I'd like to see a sticky-type thread showing before/after dyno numbers on mods. Example:

Corsa exhaust: before 290rwhp after 300rwhp

After owning 2 Lightnings, a C5, and an SS, I'm used to seeing EXACTLY what mod does what regarding HP/TQ gains.

Anyone else think this would be nice? :thumbs:

It IS a good idea, but dyno pulls are not cheap, and that's even if you have access to a dyno. I would expect the vendors, with their "project cars", to provide these numbers, but I am sure there are many "marketing" reasons they do not. Plus, who's gonna believe THEM? :D

I saw a device that plugs into the 12V accessory outlet and clips to the dash. The device records all sorts of data about your car's performance. I have no idea how it does it, how much it costs, or even what it's called. I saw it at the "Pontiacs In The Park" event. PM user "bronko91". He's the one who had it.

I've always dyno'd every part I've put on my "toys". Some i've done in combination, like headers back, but I still did the dyno and reported the gains. I think many people do. They just need to chime in!

I'll be reporting mine, but the toys are going to take a while. If you wish to paypal me some money so I can test and report though, I'm ok with that ;) I'll even pick up the dyno pulls. (I get em cheap)

I bought a Black/Black 6-speed, used with 750 miles on it. It's coming from Wisconsin if I can ever get the shipper to pick it up! I couldn't pass up the deal, especially compared to what the dealers want around here, plus tax, title, etc... which you don't pay on a used vehicle here!

Shoot me an email to [email protected] and we can swap good info...

Remember these cars have only been out for short time. Your only seeing the tip of
the iceburg as far as after market parts. Give it time, you'll see a bunch of postings
in the months to come about mods and HP.
