I would actually like to see a dyno comparison of a ported TB and intake. Maybe then it would finally answer the question if it is worth it in terms of $/HP. For example, forced induction is ~$50/HP...LT headers is ~$70/HP.

I have not yet dyno'd this car but eventually will. I know you know a thing or two Chally - I've read several of your posts. Wonder what would be your best guess regarding the HP on my car with all its mods?? I do know that it hauls ass!! And as she goes she picks up speed at exponential rates!!! The mechanic who previously owned it was doing a 426 build on it and liked to take it to the drag strip.

I'm more familiar with the 5.7 power gains (mostly through dyno sheets I find on the web). Never had my set-up on a dyno but I am pretty sure I'm not too far from similar builds which are putting down ~460HP to the wheels.

My swag on your setup is you gained ~40-45HP with these mods.

Stainless Works LT Headers
High flow cats
274 Comp Cam with vvt limiter

I personally don't buy into bigger TBs adding appreciable power unless you start going FI. I would love to see hard evidence that I am dead wrong though.

Thanks Chally - when I get it dyno'd I'll post the results for you.
