I would like to get high 300's in hp to 400. This is strictly a play car for me but I want it to be able to be a daily driver in realiability, etc.

    Anything specific I should look out for when seeing the car tomorrow? Already done Carfax, have dozen pictures, 2 hrs of conversations, etc. Feedback and info would be much appreciated! Thanks!
    Aftermarket air lid, LT headers and catback of your choice. Check out LS1sounds.com, GREAT site for you to listen to diff exhaust setups on our cars. How much are you looking to spend?? I would personally add some suspension mods first to put the power to the ground. Aftermarket LCA and SFC really help these cars out as far as reducing wheelhop and bodyflex.

    My 2000 made 332rwhp (in 98 degree weather) with Mac mids through Magnaflow cats, lid, and the stock slp catback that came with the Firehawk. And a tune. It's an A4, so at 20% loss, that's 415 to the crank. 400 crank is very easy with these cars. I'm assuming you mean rwhp, though. That costs a little more. Only $5000 more to go and that H/C/I package is mine!

    Just got off the dyno after headers, lid, y-pipe, and cutout. I made 343rwhp which is a 23rwhp gain. We will see what happens when I get a custom dyno tune.

    With a tune you would have definatley broke the 360rwhp mark.

    Basically full bolt-on for 400+ RWHP or u could go the easy way with a 75shot of Nitrous! Sense u got the 02 WS6 u already have the LS6 manifold an extra 15 rwhp than any other T/A.

    How much did you pay for your car Mrsracing?

    It's funny I read this because I just picked mine up, with 36k :P It's an 02 as well, but it's black, not sure what yours is (:

    It's an a4, one owner, now 2 but it was completely stock as well, ws6 and I got it for 12k cash.

    Exactly. You can make a dyno say whatever. No bolt on cars are makin >350 rwhp around here. Period. If he shows me timeslip showing mph>117 then maybe I'll believe it.

    Which translates to about a mid 12 second run. Not unheard of at all. You're obviously a good driver, doesn't mean your cars some kind of factory freak.

    With just a lid, and a "Billy Mays Tornado" in my intake I dynoed 535 RWHP. I'd post the dyno sheet but I lost it.

    My old 02 made 352RWHP and 350RWTQ with QTP headers, y-pipe, SLP LM2, lid, and a tune of course. If you have a M6 get 4.11's too

    Put a few stickers on it and you should be around 1000hp

    To answer a few questions. The GMMG Blackbird you are correct there are 50 made for the year however there are only 2 Black Convertibles which he has 1 of 2. I've looked at several others than have been for sale and realize there are 49 more that year. I'm not bragging on his car just telling you what it is.

    I picked my car up yesterday paid $16.5 for it. It is stock with the exception of a Flowmaster full system exhaust. Very clean, tight and is fun to drive. I have been getting alot of love in the last day around town.

    My screen name comes from a acronym for M. R. S. Racing it is not Mr. S Racing or Mrs Racing.

    Glad to be part of the LS1 family now and looking forward to having many good times with this car. I'll post pictures up once I get some.
