    what kinda horsepower?

    I've been looking and don't really find alot about what i'm wanting to know. I have an ls2 out of an 06 gto. has ported ls6 intake and ported 243's a s far as I was told.also told it had "stealth cam"228/228 .550lift. it doesnt sound cammed so how stealthy is a stealth cam? I'm not positive about the porting on heads and intake. but with the ls6 intake,longtubes with true duels, and a tune what kind of hp should it be making. and how much would the porting add if it were actually were done.and with the cam aswell. car is also t56. sorry if my typing sucks...i'm using a laptop with no fricken space bar...

    Go to a dyno shop and pay the 200 dollars to find out. If you are not sure what you have in the engine everything would be a guess. Do you have any race slips we can go from.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
    My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k

    the 10 bolt is a throw away rear. go 9" and save the time of doing the swap again.

    It all depends on how the bolts come out and go back in and how well the headers fit the firewall and subframe. If the bolts don't break and youy have no fitment issues, three hours sounds about right.

    Thats funny!! Isnt that the truth though..Thats the part about working on cars i dont enjoy crackin them knuckles and all the blood! But in the end its worth it. did you have to drop your engine an inch or so? to get the headers in ? I had mine done at shop but i was told that sometimes you have to loosen a few bolts and drop one side an inch or two?..BS or what?
