This 2015 Chevy SS Automatic had already laid the groundwork for future plans – coming in with a cold air intake and headers, putting down 380rwhp. This round of upgrades included our Phoenix Camshaft, along with a Circle D Torque Converter to make sure that the driveability stayed tame while obtaining as much sound and power as possible. To fortify the rest of the valvetrain, we installed our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit, along with a Melling 10296 oil pump. 63rwhp later we had a new car with added power and a killer idle!
“Oh…my…God!!! That’s is quite wonderful right there!!!!”
We loved this very clean 2015 Chevy SS. This customer reached out for the install of a full Kooks exhaust (1 7/8″ Long Tube Headers and Kooks catback). Not only did it look great, but it also greatly improved the exhaust tone as well. With a free flowing exhaust it’s now ready for a cam swap or supercharger install! After dyno tuning, the build yielded a 55 rwhp & 45 ft/lbs tq gain, ending up at 403 rwhp & 404 ft/lbs tq!
This car may look familiar – it was here last year for a heads and cam job (check it out HERE). Horsepower is addictive, we didn’t think it would take long for him to return! This time around we installed a TVS 2300 Heartbeat Supercharger kit. This is meant for the LS3 Camaro so it took a bit of modification, but worked out excellent in the end for a gain of 182rwhp on only 7.5lbs of boost! This is one serious daily driver…comfortable and ridiculously fast! Final numbers were 642 rwhp & 542 ft/lbs tq!
“Again, I can’t thank you all so much for what you do for me. Proud to show this car to anybody.”
This 2004 GTO came in with a misfire, which turned out to be a wiped cam lobe. We replaced the cam with one of our custom cam designs, and swapped out the lifters for a fresh set of LS7’s. With no other changes the car picked up 20 rwhp over where it was before, and the driveability was just as nice!
The perfect sleeper! This came in with a Rotofab Intake and Kooks headers, baselining about 345 rwhp. We added a mild PCM of NC Custom Cam and paired it with headwork from Advanced Induction (280cc package). We used our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit, along with a Melling 10296. The results were outstanding, 79 rwhp gain from a camshaft you can’t even hear!
This car previously visited for an install of Kooks Headers and a dyno tune (see blog HERE). This time around he was ready for more, looking to our Fury camshaft for an increase in power and better sound. The Fury cam is a nice mild cam, great for daily driving but still able to be heard at idle. Along with the cam, we added our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit, a Melling 10296 oil pump, and a COMP Trunion upgrade as well. This cam picked up 49rwhp!
You know you ‘got it bad’ when you can’t leave your new 2015 SS alone even for a month! This slick ’15 LS3 Automatic came in at 340rwhp & 344 ft/lbs tq. We added a stealthy custom PCM of NC Cam, Advanced Induction head work & ported intake manifold, Kooks Headers and Exhaust, Roto-Fab, LLC cold air intake and picked up 120rwhp & 86 ft/lbs tq, ending up at 460rwhp & 430 ft/lbs tq. A small Yank Performance Converters stall was added as well. Stock driveability with lots more power!
Impressive gains on this lovely 2004 GTO! 39rwhp & 37 ft/lbs of torque with Kooks Headers with Cats and a dyno tune. We also installed our catch can kit to keep oil from being ingested through the intake manifold. These mods make for a nice pick-me-up currently, and also lay the groundwork for future mods such as a cam or a supercharger!
We originally had this Chevy SS on the dyno a few months ago, tuning it for the cold air intake and headers. This winter he returned for an install of our Crazy Joe cam – wanting to pick up more power without sacrificing driveability or having to add a converter. Since this customer is also thinking of adding forced induction down the road, we wanted to make sure we gave him a cam that would work well now as well as later down the road!
Along with our Crazy Joe cam, we also installed our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam install kit, and a Melling 10296 oil pump to be safe. After the install, the car came around nicely during the street tuning and went back to the dyno for the final numbers, ending up at 441 rwhp & 421 ft/lbs of tq. Baselining around 391 & 394 rwhp, that made for a gain of around 47 rwhp from the cam alone!
This stealthy G8 came in with a cold air intake and Kooks mid-length headers, looking to obtain more power naturally aspirated. He was looking to retain good driveability on the stock torque converter as well, which was no problem! We put the car on the dyno for a baseline before tear down, where it put down 321 rwhp & 341 ft/lbs tq.
We decided to custom spec a cam to fit the bill – this ended up being a 219/235 with lift in the low .600’s. Since we wanted to eliminate the sketchy stock Displacement on Demand lifters, it was also a great time to port and polish the heads while they were off! We sent them off to Advanced Induction to apply their porting and polishing, as well as mill off a bit to bump the compression up.
With no other changes other than the heads and cam, we were able to find another 102 rwhp & 67 ft/lbs tq when returning to the dyno! The car still drove excellent, and also had a nice mild chop to it at idle as well. A few other parts we replaced to help beef up the engine while we were in there included our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit, a Melling 10296 Oil Pump, and a COMP Trunion upgrade as well.
