Curious of your experience after 6 to 12 months with one of these kits.
Considering the 630 or 650 kit.

I had the 650 for about 6 months until I did more mods and have had no issues what so ever.

What's in the 630 kit? I got Kooks headers, LPE intake tube, LPE 10% OD HB pulley and a tune from Behe. Looking at my baseline to final gains, I'm at 630 crank hp. Have had it for a year, now, and a couple days on the road course. Car runs great without a single issue...

Have had the LPE installed 630 since the end of March 2010.

Everything has been perfect...I have 34k on the odometer...its a daily driver...and I am finding that my SRT 10 gets fewer and fewer trips out of the garage...

I love the LPE modded V2...

Having the 630 would you consider going with the 650 or the 700. How is the drivability of the 630?

The 630 is unnoticeable until you want it. (Except for the Lingenfelter logos artfully placed by LPE, and a nice little growl and whisper from the SC)

I have not tracked the car...but my seat of the pants dyno says it is faster than my truck (11.70's).

First I am totally satisfied with the 630. That comment needs to be considered 'relative' since I have a "high" hp alternative in the garage. So I have not even considered the 650 or 700 mods. I can say that I would have no compunctions about dropping the V2 off at LPE to have either one done. They are a totally professional organization with generations of reputation on the line with every build.

LPE in the parlance of my students: "ROCKS!"

I've got the 630 kit, had the car a year 9-months, 10,000 miles and no issues I think it's a good value. I swapped with a buddy who had a stock V2 and the difference in acceleration is very noticeable.

Only downside is the A6 can't keep up with the RPM rush from 1-2, 2-3 if you really get on it, will bump off the limiter.

My lpe 630 vs stock 09 v last night in not so good air and bad traction was 12.23@120.9 vs 12.7@113 and it drives just like stock. But I have only had my car back a week.

if you have or thinking of getting this mod u prob want to invest in a heat exchanger too.

Is a larger heat exchanger need for the 630 Lingenfelter modification if the car has a manual transmission and do you need a bigger exchanger water pump if you size up the heat exchanger.

transmission type doesnt matter. i dont think you need a larger water pump.

I did the 630 LPE package probably in '09.
But shortly after I went to the Vette Doctors on Long Island and they did AR long tube headers and then actually did their own tune. They showed me that Lingenfelter was very conservative and really didn't tweek it much.
The Vette Doctors made my car into a F**kin' animal with their awesome tune, where I can blow almost anything away. The power I have is insane now.

Im actually glad to hear they stay on the conservative side. I'm planning on the 700hp package and if that is tuned on the conservative side and still puts 620 to the wheels i'll be a happy camper

Nope, you don't need a heat exchanger.

LPE in the parlance of my students: "ROCKS!"I see all these guys wanting crazy hp, but I love that I have a car that teeters between useable traction and nonstop wheelspin. I can still burn 'em up through 1st and 2nd gear if I want. But it's still a great road car...

Thanks for the reply's. Sounds like it is a solid option, at a reasonable price with a warranty. I think I will be doing this.

So this 630 package is pretty much a 9.5 pulley, tune and intake? Maybe around 560-570ish at the wheels?

no its a 2.55 upper but that makes the same power as a 9.5 lower.

Manny - You'd be lucky through an M6 with a strong baseline motor. Mine made 506/508 RWHp/TQ through the A6 which roughly equates to 630/630 with 20% parasitic loss.

My V has had it since the previous owner starting at around 500 miles. Now it has 8000. I just put a heat exchanger on it, Airaid CAI, and finessed the tune. Feels pretty fast compared to my 550rwhp 08Z I had prior. I can feel the power more in this car due to its 1000lbs more planting to the ground :)
