    What do you estimate the power to be?

    This actually isn't my car, but I know the mods (maybe not the brand on everything, but i'm pretty sure i got it). I haven't had an opportunity to get it dyno'd, so I want to see what you guys estimate it would be putting down.

    02 Camaro SS (35th anniversary), 6 speed.

    SLP Long tube headers
    SLP High flow cats
    SLP dual dual exhaust
    SLP lid
    SLP MAF sensor
    Smooth Bellows

    Besides that, my best 1/4 time in it was a 13.18 @ 108.* On the Eagle F1's. I have to let off HARD in first and second, otherwise it will spin all the way through both gears because of the 4.10's

    I can't post urls, so go to streetfire dot net, go to videos and search for "02 camaro ss" It's the top left one, at a strip.

    330RWHP is my guess. Maybe a little more with a good tune.

    Thanks, onyx.

    Anyone have any other guesstimates? I was hoping it was a little more then that, the fact that it could be in teh mid-upper 12's with stickier tires kinda hinted more also, but once again I don't know a ton about these cars (general car enthusiast, know more than you'd ever want to about most jeeps, and a decent amount about cars).

    I was reading around some threads, and people were saying 300ish rwhp stock, as the LS1 is underrated...30hp seems very minimal for those mods.

    SLP over-rates the mods power increases. A lot.

    330-335 RWHP sounds about right.
    I made 343/355 with similiar mods but with the stock 3.42 gears.

    That MAF isn't doing you any good.
    And just a recomendation, avoid SLP from here on out. There are better parts for better prices out there.
    Good luck with the car!!

    I'm lost. I have an 02 WS6 and it was my understanding that that the 02 model LS1's came highly underrated from the factory, producing approx. 310 RWHP. Are you all saying that with those mods there is only going to be a 20 RWHP gain? If so, why waste the money?

    the only thing making hp/tq is the lid and the exhuast/headers..once its tuned your looking at ALOT better numbers.

    Beginning mods.
    They show their strengths when you start modding the motor.

    Yep, put a large cam in that car without longtubes and see how it drives. It won't be pretty.

    Gotta have the basics before you can go further.

    its the gearing that will stop you. look for the " How fast will my 2001 SS go ?" thread on the third page i posted the top speeds that each gear can reach with 3.42. its around 177mph ..and thats if the speed limiter is raised and you have a LONG LONG LONG! straight away.

    330-340 would be my guess. One of my best friends has an 02 Anniversary SS, M6, bone fricking stock down to the paper filter that freak dynoed 350RWHP. After adding Hedman headers(junky IMO) the car dynoed 365RWHP. Couple weeks ago we added some 1.85 Comp rockers, 918s and hardened pushrods. He is hoping to see 375/380RWHP now and wants to see how close to 400RWHP he can push with boltons out of this freak. I am not trying to get your hopes up by any means, this car is a factory freak. Just wanted to show the comparison since they are both anniversary cars.

    Uhm...I think this car has mods that neither I nor the owner know about. At 155mph the car was doing 4300ish RPMs in 6th.
