What? The stock engine has 165fwkw, there's more drivetrain loss than that.

I dare say he may have been talking about rwhp, in which case, I would agree with him.

I have the cooler (from the hybrid group buy), but haven't installed it or gotten the piping done.

If you could take some pics when it comes time to re-install yours of mounting places, and where the piping actually goes, that would be much appreciated. Might give me an idea how to go about mine.

Cheers

The red book is wrong on this occassion.
The stockers were 165 & the XR8's 170.

When I find my owners manual (god knows where it is) I will scan the page and post it.

With the standard maf, tb & intake manifold, I think you would be lucky to gain another 10fwkW, no matter what else is done to it. Though those mods will give you a torque increase (plus make it sound a s**t better) through the low and mid rev range until it starts to get strangle by what I talked about before.
