hi, my name is Ricky, and this is my first post here, first off i'm gonna introduce my cars, i'm currently living in Saudi arabia which is located in middle east, and i LOVE the G8, and GM sells it in saudi arabia as "Chevy lumina SSV" and they stopped selling it in 2011. and they started selling the "Holden caprice" instead which is the same as "Caprice PPV" in the US. So i got a 2012 Holden caprice and parked it next to my 2012 camaro 2SS. i installed bolt-ons on both cars, and im gonna list the mods with Dyno results.
lets start with the caprice:
2012 frozen grey holden caprice.
Engine: L77 which is similar to L76 putting down 360 Engine HP.
Trans: 6L80 with trans cooler stock from GM located behind the front grill.
1- kooks LT headers (( without cats ))
2- magnaflow 2.5 catback (( i took a used camaro connection pipes from kooks and welded'em to my magnaflow so i can use them on my kooks))
3- Roto-Fab CAI
here is a video for the revs (( sorry it was a windy day ))
DynoJet results: 360.9 hp and the torque was 377 .. SAE corrected
Now with the Camaro:
2012 silver camaro.
1- Xforce LT headers (( without cats ))
2- Borla ATAK 2.5
3- Roto-Fab CAI
here is a video for the revs
DynoJet results: 364.4 hp and the torque was 383 .. SAE corrected
Now, im thinking about getting more HP, so im going with DOD-deletion kit with cam, and i don't care about fuel management since a full tank here is about 7 dollars (( 95 octane )) lol !!
.. so i have a punch of questions for you guys and i hope you'll help me with:
1- i'm gonna use the cars for DD, is it okay to install a cam for DD car ?
2- what is the worst case scenario with cam replacement, is it safe for the car ? because i've heard that once you install a cam, you'll face alot of problems, is that true ?
3- which is better for stock converter, Livernois 1C cam, or VMS 1.5 cam (( better in quality, HP gain ... etc ))
4- any recommendations for me before going throw with this project ?
PS: im gonna install the cam on both cars (( L99 and L77 ))
