well guys this is my first post here....and i have to say it feels a little weird being on here with having nothing but cobra mustangs in the past 6 years. (i am really sick of mustangs) but it feels good to come over to the darkside, that and my friends like me more now, anyways

my ride

06 Lemans Blue M6 Coupe
Z-51 3LT

have about $9000.00 to spend and i was thinking the following

-Stage 3R Livernois Ported Heads (Intake / 332 CFM, exhaust 230 CFM)
-Stage 2 Livernois Custom Grind Camshaft (Duration/232 @ .050, lift/.595)
-Ported F.A.S.T Intake manifold
-Ported 90mm throttle body
-Vararam Intake
-Corsa Sport Catback
-LG longtubes w/ xpipe (no cats)
-MTI shifter
-tune by livernois

i was going to go the F/I route but with the high compression of these engines and the fact that i have always gone that way, i figured some n/a power would be fun!

so what numbers should i expect and also e.t. estimates

thanks

Welcome to DC... projected horse power is hard to predict. Get a good base line run and use the same dyno to check your results. It sounds like your plan will make you very happy. I would suggest you put part of that money in tires & rims, the powers no good if you cant get it to the ground.

Howdy "POACHR", Welcome to DC. It'd be my guess that you should get around 440 to the wheels with that combo. :thumbsup:

well the numbers i found on customer cars at livernois were around 450-480 ranging because of stages done

and i will doing other things such as
ported fast intake
port match 90mm throttle body
and veraram intake

i think i will be right at or below 500

Cam choice will really help determine the powerband and numbers you'll actually put down. I'd put in a really streetable cam with hardly any lope, give it a slight bit of a sleeper type feel and keep the driveability of the car. Aggressive cams have advantages besides sounding badass, better HP and you'll turn better times at the track but street driving is near to none.

yeah that is why i think i want to go with a medium lift cam due to i want to drive probably every other day but i want it to sound badass...i am not concerned at all with the sleeper aspect. i want to strike fear in the competition.

the first video is what convinced me...and as far as drone it does not bug me, do forget i come from mustangs and they are some droning S.O.B.s

and i am still young (21) so i just want it loud and do not care about the side effects plus that is what the radio is for

hmm sounds an awful lot like me, my daily driver has dual side pipes, no cats no muffler, sure its loud but i never get cut off now :) also people seem to cross the street just that much faster now when im coming up.

greatest reason to have a loud car: if your passanger is boring/ annoying you just down shift a gear and but them on mute :laughing:

I have the Cartek 3X package and make 463rwhp. Check there website for the specs. I still have cats and do not have the fast intake yet. I need to have the tune tweaked?? I think there is a little more power to be found. I will be removing the cats and going with the fast intake after my road trip to Spring Mountain. I'll let everyone know the results.

Heads/cam, ported intake and throttle body, tuning and too much to list. Chekout cartek.net. I hope I can "legally" post their web address. I think they are a supporting vendor. If not I'm sorry patrick.
