I was wondering if I was headed In the right direction. I have a steeds Sri. I getting ready to buy some more. Looking at an exhaust headers and toms tune. When I go to buy headers do I have to upgrade my cams or is that if I want more power. When I get all this what will my car be pushing. As for exhaust I was going to buy de stelath muffler and just have a local shop run the pipes. Thanks for the help

you dont need cams, a header alone wil suffice.

u dont need cams for a header. check the dyno thread for numbers....ud probly be around 130-135.

u dont need a tune if u dont do cams either.

I got FS stealth exhaust/OBX 4-1 header/FS CAI/and one of Toms tunes and I'm pushing 140WHP. Read my SIG. I would also recommend getting a tune if your planing on doing bolt ons weather you do it dyno or Tom I think it is verry benificail to know what your AFR is. I think tune is a must if you got bolt on's. IMO. And as for cams you don't need em' but if you want them then go w/ Crane stage 2's w/ springs and retainers I'm sure honhon will chime in as well as others soon enough

yeah, i knew u were around 135 range, so i based that number on u, and the fact he has an SRI, instead of the cai....which would be less power. so i figure 130 to 135.

prolly bout rite w/ 135 unless he's got a 2.3 like Jetrinka then hell be pushing in the 150 range, depending on the dyno too. if your going to dyno it and I recommend you do after all your mods you've listed are done then you need to take it back to the same dyno so you get an acurate messurement.

wonder if he will be surprised with that number when he comes back to look.

oh ya I just looked hes got ZX3 like me....ya, 136.8 is what I'm guessing. before Justin got his dynoed we had a some what poll on how much he'd get as far as WHP and I hit it on the nose....I forgot what it was now, but I was rite on w/ the guess. I think I said 158.6 or somthing like that.

That 130 stock is measured at the crank. Stock HP at the wheels should be at around 110 or so. With the mods it brings it up to around 135 or so which would be somewhere around 155 at the crank. So with the said mods you should be scratching stock ST territory as far as HP goes. ST came with around 130 at the wheels stock and 151 at the crank.

remember it is a light and nimble car so even though the numbers don't look huge on paper, the car still drives like something with much more hp [thumb]
