700 horsepower: who's got it, and how did you do it?

Re: my 05 Yellow, I'm having my speed guy put in an LSA with a beefed up drive shaft, new trani, new fuel pump. It will also have the E-brock 2300 supercharging the LSA. Will it crank 700? I'll know in a few days.

Wow. That should be fun. Hope you're also doing some upgrades to the cooling system to keep all those ponies cool.

My 2004 5.3 tuned by Jeremy has MORE power than I can really use.

What you are doing is massaging your ego, NOT a bad thing !

EDDIE, (rosebud) added a super charger to his 06 and went OVER 700.

What is being done on the exhaust side of the truck? Should be a nice ride when it is done.

Cool! Keep us updated. I run an '06 supercharged, and sure is fun to drive.

I have Magniflow pipes, can't remember the exact model number, but they were what my speed guy
knew they had to be.

Put in a double radiator, two fans, each bigger than original. Absolutely no overheating, even in the high 90s.
Although the E-brock has its own cooling system, the blanket effect of it sitting on the engine is why we
turned to beefing the radiator system

I'd be interested to hear...
...how much this "700 horsepower" is going to cost you, when all is said and done!?!?

Thanks Kit
Just for the record, mine is no where near 700 HP
Closer to 550. But it handles the power really well. you can see when second gear pops lots of smoke (lots of torque
and revs at that point
You will have a blast, and way more permagrin than before.
It is very hard not to step on it and feel the power
Is yours manual or auto?

Hellvis dyno'ed 589 RWHP with aftermarket cam, heads, injectors, Magnacharger 122HH, headers, 3" exhaust, tune. Assuming a 20% power loss, that would equate to 706.8 Flywheel HP.

Very Nice Doug.

Thanks for sharing. Do you drive it daily?

That is one thing I really like about the supercharger, is very streetable.

Elwood has the LSA with Callies crank and rods, West Coast heads and Magnusson heartbeat s/c. The last adjustments brought the hp up to 850 flywheel. He is a daily driver. I use a 3" Magnaflow exhaust system from the Kooks headers. Bob

What is an Elwood? And what is an LSA?

Through use of HP tuning programs; it was taught to recognize different values. The computer is limited in the amount of new input it can accept and the amount of adjustments that can be made. Kyle at J&R Performance in Phoenix is the wizard of electronics and computers.

Sorry, Elwood is what I call my 06 Pacific Blue SSr. All of us blue owners are "Blues Brothers", and I thought Elwood would be a good name. Your question about LSA is the letters are an identifier of a specific version of the LS3 production of GM motors. It can be found in the supercharged Cadillacs and ZL1 Camaros. When properly built, it can be rated for 1450 hp as mine is. It is also the basis for the supercharged Corvettes.

My 05 is auto, which I'm fine with as my size 14s get in each other's way down there, when
there's more than one foot doing anything.

about $20 G, I'd say. Went with new transmission and new, larger fuel pump. Cheaper, I thought, than a new car, and it is
the last car I'll ever own. So, yeah, how do you put a price on permagrin?
