    Comp cam 232/236 I got k&n fipk, catback, and shorties. they said the shorties were really restricting and that if i got LT's and an ORY then id be at about 390 to 400.

    get rid of the shortys and converter and you will gain atleast 40 rwhp.

    a few things:
    the shorties for one have to go!
    you already have a ls6 intake so thats good.
    did your dad install the cam correctly? did the dots line up? i agree with everyone else here though. that cam is WAY!!!! too big for shorties. Once you get better exhaust flow, you'll see a much better gain.

    Who tuned it? That's still low for cammed w/ headers. 01-02s usual stock dyno is around 315-320 rwhp. With catback/lid/headers you should be around 320-330rwhp. So at the most you only gained 9 rwhp with a tune?

    RPM in dallas tuned it and yea it was installed right and everything. I dont know what I should get next long tubes or a converter though. They said if I switched to Lt's then I should see around 390 to 400rwhp.

    either way, you're going to need both. you shouldnt have put that cam in there before you did your exhuast. the reversion on that cam is too much for the stock exhuast manifolds.

    RPM here in Dallas tuned your car? They installed my cam, retainers, springs, etc and then tuned my car and I gained 25 rwhp and 14rwtq and I only have a 224 cam, stock intake and stock manifolds w/cats. your cam results should be higher since you had a bigger cam installed. Those boys do good work. did you upgrade the springs, retainers, bases, pushrods, etc? It's not adding up? like nino asked, did you install the cam correctly? Where you there for the tune ( i was there for mine)? What about a dyno result sheet with A/F rations, etc.?

    Are you running an A4 or a 6-speed. If an A4, what kind of stall are you running?
