Easiet way to add Horsepower...
 
What is the easiest way to add horsepower????:iq: ..Without the engine or tranny swap.

fco_gonzo 01-09-2008 07:57 PM

the easiest would be a prorammer. The best option would a cam but you asked for the easiest.

like gonzo said, easiest way is programmer, but doesn't do as much without an intake & exhaust.

I voted program.

Easiest is the programmer or custom pcm tune. You'll get more bang for the buck with a cam swap, but it involves a little more.

We talking the L31 vortec motors in the obs tahoes or a general question? I'd vote custom pcm tune if it were on the list, otherwise the cam is a good idea but you'll need some more mods to take full advantage of the new power. The L31 is a slippery slope, the more you want the more you need to save to do all the mods at once which is why I bought the denali.

:crazy: a slippery slope? lay off the snow:druge: for a minute were talking about Tahoes here. Not denalis or yukons, were talkin tahoe...Not denalis or yukons..were talking tahoes.

now then. what do you mean you gotta save more and do them all at once? man you can do it piece by piece if you want. stick to the denali forum bra:cowb:

Play nice guys.
I think what Boost is getting at is that you can do it piece by piece, but you won't realize the full potential of a single part unless it works in harmony with others. For ex; a high lift cam won't make a big improvement if the intake system (manifold, tb, air filter, etc) doesn't have the ability to allow the cam to ingest the volume of air it is capable of. A high rpm cam profile will almost always need a higher stall converter. Opening the exhaust will help an aftermarket intake even more. Any intake and exhuast mod can benefit more if parameters in the pcm are changed to take advantage of the increased airflow. Sometimes it's better to add a couple parts at the same time rather than one by one.
