Hi Kids,

This morning I did my first chassis dyno run to get the 'before' graph (next week I should be getting Maggie + Corsa Sport). Not real sure about the dyno place, kind of hole-in-the-wall, but the guy seemed to know what he was doing with the DynoJet. He had to move six Dodge Neon SRT4's out of the way before I could back in to do the run; couple more SRT's up on lifts, with an SRT and an RX7 parked under the lifts. He said the shop owns the fastest SRT on record; it makes better than 600 HP he sez. And those cars are TINY, and some of them were stealthy! Custom turbos and big bottles of N02 in the trunks. I'm going to be properly respectful if I run across any on the roads. :suspense:

Mileage: 8,800
Conditions: 62*F, 37.8% humidity, 29.00 Hg.
Top run (SAE & smoothed): 320 HP; 314 torque
Top run (standard): 328 HP; 324 torque

Max power came at around 5800; max torque at around 4800. Air/fuel ratio moved from 12 to 11 as the power stayed on (seems rich to me...?).

Little disappointed since most everyone seems to talk closer to 330 HP stock, with at least one post I remember being closer to 340. The good news is what you feel in the seat of your pants: the torque curve is pretty damned flat across the whole power band.

So... what numbers did you all get on your stock V's?

How many miles do you have on it? Most LS-1 based engines do not make max power until they have about 10,000 miles on them.

Thanks, I edited the post to add that & to make it more tabular-ish.

I only have 1300 miles on my 05 V and it feels like it's getting more powerful. No dyno around here, except for the seat of my pants!

Dang, it's not looking good for me. Maybe I shoulda waxed it first?

I got 333 RWHP and 333 RWT on the stock engine. Since the addition of the Corsa Exhaust and StealthV FFV and "DTE" Stage II tune, I'm not sure what I'm producing at the rear wheels. I will fine out in April after the headers go on. :bouncy: :burn:

Most of the above results are not running "donkey piss" 91 octane to quote a CA tuner. Probably where the small difference is.
