If you get a tune that includes tuning for 92 octane you might get an additional 16 HP but if you are just talking about gains from the CAI and UDP and duals you might maybe 8-10tedness said:if i were to do everything the stage 1 v6 says in the sticky:
- true duals
- 3.73 & tlok
- cold air intake
- underdrive pulleys
what kind of hp gain am i looking at before a tune?
right now i'm making about 155rwhp, and the sad 190bhp.
Actually you can pick up 10HP on a chip if you tune to 92 octane and about 6+ with bolt ons. I gained 16hp on my dyno a couple of years ago with nothing more than bolt-ons and a fordchip.bluemustang said:your crazy to think your gonan gain 15-20 hp cause your honestly not
When I had true duals, headers, CAI, pulleys, chip I picked up a whopper 13 hp.
trust me you aint getting much wit just duals (thats prolly not even true Y to double pipe) and pulleys
RGR said:Most cars with a cam get right at 10 RWHP with a tune, but I have some
dyno data that shows 6 RWHP on a stock setup that was tuned. I ALWAYS
say wait on the tune until you make some big changes, Like a cam. Even porting
without a cam usually does not need a tune.
That setup you list might get you 10-15 RWHP tops, but I think 8-10.
Supposedly MM&FF said you can get to 200 RWHP with just boltons,
but that would be one of our people online somewhere or we would
have heard of it, I have been here since day 1 in V6 modding...
and no one has gotten 200 RWHP from Boltons, AFAIK. Not saying
it is impossible, just unheard of. If I had a factory ringer V6 I bet
I could do it, but it would take some tricks that are not streetable
or at least what is considered normal "bolt-on" procedure.
