In the case of the LS1 cars it can be that some are factory freaks, but it also invovles the tranny, and rear end. A stock M6 and A4 are going to feel very different as will the difference in gearing that these cars came with from the factory. No matter what though all LS1s (from the same year) will engine dyno about the same on average.
    yeah i mispoke, the exhaust is the only thing that will affect it on the rollers

    Same heads, cam is slightly different but no bigger. Vette's actually can dyno a little less cause of their independant rear suspension.

    If your car is older then 2001 you will want an LS6 intake $300-450

    Lid $50-100

    Long tube headers $200 - 1200 (mostly depends on if you want stainless or not)

    Exhaust $500-750 (I prefer getting custom true duals if you can find a good shop)

    Cam $400-500 (I prefer a milder cam since mine is a daily driver 226/228 .585/.588 LSA 112, get a LSA of 114 for a smoother idle) Lots of great cam choices to pick from

    With the cam you will need:
    Springs $255 (Patriot Gold Double Springs, should be more then enough for most cams)

    Tune $400-500

    While you are doing a cam you might as well get:

    LS6 ported and shimmed oil pump $125-150

    LS2 timing chain $75-150


    This should put you right around 400RWHP with a M6. Granted each car is different and results may vary, but should be close.

    To make the car hook up well and stay in one piece you will need to upgrade:

    Rear end $2400-3000

    For manuals the clutch $400-700

    I am not to sure on how well the autos are holding up to this kind of power, but I am sure someone will chime in. I have also left out the little things like spark plugs, gaskets, filters, etc mostly because I am lazy and it will depend on how your vehicle.
    if you don't mind me asking what do you mean by Lid? what is that exactly. I'm new at this i have already installed on my T/A 2001 A4 formula the following:

    Pacesetter LT 3" headers
    pacesetter Y-pipe
    magnaflow Catback
    K&N filter
    I just wanna know what is the lid you're talking about

    No problem, here is a link that should show you what I am talking about (just scroll down to the bottom).

    http://www.thunderracing.com/catalog...vid=3&pcid=182

    If you are patient enough sure you can find some for sale used. If you are lucky you might even have one on your car already.
