there's this special thing called a dyno... we have a few of them here in orlando... i'm not sure which ones are still operational but we still have phone books for that. anyways this thing you go to it and you pay a guy to tune your motor and you'll probably see 10 horsepower through out the rev-range.
without tuning i expect you'll see about 5 maybe 6 horsepower.

my name isn't smartass.
and you think you could have learned the answer to your question by doing a search. this question has been asked about 20 or so times at least.
and on the internet caps is considered yelling. that's why we don't like it when you type with it on.

With cams not being tuned you can actually lose hp peak or all over the powerband, and hp gains depend on to much(mods, tuning, fuel delivery, air being ingested, etc.) to give you an accurate idea...Plus all motors react differently to mods, so really it also depends on how your car reacts to it...so really no way to tell you for sure... you might look into other cams besides crowers(although they have "supossedly" fix thier b-seris cams, they have had to many break on to many people, who had them properly installed, for me to suggest anyone to buy them)...

I didnt say you name was smart ass, I said thats what you are. And whos we, you got mice in your pockets. Your the only one that got your panties in a bunch over the "yelling" thing.

and TodaTeg...
Thanks for the info. Guess I will have to dyno to find out exactly, but all I was hoping for was a guesstamate on it.

gee... good thing nobody else came up with that thought... :rolleyes:
No shit a dyno will tell me how much it gave me. And the cam isnt even in my car yet. All I want is an idea of how much it could give me. gee...why didnt you get that... :rolleyes:

here is a guesstament and it is pretty accurate and you can not get much closer then this.... Depending on mods and tuning

From skunk2 stage 2's you can see between 5whp to 65whp, now again this depends on all mods and tunging...
