New parts, what will I make?
So I have had my coilovers for my 07 for grabs for a while and said i would trade them for a victor jr intake upper/lower and a matching TB. So finally somebody is willing to do it so I will be recieving these soon.

I have windsor jr. heads, crane 2040 cam, forged keith black pistons/rods, 306 block, pacesetter longtubes to xpipe and M80's with GT40 intake n k&n cai.

I plan on dropping the victor jr intake and tb on with a matching elbow and a lunati cam Part Number: 20350525 or 61011.

Soon though I may be upgrading to the 331 DSS block in atleast a year.

Reason I dont go higher is because I am stationed in italy and I dont trust the gas enough to have over a 10:1 cr.

What is an estimate on my rwhp with the victor intake and tb? O and a tune

Also i figure since I already posted something I would give an update on whats up with it since I payed for it. So all the wiring had to be redone as far as electronics, the dents were knocked out and I found that they were bondo'd before so I have to have it redone and the whole car needs a paintjob anyways, I dropped my GT4's meant for my 07 on there and just fixed the inside offset with 1.5in spacers.... looks great btw. Rebuilt the trans for 400, rebuilt the rearend for 350 and rebuilt the steering sector for 40. SO, this car will be brand new here pretty soon and may not look the best but will be mechanically sound until I figure out how much it will cost to get a good paint job in italy.

Well first off, thanks for serving our country.

2nd…… HP off the info you gave, I'd guess 260-270 at the wheels. I'm on the smart phone app so I can't see your info, if your running an auto then lower that by 20-25. It always seems that dyno #'s are less than you expect. That's just a guess, someone will chime in who might of ran that setup.

5spd, I estimated around that as is before the parts... not sure after

drhoward 06-18-2013 11:10 AM

Ya I would think somewhere in the 270-280 rwhp range depending on how "generous" the dyno you're on is

Well what else couldnimdo before getting a stroker to hit over 300?

Duncan_GT 06-18-2013 02:32 PM

Why a 331? Go 363!

pedalhappy 06-18-2013 02:45 PM

What can I do to make over 3 without a stroker

bluebeastsrt 06-18-2013 02:45 PM

I don't see why with the parts listed you couldn't break 300WHP.

pedalhappy 06-18-2013 02:48 PM

OK so my tablet is acting up, I would go 363 but like I said I'll just go 331 for now because the car I would be at would be too high for the crappy Italian fuel. Trying not to ping or anything lol. 331 would keep me around 9.5 before I actually need good gas @10. I would love to. I also plan on adding towing after the stroker so it will have deep dish pistons like18 or more so I can crank em
