    I need an experience Tuners !!!

    hey everyone ...
    will i owns a 1998 C5 which its an AUTOMATIC Transmission A/T, and fixed on it heads and cam with a fully Bolt-on and it came out of 410 WHP@6500 RPM
    and 372 WHP@4500 !!! ( torque )
    is there any way to increase that power ????
    I had install a 2500 torque converter with the original gear ratio 2.75 !!!
    my tuner said it has got more than 450 WHP, but the Torque converter eat a lots of my Horses !!!
    is there any possible way to reach more power without uninstalling the T/Q ?
    if there is tell me what or how .

    Yes, add a turbo, supercharger, nitrous, raise the comp ratio, do a 383 stroker bottom end.

    Dyno numbers are just numbers. There is tons of hidden HP in a torque converter. Were they able to lock the converter on the dyno? My car with a 4K stall(unlocked on the dyno) and only 390 or so RWHP runs quicker ET's than some cars who dynoed well into the 440-460 range. My car leaves hard and runs strong all the way to the revlimiter.

    Go get you a quarter mile time(ET) and be proud of that. Dyno numbers don't tell you how fast a car really is.

    410 sounds about right through an automatic.

    what heads/cam does it have? I would've went larger on the stall personally but like Y2K said...dyno numbers don't win races. The true test is at that track. The last thing you want to do is remove the stall.....only if you replace it with a larger one.
