    VE SSV 9.5
    I have got my SSV (MY9.5 L76 eninge) booked in to D&T to have Full 2.5" Stainless Exhaust, 1 3/4 Extractors, Highflow Cats, OTRCAI and a Mafless dyno tune on the 2/2/10. They are also removing the AFM when they do the tune. i was just wondering what RWKW i can expect when they dyno it?

    Also what price would i be looking at to get Stage 2 Shift Kit, a 3k Stall Converter and eaither 3.45 or 3.7 Deff Gears

    At a rough guess, around 270-300rwkw??

    3.7s are around $1400-$1500.

    The 3.45s can be had for as little as $500 on eBay and LS1/JC forums.

    That's very optimistic, particularly on an auto. Stock it will be pushing around the 200-210rwkw mark ... Full exhaust, OTR, maffles tune may get you 40-50 ish.

    You won't get anywhere near 300 without a decent cam or forced induction ... even that would be a stretch with an auto.

    My brother had his VE Calais tuned by D&T with the same modifications proposed by you with the 3.7:1 gears and he made 267RWKW with about 500kms on the clock (ie. brand new car). When they tuned his car the "disconnected" the AFM rather than "remove" it because it is a fairly expensive excercise given that the heads need to come off the car and remove/ replace some parts to do this and it is unnessesary unless you are putting in a decent cam.

    As far as 300RWKW are concerned, my VE SSV ute made 308RWKW with about 1000kms on the clock. I have the same mods other than a set of 3" pipes, a 2800rpm converter, a VCM Suite stage 7 cam, lifters, etc and because of the cam, all the AFM gear physically removed.

    We had a race on a private road and although I beat him convincingly, there wasnt that much in it. Having said that I had ony just got the car back and just planted my right foot in "D" with traction control on.

    Good luck with the mods and I hope you acheive an acceptable power level that you are happy wth.
