Hey yo what's up? I have an 06 m6...i love the performance of this machine straight out of the dealership dont get me wrong. just looking to put down a real 400 ponies to the ground if not a little more with modifications that won't put any more dents in my wallet. can anyone tell me any tricks that would help me out. i've heard from a few people that i should be putting down somewhere between 360 and 390 hp bone stock...is this right or close or whatever? i plan on ordering the k&n CAI but have no idea what else to pick up. i don't really want to mess with the exhaust right now. i know there has to be some other less expensive ways to get power. please help me out so i can be one of the very few guys running around my parts in the 400 RWHP club!!! thanks a bunch.

mine Dynoe'd 347 stock, 330-360 is more like it...

As far as mods, 100 shot of Nitrous does wonders!

as far as in cost there really wont be much you can do to get 400 to the ground, u can try CAI like volant or lingenfelter. Dont get a K&N ive been hearing really bad things about it. Course if u want to go the hard core rout that does about the same as the CAI kits, it just dosn't look as nice. for 400 id replace the rockers, CAI, exhaust, 36lb injectors (w/ plugs to match)and custom programing, should put you there with about 400. Once you get a exhaust, do a cam then reprogram again. That should put you around 450. Im not to much of a NOS man myself. I like power when ever i want to touch the peddle and not have to go refill all the time other than gas that is:).

Thanks for the tips...I will take a look at lingenfelter's cai and most likely go with them or volant...after i looked at the K&N i researched and did find that there are quite a few people that have been having trouble...not necessarily with goats... well if anyone has any more information about what parts and accessories are pretty compatible with ls2 goats, let me know. thanks.

I'd be careful shooting too much NOS into the LS2 with a 10.9:1 compression ratio.

Hey GotYurGoat, we're practically neighbors. If you see an '05 phantom black runnin' down 435 by the track (I work in KCK), pull me over and we'll go have a brew. My license plate is "22FAST".:cheers

Its boost you should be careful with on the high compression.


N20 LOVES high compression.

just gotta keep it fed with fuel.

I tore a rod in my motor because the nitrous fired while at idle. The kit (with all the safety equipment) probably costed me $1700. Getting a rebuilt engine costed $3500. It's your money...

It's just not the best one that's available, imo ...sort of like the B&M shifter when compared to what else is out there.
The Lingenfelter high performance Pontiac GTO air intake looks just like my K&N, except the K&N doesn’t have that rubber bellows to cause unwanted air turbulence.:rolleyes:
Like you said, it's your opinion.;)

I don't understand, my K&N works great. Someone is just blowin smoke up yer a$$.
I agree, I've seen the K&N next to the Lingenfelter and the K&N blows it away, plus, it's cheaper..... oh sh*t, I can already feel the flames. I'll stand beside the K&N everytime when it comes to the 05-06 GTO's.....
