I have done some pretty common mods to my VT V6 and I am not sure if the power gain is where it should be. Anyway I have a set of Pacemaker headers, 2.5inch redback exhaust, SS inductions CAI, K&N air filter, Hiclone, TBS chip, iridum plugs, 8.8mm Top Gun Leads and run it on 98 boost. When I had my car at the Brock shop it made 170rwhp at the wheels and it was a very hot day. I was told that this was a good result - but of course I am going to be told this. Appreciate feedback and other power output for similar mods = cheers

If your looking for fairly noticeable power gains a v8 is the key. V6s dont get much power gain unless you do internals or boost it
