I just had it on a dyno, 167whp 157tg it was also 90 degrees out, with cooler temps im at about 170whp

I could to cams or cam gears, but its awesome running low 14's and telling people I just have a header and exhaust. lol

Other things help going fast, motormounts, front lower control arm bushings help alot, I have konis on the rear and turn them to almost full stiff, this gets you a nice holeshot.
