Just threw the car on Brian's dyno tonight to get a baseline before I do any mods that will affect power.

289 RWHP and 312 RWTQ

Who wants some?! :lol:

I'm pretty pleased as that is about what I expected if the car was healthy - and evidently it is. It's bone stock with 95K miles. For a '00 Camaro SS with an A4 trans, it's a solid number. I haven't even sea-foamed it or installed new plugs. Just threw the bitch on there as-is.

This is the first time I've ever dyno'd a completely bone stock (as far as power) 4th gen Camaro. All other cars I have ever owned always had mods before they ever saw a dyno. Wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to get a baseline and satisfy my curiosity. Now the mods can begin. :D

Yep, saw your thread and video. Couldn't hang for that entire song :ph34r: but saw the dyno pull.

Damn. My car's original LS1 must have been pretty strong for the mods. 145K miles with the free mods and full exhaust/lid and it dyno'd 342 rwhp, 353 rwtq. It's a 6spd, but still.

Never did get a baseline completely stock.

The relationship between a vehicle's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. The greater amounts of F=ma, the more likely a girl will state "F My A"

With full exhuast, airlid, free mods and tuning.........I would venture to say the Camaro would be in the 325 rwhp range on the stock converter.

Brian, thanks again for fitting me in on short notice. :cool:

Here's the video I shot. Not very dramatic or spectacular compared to modded cars, but it is what it is. The funny thing was, we didn't even cover our ears during the pull. It was that quiet. :blink:

I cant believe the numbers some of these high mileage cars produce. The last Z28 I dyno'd at my shop, on a Mustang Dyno was a '98 with only a Chokemaster and K&N drop in filter with 96k miles on it. It dyno'd 298/316 through an A4...
It seems these cars just get better with age...

Yep. I never dyno'd my wife's 2000 B4C but with 120K on the clock it ran very strong at the track. 13.25 was the best ET IIRC, and all it had was a lid and some free mods. They get stronger as they "loosen up" as long as they have been maintained properly.

My new toy is not a record setter by any means, but I feel that is a really solid baseline when you consider that as of last night I hadn't touched anything that would affect it's power output. I had deliberatley waited to see what numbers it would make in the condition it showed up in.

Today I Seafoamed it and installed a Blackwing airlid. Need to check (and probably change) the plugs. I am porting and polishing an OEM throttle body and have an LS6 intake manifold that I am clearancing for the coolant crossover pipes. When the TB and manifold are ready they'll be installed and I might dyno again as an experiment. Mulling over doing anything to the exhaust. A set of Kooks longtubes would be nice. ;) :D

Sounds good TWS.....I am always up for dyno testing and measuring actual gains. This dyno works excellent for that and should be over 300 rwhp to:)
