojet too. Those are not bad numbers at all.

I also had mine dyno'd at Speed Inc. I want to say the have a dynojet and not a mustang? but don't quote me on it, I'll find out Saturday when I go there. I threw down 374rwhp and 359rwtq with Kooks 1 3/4", Offroad Pipes, Corsa Catback, LPE Cai, looking for a cam to put me over 400 to the wheels, without being tooooo loud... (lol and that's still less than 1/2 of what rlj5 is putting to the pavement, his car is sick! :worship:)

Speed Inc. seems like they have a VERY generous dyno. Either that or the tech is entering correcting factors to get you what you want to see....

Speed Inc. is a very knowledgeable shop. The guys over there are top notch. ls1tech.com praises them non stop. You should come check them out, April 26th they are having their Open House. There will be a ton of cars that show up. A couple V's, mainly f-bodys an so on, but it will still be a great time. I also heard some vendors will be there with some nice discounts??

:yeah:

It's Ok to look and compare everyone's dyno results across the ownership to make sure you're in the ballpark. But it's really more important (IMO) to get a baseline dyno on your car before you start modding it, and then to compare any increases (or decreases) once things are changed. Preferably all done on the same machine. That tells you how much of a difference anything is making on your car.
Just FYI here was my CTS-V after adding headers (Kooks 1/78) and F.F. cats, and retuned. It had K&N drop in, headers, f.f. cats, Corsa, and tuned on a dynojet.

Yea speed inc has been known for "producing" numbers that tend to be high. Theres many ways to load/unload/screw with the settings of the dyno

You are in Tampa, FL? Let's meet up. I want to hear your car, so I can decide if I want headers.

I would also be willing to jump on that dyno to get some baseline numbers. My V is stock except for a lingenfelter intake.
