I hear ya, if too much oil is used then it could affect it. I have always had k&n. I just don't oil the crap out of it. But if you feel better with a dry one then go with it.

Hang in there Les. I went on a dyno this spring down in Dayton that sent me packing back home with some numbers that did not look that great. Other guys posted that knew that dyno's characteristics and they brightened my day leaving me at 332 HP to the wheels with the correction factor in place. That was before headers so I will be heading down to a local dyno to see what I've after getting the headers +retune on last May.

I only thing i had to swap was the yoke.. The V6 has a smaller bolt circle than the V8. Do yourself a favor and put a new pinion seal in at that time. Mine leaked a little till i changed it. I used a camaro ss diff and replaced seal with camaro seal.

All Dynos are different. You can safely add about 10hp to these numbers. Either way were only going to get so far with bolt ons. There are things in the works now to upgrade it a bit more.
The dyno day, the other guys I talked to said that it seems off a few hp, will do another dyno in spring at different dyno.

Agreed, you can only get so far with bolt ons. I still expected a little higher based on the mods you have.
I think youre correct that the dyno was off by quite a few Hp.


I look forward to the future dyno results and will be getting the tune this spring. For now my pockets are recovering after the new catback

RSP Motorsports has a $$$$$ dyno that they say is dead on. Since I am done modding on the engine side it's time to lay down some coin and really see what this setup is giving me. Many dynos seem to have correction factors floating around so to me those ones are now a way of making noise while the car stands still. Don't get me wrong, it is a hoot to hear what sound the exhaust makes under full load and all that. It is going in tomorrow at 10 AM in some nice cool air. I will report later.

RSP MotorSports has an AWD Dyno and they service high end Eurocars.
The process is 2 hours long for just a power assessment but they are willing to tune if you come up with the coin. It is a half million $ dyno and I saw Bentleys, Porsches , Merc & Lexus metal out front. They are in Kilworth just west of London. Is there a high end dyno in Mississauga that's closer to you? Don't know if you want roll out this far but if future plans go right, I would still like to host a meet out this way.
