2014 V6 HP Question

I'm looking to buy BBK long tube headers, BBK o/r x-pipe, Bassani axleback and an SCT X4 tuner.

I already have an Airaid Synthaflow CAI installed so I was wondering if anybody knew a rough estimate of how much hp and/or tq I'd be sitting at after these were installed.

Thanks in advance!

That is going to be a raspy mess.

From the video/s I found on YouTube it seems like it'll be a lot less raspier than the Roush axleback I have on now.

id say around 290-300 to the wheel, but if you dont have 373s or a better gear your still gonna be missing out. gears and tune are the best upgrade na for our rides.

Going offroad is what's going to make it raspy. I would suggest getting resonators asap

That's a bold statement. With just a CAI, which doesn't net much gains going to an off-road setup might, possibly net 5-10whp. Depending on auto vs manual, I'd bet he puts down 275 or less.

But I agree, gears and a tune are the 2 best things for these cars.

Get an OR H pipe instead, gains off an X pipe are very minimal while sacrificing a lot of sound.

It's been proven by members on here that you gain nothing with a CAI on our sixxers. In fact, you might lose a hp or two due to the higher temp of air being sucked in from your engine bay.

However, increasing your exhaust flow and tuning it to 91 or 93 octane will give you some gain, but not a ton. If I had to guess maybe 10-20 hp? Where's oxford, he's good with this stuff.

So if the video is accurate, they achieved around 360hp at the crank with just a tune, cai and axle backs??

Seems suspect but if so I need to move to a city with 93 octane!!

Assuming the rough average of 12 to 15% drive train lose, the 292 HP(CAI, axle backs and 93 Tune) = 332 to 343 crank HP respectively.
At 315 WHP (with BBK long tubes and O/R X-pipe) = 360 to 370 crank HP respectively.
I believe!

I'm not close to a hp expert so I'm not disbelieving, but knowing the cai doesnt does hardly anything in our cars (if the test some members on here did was accurate) and axle backs alone dont increase much exhaust flow (assumption), that leaves the tune to make most of a 35 hp gain correct?

I'm hoping someone on here with a similar setup has dyno'ed their car and can weigh in.

That's a big gain!

2014 V6 HP Question

Dyno number are always relative, a stock run would've been nice to compare to.

That being said, the things that actually made a difference were the headers, mid pipe, and the tune.

That being said, nice gains anyways and I'm curious to see what he runs at the track.

Makes two of us. I have my eye on an x pipe but cant decide between long or short tube headers. Would like better highway speed passing power so Im guessing long tube?

Also, do you think the fact that the video guy deleted his cats make a big difference? I wont delete mine but just curious.

I sure want to dyno my pony as is, and after MPT 93 octane tune, I have just "tube" aFe filter& bassani axleback and can bark 2nd gear. 2.86:1 gear due to tires and wheel switch. I can powerslide really nice and figure I have 290 hp at the wheels.

People with shorty headers will say "get the short tube headers". People with long tubes will tell you, "get the long tube headers". I have long tube headers with a shorty catted x-pipe. Yes, they do 'rasp' when revving to 6,000 rpm in neutral. That doesn't happen in the 'real world' very often.
I must be the only one in the world that didn't lose any low end torque with my long tubes. I felt extra horsepower and torque on my first drive after i installed them, even before i had my tunes changed.

If you live where the do smog test, get the short tube headers and keep the factory catts
