    4.11's are still completely freeway friendly with a lockup 4 speed.

    I'd consider 3.7's but no lower

    Pretty happy with that number if I were you. The ol ls2 are known to get pretty close to 400rwhp just with a cam swap, although the standard can in them works pretty well.

    The VS won't know what's hit it

    Yeah, I'm real happy with that. I was thinking 230ish due to single exhaust and v6 airbox. 39 degrees in the dyno room

    LS2 has the Cathedral port 241 heads right? So no changes needed there but assuming its still stock I think the LS2 intake is really poor so changing it along with a cam upgrade should do some decent numbers. Although getting something like a FAST manifold is pricey down here.

    Dynos apply correction due to ambient temp humidity and barometric pressure don't they

    Doesn't that account for the hot day

    243 heads on Ls2. I'd like to do some minor mods and get 265ish without fucking the awesomeness of this car. Lsxr intake manifold, a intake better than the V6 one and maybe a varex type valve to bypass the rear muffler. Open to suggestions. Hopefully my kid roster allows a WSID visit in the near future

    Sorry! I actually meant to type 243, habit as I have ported 241. So yeah, manifold and intake, OTRCAI is out I assume so you would be looking at an enclosed Pod filter? VCM used to make a decent one.

    Yeah can't do OTRCAI with this body style. The standard front bar wouldn't feed an airbox real well, I'll look at aftermarket bars to see if they can look reasonably oem or maybe a dual airbox setup.

    Not bad. With 217rwkw I ran 11.9 in my vz, was a 4500 convertor though.

    Make your own massive sealed Mace/Starr style airbox that should help it...then revert back to current airbox for DD quietness.

    Already needs the radials for wsid with irs & 250rwkw.

    With luck low 12's but who knows with tall gears/std stally.


    Should chirp 2nd now...

    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    I'd like another 15kw without ruining the near perfect combo. Maybe airbox, 3.5 inch rear muffler and lsxr

    Ls2 cam or similar + head shave would give it the extra grunt yet keep stock standard manners.

    Pretty sure Dale had a cam for ve auto commonwhores that kept factory stally & made a lot more torque.

    243 heads work better for this.

    Yes but LS2 cam will go near 300 with the better heads and stock manners/economy

    Do it all the time

    Your ls3 VH? Lol
    They seem to pop up everywhere these days but I used to get them from eagle years ago for around 1000 a pair complete
    You'll need intake rockers and a square port intake
