Add to S/C motor? Headers/Cam questions
New Lingenfelter Magna Supercharged owner with questions.
My car still retains the stock manifolds, and that bugs the crap out of me, so here is what I want to do.
Car is a LS1 corvette, with Magan Charger set up @ 5.5 PSI.
What would I gain if I added
1. Long Tubes w/high flow cats
2. A small but decent Camshaft
AND what all other that a retune would I need to do? I think I was told a Pully change, which I do not understand.
So the 2 big questions is, What would I gain in power, and what all would I need to do? Right now at 5.5 PSI boost, the car makes 440 RWHP.
I really would have thought Headers, Cam would have picked it up a little more than 40 hp. Seems to me in the past my LS1 engines respond HUGE to a cam swap, and I would have thought the headers would just open up a S/C engine.
Sometime tomorrow I will PM you my invoice # where you did the original work, so that you will know exactly what I have now. And then I will call you next week to discuss.

The last thing that we want to do is over promise and under deliver. You mentioned a small but decent cam, so I did not want to make any unrealistic claims. Please send me a copy of your invoice and we can pull up the history on the car and see what we can do!! Have a good weekend!
I have PM'ed you my invoice # along with a few details, it should be enough for you to know what I have, and make recommendations.
I will call you sometime Thursday.
ALSO, when you look at my Dyno Sheets, will you know at what Boost it was tested?
