    Honestly....who gives a fuck?

    Get the car to a drag strip and see how it does there....then ask.
    I don't mean to sound like an ass....but dyno numbers can easily be adjusted by whomever is operating said dyno.
    I do my best to avoid dyno goals....

    Wow! Mighty strong reply there Mr. Luos! But I understand your disposition on the matter........based on the totality of your comment I RESPECTFULLY see your point of view........ON THE OTHER HAND anyone else who has a REASONABLE horsepower range for me based on EXPERIENCE w/this cam & set-up please share....and if you can PLEASE come with respect and proper language, something most of us learned in grade school or at church............thanks.......

    I going to estimate somewhere between 375-400 rwhp.....assuming you tuned the PCM to go with the cam.

    Thanks for the reply.........Yeah I'm hoping for something close to that range......It was tuned specifically for that cam and drives great. Thanks again.....

    Sorry...was drunk.
    But that is still my view on it.


    A stingy Mustang dyno may be 350RWHP for you....and a loose DynoJet may show 410RWHP.
    The only real way to know how much power it is making is to take it to the track....trap speed will tell you better than a dyno.

    Personally not a fan of the GTECH stuff....they are accurate, but cost too much.

    I would say 365-370 RWHP range with your mods, but like luos said, dyno numbers really don't mean much. ETs and trap speeds are really more relevant than any dyno number. Dyno numbers don't account for vehicle weight or the ability to use the HP you have. If you have 900 HP but can't plant it and run a 13 I wouldn't be proud of that.

    Well said.......Yeah, I studied up on Mr. Luos' comment (about track numbers) and it makes a lot of sense. I guess since I've never been to a track I never looked at it that way. Live and learn........Thanks for your post.......

    With bolt-ons alone and an m6 it averages about 350rwhp. Factor in about 15% drivetrain loss-but i'll let you do that math.

    370-380 until you get a quality rear end.
