    Need Rough HP Guess

    I am looking at getting a vette with these mods-

    -Long Tube Headers,
    -hi-flo cats,
    -Borla Stinger exhaust,
    -Custom Cam and Ported Heads (don't have specs yet),
    -z06 intake manifold,
    -Nitrous with 75 Jets

    I am just trying to get a ballpark figure on the hp, I know the cam and head specs would help but I am waiting to hear back on those

    1.... I like to stay conservative.


    Although the heads/cam specs are extremely important because it depends a lot on what cam and heads you go with I would say 400+ to the wheels can be had with a decent sized cam and decent heads. I would give a window of like 380-420's with most average head/cam set ups. Partly opinion and mostly a guess though. Then you add in your spray on top of that.

    Sounds right--If it was an A4 then it would be closer to 360-380
