    Hi, just for fun, any guesses what HP and rwkw I’ll end with after having Hi-torque performance do a cam (224/230) and cnc head package (no stally, keeping stock) done on my car?

    I have a 2009 VE SSV AUTO L76.
    Current engine mods-
    2.5” S/Steel KPM catback / Hi flow cats / Pacemaker headers (1.7/8” I think). VCM Otr.
    @348.6HP / 260 rwkw.

    I will be getting this done in the next week so I will have the result soon.

    320rwkw I reckon will be in the ballpark, having said that there are a hell of a lot of variables!
    Either way it'll be fun.
    Until it becomes normal.
    Then you buy a supercharger.
    And tyres.

    Ooh.. all guesses over 300rwkw so far, nice. It would be nice to hit 335+
    I’m only a few grand shy of getting a supercharger, but I want to change it up and I can’t wait any longer, so cam and heads for now.

    Great little cam the HTP01, nice power gain, sounds good, drives great with factory stall & boost friendly if that path is taken later.

    That comment didn’t reassure my anxious mind lol. Too little you think? I do want it a bit grumpier than it is now. I’ve had other quotes that recommended bigger cams that retain the stock stall but I wasn’t sold on them. Anyone have an HTP01cam, thoughts?

    Don’t bother doing cam/heads until you can afford a histall imo. Histall will give great results even with a stock engine.

    You can go a fairly large cam with stock stall but it won’t perform like it should, wont be great to live with in traffic and will be harder on the trans than a Histall. They’re no fun when they’re always pushing on the brakes - takes a lot more effort to drive and can be very frustrating.

    Hi, I can afford a high stall, HTP has recommenced not too, and it daily driven so I don’t want to change the manners too much. Would be fun though. Cnc heads is not necessary but I may as well get them now as I need a dod delete kit anyway. Considering new diff as well.

    Histall will improve manners markedly.

    Just my opinion, but I think spending money on a cam without a converter in these things leaves a lot on the table.

    Results were -
    437.7HP (+89.1)
    326.4rwkw (+66.4)
    Nice rumble. Haven’t driven it much yet but I did notice I need to push harder on the pedal while braking.
    The thermal fans seem to be always running which is annoying me. Any info on that?
    I’m very happy but never satisfied haha.
