LS2 vs M50T vs Most of an S52T

Postby Yoshi » Fri Jan 31, 2014 9:47 pm

First up are my old motors. Green is my M50 turbo. 2.5 liter with an HX35 on it running something like 16 or so psi. The purple is the S52 3.2 liter vanos motor with the GTX35 and also 15 or 16psi. Didn't get a clean run since the coils broke up. I never dynoed after I fixed it. Should be reasonably over 500.

Now is my LS2 6 liter with no real work done to it. It has an intake and some headers into a 4 inch straight exhaust. 375whp and 380wtq but I'm in love with the curve.

I have one but why post it? It's just the car going vroooom... that's it. I never got the point of those vids. It's also on a box dyno or whatever so the wheels are bolted to the dyno. None of that squat lookin stuff.
