Hasnt Livernois dyno'd an SS , thought I saw that somewhere....just found the thread. They baselined an SS at 343 on their dyno and with tune 368. Different car at different time but a decent comparo.
I have seen as low as 330 and as high as 360 rwhp posted from different dynos.
So then throwing these two together gives you roughly....
Gain of approx 53 rwhp from a AirRaid, tune and SW full exhaust with cats. I am guessing around $3800ish installed? Those are very solid numbers . Would love to see the stock vs. mods dyno on same sheet from Livernois.
Wonder how much difference between the factory cat back and the SW catback with everything else as above?
Either the AirRaid intake is not what they claim OR the SW Full headers and exhaust for our car is not much of a gain AT ALL.
All of the info is right here in this forum.
The SS owned by LIVERNOIS was baseline Dyno'd and Dyno'd after Roto-Fab intake and their tune.
My SS was baseline Dyno'd and Dyno'd after Roto-Fab intake and their tune.
BOTH The SS owned by Livernois and myself Baselined Within several hp of each other showing just a few hp/tq +/- from each other.
After the Roto-Fab intake and Tune Both the Livernois SS and my SS ended within several hp/tq +/- from each other.
The OP's SS did not have a Baseline Dyno in stock form. HOWEVER, All 3 cars were tuned on the same EXACT Dyno and tuned by the same person.
The results from a $2,500 exhaust system in my mind in addition to the CAI/tune should yield more than 10hp/5lbs tq.
My car is 342/345 stock and 385/385 after CAI & tune
Livernois car 348/353 stock and 385.96/389 after CAI & tune
Pigmans car with baseline unknown ended up with 394.56/389 after AirRaid,Headers and full exhaust.
Roto-Fab claims 11hp/5tq with their CAI and no tune.
AirRaid, going by their own post here on the forum claims 21hp/12tq!! For only the addition of their Cone filter and air box with the Factory intake ducting still on the car? This was before they finished their intake. 21hp from slapping on a cone filter and no tune?
Something doesn't add up.
My only concern here is people buying an intake based off of claims that aren't realistic at all in my opinion.
The headers and exhaust, I really wanted to get either this setup or something similar. However $2,500+ for this system just doesn't have the gains that justify it to me any longer. I'll wait and see what a few others develop and decide after.
I was really excited to see the results from PigMans car as I have $$$ burning a hole in my car for mods.
Knowing all three cars were tuned on the same Dyno by the same person and the #s are such a minimal gain raised a Red flag for me to hold up and see what else comes to market.
Sorry for the Novel. I do like the sound of the SW exhaust system.
