    Didn't look at your sig, but if you already have a catback system, lid and longtubes................ with a cam, a LS6 intake and a tune I would say yes.

    You should be real damn close if you don't hit the numbers. I don't see why you wouldn't unless it is high mileage.

    You have to attach your sig everytime. You should have no problems hitting those numbers. My buddy with a 02 SS with cam and bolt ons hit 415 rwhp.

    i have a 224 cam with the normal bolt ons, look in my sig for numbers.
    its rare for people to hit more than 390 with a 224 cam.

    If you do it will only be peak HP, and a good amount under the curve will be under 400... Go for usable HP, not peak #'s

    Yeah that's kinda what I thought. Mine was just Dyno'd on a Mustang Dyno on Friday. 2nd run was at 326hp. This is running pig rich. I was getting a base line on what I had before I got the headers installed and the Tune done. The shop foreman told me with a tune I should get around another 20 to 25 hp and with the headers another 30 or so. So I am looking at around 370 to 380 to the wheels without a cam. So with a cam, That should put me over 400 rwhp I would think. I guess we'll see soon.

    I think he means with a cam that small. There are tons of cars out there with stock heads hitting 400 rwhp cam only, but most of them are running bigger than a 224/224.
    My answer would be you probably could not see 400 rwhp on that cam. Now with something like a 231/233, it would be considerably easier to hit 400.

    Somne cars are just monsters. My 00SS with a cam and all bolt ons minus a ls6 intake dynoed 355rwhp. SOme cars are just freaks. I am a huge dis believer unless I see it but I saw this myself. I hope that is what he means. All of our cars are in the 230's and bigger.

    people are making over 400 rwhp but with bigger cams.

    you will not make anywhere close to 370 without a cam.

    The tuner's estimates are WAY optimistic. LT headers & tune together will probably get you an extra 30ish.
