    Now that the Stock cold air intake is out of the way, we can access the thermostat. Below is a photo of the stock thermostat.

    Now we will be adding the Livernois Motorsports EvenFlo Thermostat. With one of these high performance Livernois Motorsports & Engineering thermostats, you can dramatically reduce the operating temperatures in your performance engine. Using our line of EvenFlo 160° low temperature thermostats for late model performance engines, you can dramatically reduce the operating temperatures in your performance engine. This will allow for the engine to naturally make more power, ensure consistent performance, and increase coolant flow to help extend engine component longevity.

    Up next is one of our 3 Bar MAP sensors which goes on top of the intake manifold. This 3 Bar provides a larger boost range to work with for tuning while providing more power and excellent drive ability.

    Up next is the Livernois Motorsports Windstorm Cold Air Intake. The stock one is removed and placed out of the way.

    More flow equals more power and our Livernois Motorsports Windstorm series intake system gives you the best of both worlds! The Windstorm intake system features a dry and washable high performance filter, a new large, one-piece, rotationally-molded air box and totally redesigned air intake tube. These new one-piece air boxes feature an exclusive air filter which, when combined with the CAD-designed intake tube, provides maximum horsepower, torque, and MPG.

    V8, V9, V10

    Or maybe I was thinking there would be a larger increase over stock.

    So did I. My math gets about 420hp and 415lb/ft at the crank after the mods using the baseline to calculate drivetrain loss.

    If I can still run 12s I really don't care but it will be a while before I can get to the track.

    After a search of other dyno vids with the same or very similar mods, the numbers are typically 360-380+hp with matching tq numbers.

    Edit: My mistake, I wasn't noticing the lack of downpipes and I was comparing to others with them.

    I can vouch for the DYNO results. Although this isn't my SHO I went from 256 At Wheel HP to 322 AWHP so mine was close. I forget that torque was but somewhere close to 400. LMS provides excellent service not only before but during and after the sale and was always available for post tune questions and input for product improvement.

    The peak gains aren't what impress me, the gains from 2500-4000 rpm's are what makes it seem like a raped ape from stock to tuned. Torque numbers are almost doubled thru that range.

    Love the dyno results.. This is the exact tune in my 2016 non pp.. Just wondering if there is a difference with a PP OR NON
    on the dyno? Also with DP'S it should add 20hp to the wheels? Thanks

    No difference in power between non-pp and pp...

    Non-pp tuned is actually faster in the 0-60.
