well just got my vn onto the dyno and she pushed out 155rwhp.

Now its only got cat back exhaust, bigger throttle body, pod filter.

is that a normal amount of hp for what has been done to the motor?

its a vp v6 with manual box, and yes the standard clutch lets go at 155hp lol

115kw. thats not bad. manual box would read a little higher then a auto. not bad. do you know what it was before the mods? thats the only true way to see what sort of increase you have. before & after runs on the same dyno

You really don't need a button clutch for 115kW. Have you ever drive one? They don't exactly make for a comfortable daily driver.. More than likely your standard clutch is just fried, and a new one would sort you out. Failing that, a regular heavy duty clutch will do the job.

OK, just read your sig, does it have a standard cam? it seems a bit odd because the ecotec normally have a beter topend then the buicks.

Thats about what you would expect from a healthy manual V6 + exhaust, manuals do read a fair bit higher than autos
