    HPF use Harrop more than DF these days but depends how long ago it was fitted. Any branding on the tips?

    Don't get hung up on power figures, loads of shops here supposedly make 450-500rwhp on a cammed LS3 yet they're the slowest at the strip. Dyno figures can be fudged to read just about anything you want. But if you want it angry sounding, you'll probably need a larger cam...not everyone's cup of tea in a manual, especially if you do a lot of stop/start driving. The car may not have been built for the same purpose you want it for

    Yeah it's a pretty small cam in a head and cammed LS3. Would have good street manners and make loads of torque though.

    Ok thanks

    I just want more power higher up
    Didnt feel like heaps of torque

    Im really after a ve in good condition that already has head and cam work
    Just doesnt fee like it has 400kw

    So id need new cam and tune and maybe replace headers if it hasnt been done?
