    new car

    i just got my new ride, 1999 z28 m6. it has ported 853 heads, thunder racing cam, arp bolts, diamond pistons, ls6 intake, wires, pacesetters and a sts rear turbo with intercooler with stock ls6 injectors but ive got a a-1000 fuel pump, guy said it made 500 rwhp and tq on 4 pounds. im wondering what you guys think it might make after i get injectors and turn the boost up?

    thanks in advance for your input

    yea all the ones youve prolly seen on 8 pounds werent forged. forged ls1's could handle 22 if everything is set up right, hey your in kilgore thats not too far from me

    well, my first piece of advice would be to ditch the longtube headers, get that spool time up a little, then wrap ALL of your exhaust pieces and put a wideband in the tail pipe after the turbo so you can see real AFR readings.

    Next, Diamond pistons, so they are forged, did he tell you what the compression on the motor is??

    can you find out??

    this will determine what can be done. Also, whats the specs on that cam??

    you have p.o.s heads on your car by the way...buying better ones should be top priority. with the previous owner's decision to run 853s..who knows were else he skimped ..just saying

    This. You need to know what compression you are running to know how much boost you can safely run. You don't want a lot of boost if your compression is already high.

    Also, I highly doubt is made 500rwhp on 4psi. I could be wrong though.

    What supporting mods does the car have to handle this said horsepower? Trans? Rear? Suspension?
