VD indicates between 315 and 330, depending. Runs good... I left a 10 Camaro SS from a roll and was still walking away at 130 (short trip to Mexico ), so the catted Cobb DP is ok for now. Circumstances in the marketplace give little choice... catted with a neckdown, or catless without. Don't want catless again so I live with it as-is.

Had a tuning friend who had same car but hatch, same setup, but OEM CBE, and he was always just short of my "numbers." Maybe it does make a difference. But that difference, if it exists at this level, cannot be much.

That said, as far as I know, there's no tuning involved with any CBE. You either get more or you don't. Not a subject for this thread.
