    The first thing you would need is alot of money, and little care that you're spending copious amounts of it to make what essentially a stock LS1 with a $100 exhaust makes.

    Hi UP THE RED VS,

    Thank you for your enquiry:

    To get a genuine 200rwkw in a NA V6 ecotec on 98 octane fuel isn't an easy task and would require a serious build. To give you an idea we're talking about bumping the rev limit up to around +8k, comp of around 11:1, cam with a duration of around +230, massively ported heads, custom made inlet manifold and probably custom made extractors. Thinking about what I’ve just written will probably make more then 200 however these are some of the things that need to be considered. If you’re planning on using E85 fuel then you’ll definitely be able to get away with a cheaper build, being able to get away with more comp, smaller cam and heads etc. Some of our speedway customers running a standard throttle throttle body and intake manifold on 98 octane fuel have nudged close to the 200rwkw.

    Hope this helps

    If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask

    Kindest Regards,
    Steve

    You spend $5k on a Raptor and forget n/a. 200 rwkw done. Trying to do it n/a, times that figure by two or more.

    If you do it in something like a vn-vs, you have the instant advantage over any ls1, cos they only fit them to boat anchors ;)

    Anything is possible with the right cash flying around. A 200rwkw ecotec would not be streetable.

    COME racing in Victoria claim that their stroked Ecotec is good for 220 kW at the fly wheel so that would be a good start. It's 6500 for the complete engine though. That also include a bullet crank, which are pretty valuable on their own.

    a supercharger might be the go the, so the next question is a l67 swap or bolt one onto the current ecotec?

    L67 conversion is probably cheaper. But a bolt on will probably give more grunt. I'm playing to buy an L67 wreck and put that motor in my car as it is more discreet.

    I can claim my penis makes 400ft/lb of torque, but would you pay $6500 for it?

    The billet stroker kit is $5000 on its own so as a complete engine man that's not a bad price really... Ported heads n what not as well or is that just the short block?

    Regardless of engine type, at the end the day if you want a reliable powerful engine internal upgrades will need to be made, which are costly. There are some exceptions to this which come in mind such as some Toyota engines which can reliably pump out much more power then factory.
