Took my car to the Dyno today. The car is almost bone stock, it has an AEM cold air that picks up behind the front bumper and has a complete Solo Exhaust. Now I have a slight odd ball on it because it has the auto Exhaust on a manual car. I was one of the testers for Solo I believe this was the second set of R/T Cats they built, the car has 7,000 miles with no tuning. ABSOLUTELY NONE we didnt even buy the diablo till last week not once did we see the CEL. First pull was with the car as it has been driven for the last 7,000 miles. (I do not have the dyno sheets right now but will post them early next week). On the first pull the car made 345Hp and 366Ft-lb. The air fuel ratio was at 12.2 so to those that are worried about this DONT BE. When the tuning was done the car was at 362Hp and 388Ft-lb. I took a video and the sound wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but I will try to get that up when the Dyno sheets are posted. There was a guy there watching and he had a blown 2000 Vette with a magnaflow exhaust he commented on how good the car sounded then I told him how quiet it is on the highway he immediately took down Solos name. Thank you Solo for your customer service and the opportunity to be a tester for you.
Was the 12.2 a/f ratio with the stock tune or a diabloSport canned tune?

The first pull was stock without the Diablo on it. I am attaching the dyno sheet but need to figure out how to do video.

Thats pretty good. It takes a bundle of mods combined to add up to that much increase over stock.

Your right at 6.1L SRT-8 power to the rear wheels with that setup.
Its unfortunate your sheet doesnt show a/f ratio.

They started off with the 93 tune but it didnt really make much difference. Ill tell you what though the guys at Fastlane woke this car up we tried the canned tune and it was just a little better than stock,

Here is the video:

So what is the current price on these now and do you offer additional stainless steel bung? The reason I ask is I need to re-attach my A/F gauge and need to weld another bung in on the drivers side if I were to go with your cats.

Thanks for any info

The current price is 774.50 shipped. We can add on an extra 02 bung wherever you want it. That would be 35 extra per bung. We would plug them, and you could remove the plug when you need to use the bung.

Anything that opens up that much hp will require custome tuning, Dyno based, or at least wideband O2, so you can use the preditor to increase 5-10% fuel to get the a/f ratio back to 12.5:1

Just short tube headers requires about +3% fuel, and that only yealds about +9hp, these high flow cats are more than double that.
