I picked up my car on Sunday, after the cam install. No numbers yet because it only has a rough base tune on it. My car is at Lindsay right now having some work done (UUC Mounts, Pinion Seal Recal, New Header Gaskets, New Corsa Cans, etc.) Today I also recieved a spare set of OEM rims to mount my Hoosiers on :D. Been a good week.

Car runs great, and definately pulls better, and sounds very nice. The idle is still abit high, but will be turned down once the final tune is layed down. I'll post before/after dyno numbers next week (hopefully).

Here is a rough before/after video.

Thanks Gene :D Tell your wife I have an LS6, not a truck motor :highfive:.

My wife hasn't noticed yet, then again, she hasn't ridden in it since the change.

My motor mounts are currently in pretty bad shape, and the engine is rocking around in there like crazy. I currious to see how much NVH the UUC Motor Mounts add in conjunction with a somewhat lumpy cam.

I also have the LS6 but damn! I can't wait to see the numbers once you it tuned. :worship:

Some day my Joey will grow up and get into big boy pants. I just don't have the extra funds and don't really want to void my 100k.

That thing will sound badddd assss when you get it tuned and the idle turned down a bit. The camera sound does it no justice.

Tune is pretty good, just not perfect. No CEL's yet, then again, no WOT blasts either. Most I've done is 2/3rds to about 5k (couldn't resist once or twice :D )

Normally, I'd say at least 265, however, they apparently run wide.

245. Maybe 255.

245/40's, and yes they run very wide. They look as wide as the Falken 275/35's I have on the rear of my car now.

My car has been at Lindsay since Wednesday, and I' stuck driving a loaner Camry from Enterprise. GAWD wat a POS. It rides around like a rumpa-rumpa van, and makes al kinds of weird noises. So much for Toyota quality.

I evidently don't know as much about early war planes as I thought I did, or do I? Either way, they gots nothing on my bolt-ons. I'm still think its a fake, anyway.:duck: I thought that might stir up some conversation, I love to argue with youtube comments.

It ain't even really tuned yet. My car does something similar without a cam on a cold start and it just runs a slight bit rich. I'm sure it will sound better fully tuned. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that you've owned a mustang in your lifetime.

Yes it was installed straight up no advance/retard.

It hasn't had it's final tune yet. Like I said in my intial post, and in the vid, right now idle is set to 975, so the car is doing exactly what it's ssupposed to do at the moment. It's not surgeing to that rpm, is set there.

Once the final tune is on, it should idle significantly lower, and have more lope.

That sounds awesome Chris. I'm looking forward to seeing/hearing the results of the tune.

However, when you want to put down some real power, bolt on a blower, you slacker! :)

I don't have an x-pipe, just the standard Corsa resonator.

If you want your car to sound right, on the least coin, weld in an x-pipe, and put some magnaflow mufflers out back, then get some headers and cat-delete lead pipes.

Start your research, and try to make a plan for where you want your mods to take you, it will save you money in the long run. Also try and hook up with some other local V owners and check out there mods to see if it's something you'll like.

1st mod you should do is a new shifter. Makes the whole driving experience 100% better.

Good luck.
