There's a chance that might end up being slightly faster than your Mystique....maybe.

 

 

Ya with the new SVT speedo in it that Stique will do 160....... :lol:

 

I know my SE does :bleh:

He'll have to do a lot more than install a new engine to even TOUCH a Z07.

Completely uneducated opinion. Do your homework.

 

They're Z06's not Z07.

Stock LS7 Z06 = ~465 RWHP average.

Bolt on's gets em into 510 range....

13 more ci, ported heads, much MUCH nastier cam, way better exhaust, more compression, my car is only a little heavier than the vette....

 

The EXACT combo i'm putting in has dyno'd 580RWHP through an unlocked stall auto and a very conservative tune.

 

My 6 speed will dyno higher.

 

I can assure you it will be THEM who will have to do more to TOUCH me.

Read a little on that forum thread you posted.

Sounds like an awesome project. I'm a die-hard Ford/Mustang guy but I appreciate all things that make power and those LSx motors are very sweet.

I saw Erik Koenig/HKE mentioned and he helped me with my first 427W SBF. He is great to deal with, knows his stuff and will talk to you at length when you get him on the phone. Sounds like you got everything planned out , but if you haven't, I'd seriously consider using him.

Also, nothing makes 550rwhp EASILY in a NA streetable package. You can get there, but to say easily is a bit presumptive.

Good luck.

Here's a pic of my in-progress 427/88mm project, should make 800rwhp EASILY :P

ah... I was thinking of the Z07/SS/Blue Devil.... now known as the ZR1. Either way... Z06 or ZR1, your "lowly" Trans Am will shame some very expensive cars.

Very true on the not being easy to put down 550 RWHP n/a. Nor is it cheap.

 

You have a F-ing sweet a$$ foxbody! I used to be big into the 87-93 foxes. My fav was a 90 Sport LX I had. Nothing close to what you're doing but back in the 90's it would hold it's own after lots o mods.

 

Love your car!

Lol never knew the new ZR1 was called the Z07. Logical tho.

 

Thanks for the props on my T/A. :lol:

B) Then there was all the other times when the Officer said something like Oh your in the Corps, so was I and you better watch out there are a lot of Cops on the road..... and they parted ways...

Thanks man.

BTW, what quater mile times do F-bods like yours get with that power.

My LX did 452/448 hp/tq on a loaded Mustang dyno (probably 475 range Dynojet) and trapped 125.5mph @ 3300#.

The average 550RWHP F-body with traction and driver mod will get mid to low 11's.

 

My build took a turn for the worse....worse for the competition that is. :)

 

Decided to go with a fully built 408ci LQ9 iron block, patriot stage 3 6.0L heads, Procharger D-1SC pushing 12lbs right now...

 

Got the swap done in 3 days! Just got the thing fine tuned last night.

 

3rd gear cruising at 60mph @ 3500rpms, floor it and you get pinned to the seat, at about 70mph it starts smoking the tires! start feathering the throttle and at about 100 shift to 4th. What a kick in the a$$! This was done in the middle of the night, pitch black straight stretch of highway with NO lights or anything for at least 1 mile.

 

Here's a link to what I did.

I bet that's a beast.

 

What was the cost difference from the big bore LS-X N/A to the LQ9 S/C?

Really the LQ9 was cheaper than the big cube motor but....

then add the cost of the s/c and the s/c setup is a couple grand more.

But lots more hp too.!

Very very nice and done fast.

I love an NA build, but FI is the way to go.

Any pics?
