    1 7/8th for stock internal?

    hey im currently running 1 3/4 long tube 4 into 1 headers with a 3 inch collector. i was wondering if changing to a 1 7/8 primary would give any top end gains on a stock internals ls1? setup is fast 90/90 (to be ported) and fitting a meziere and 25% udp. thanks,
    Jake,

    I believe above 3000rpm the gains are around 8hp going from Pacesetters to TSP 1 7/8ths according to TSPs dyno comparison.

    Just to let you know, there was a small loss of torque below 3000rpms though...

    I don't think the gains are worth it...unless you are able to sell the ones you have for a decent amount.

    If you are geared properly...they will shave off a little of your ET.

    Jake,
    Heads/cam? Those stock as well?

    Gears? A4/M6?



    I don't know exactly what cam/heads TSP used to get 9HP gains. Stock or otherwise.
    May be a better way to shave off a couple tenths than getting that little gain on the primaries.

    I would say the 1 3/4" headers are perfectly fine.


    I didn't even consider the 1 7/8" until I up'd the cubes.

    A full 1/4 mile?
    Supercharger? Nitrous?
    10 second with stock heads and cam requires a power adder.


    Is the timing/length different down under?

    Yeah its the full 1/4 mile. No power adders allowed and no nitrous either! Its not impossible the current record here in australia is 11.07. I read on another forum of a guy with a firebird who ran a 10.6x stock internals, which is amazing. at the moment ive run an 11.4 and still have lots of ways to remove weight and add a bit of power here and there, and at the pointy end 3-5hp is huge. here is a profile on my car

    Thanks for you help.

    Very cool car!!!


    What does it weigh?
    You would probably get 6-7RWHP (my guess) above 3500-3700 RPM's with the larger primaries.

    Thanks mate! its basically like a gto but with a tub in the back.
    out of the factory it weighs about 1600 kg or 3550 pounds. but with some light weight parts i am getting and have got it should be around 3000 pounds or so. its got irs suspension which doesnt help launches but, i have done a 1.6 60ft on the 3.9 and am chasing a 1.5 with the 4.11 and less weight maybe a high 1.4
    ive got a broken arm at the moment so i cant drive it but im hangin to get back out there.

    TSP did the test on a completely stock motor with the exception of the fact that it had a Fast intake. Other than that it was bone stock.
