    Well, the quickest and easiest way is to find a car that has it…..then buy it. It doesn’t get any faster or easier then that.

    Are different electronics needed for the LS6 replacement?

    also cheap is a relative term ..1k extra isnt much when you have a 11-20k build

    i wont get into how to get the power...but i will give a a VERY rough guide to the supporting mods needed.

    9" rear end assembly 2300-4000 (depends greatly on 3rd member and other options and types of 9")

    new clutch and flywheel 700-2000

    new torque arm 400

    new panhard bar 200

    shocks 400-1k

    springs 300ish-400

    tires 1k -2k

    wheels 500-2k (used or not plays into the price)

    that is just a really rough run down on suspension etc supporting mods....as you can see ..saving a few bucks here and there wont mean anything when you are dealing with these price ranges
    The 500 rwhp is more for bragging rights and street racing. I have never taken my car to the track but street race all the time. There are a few fox body stangs around here and I have recently been trying to get them to race. They say they have around 400hp and about $5K-$7K in mods done. How much of it is the truth is up in the air. They do at least have a full exhaust however, because they sound good.

    crombie a little heads up on a black notchback. It is turboed and runs pretty dam good. all stock appearing "SLEEPER" the White hatch with the gunmetal wheel should not be a problem for you.

    There is a 515HP Package by Trick Flow for $3,099, possilbly on sale for the holidays, and with a FAST intake 90/90 and Long Tubes, with the right rear end, you'll be damn close to it. Most Dynos show up to 475 with the correct Mods. You could sale the heads and by 243cc heads for even more power. Always a thought.

    Does the white one have blue stripes? Does anyone here have the Trick Flow package you are talking about?

    Yeah but 500hp and 500rwhp are two different things
    That setup i believe is 515 with Headers
    You would need more than just an intake
    He has a fast 92 makes 440 rwhp

    The 515 package is a great one. Most dynos report 410-440whp depending on the dyno which is really good numbers. The package comes with heads, valve train, pushrods, cam, head gaskets, head bolts, exhaust gaskets and balancer bolt. They also include that this package should be used with a ls6 or fast intake manifold.
