Solstice GXP dyno

I haven't posted here for a long time, and this dyno is kinda old news, but I thought I'd share anyways:

EFR6758 dyno results 100 octane

As mentioned in the thread, towards the end of the tank of 100 octane, the clutch started to slip. The car is now back to 20-21 psi and running great. There's an internal debate to sell it in spring and put a down payment on some sort of corvette, but it's not set in stone yet.

Nice numbers! Definitely pushing that stock bottom end as far as it can go!

Very nice numbers!!!


I'm confused on the mis leading information on what power the LNF can take. I have heard and see dyno's of cars pushing just over 500whp no issues, but then read that 450whp is the limit.

Regardless impressive!!

Why the LE5 TB?

Yea, the absolute limits of a stock LNF are sort of up in the air. ZZP is really the only one that torture tests them. IIRC, prolonged abuse at 450+ will result in bent rods. At 500+, sleeves can go on a stock motor. ZZP makes a block girdle enhancement that takes care of the sleeves. From what I've seen, on a stock motor, keeping it below 400whp on pump gas is an ok place to be. My clutch started slipping on the 100 octane tune, so it wasn't gonna last at that power level without some work anyways.

The stock LNF throttle body has a nasty taper that reduces the diameter as it enters the intake. The 2008+ LE5 TB is straight through. For best results, the intake manifold should be port matched.

Also one thing no one took into account is most of the hp limits people have a fwd. he is rwd so there is more power lost to the additional drive train. I would be surprised if he's at 500bhp.




On the inside my car looks like a fighter jet.

Here's why it's been de-tuned to 21psi:

Clutch slippage

Seriously badass Solstice - 400+hp 4 bangers are just cool

How's it holding up at 21psi with the ZFR?

It's been fine. I recently detuned and demodded it because it'll be sold or traded whichever comes first. It's time to move on to a v8.

No reason that means you have to get rid of the car. A Solstice with an LSx swap is the shit.

I do agree with you on that one. However, the cost to get an LSX solstice up and running is not trivial though, meaning it's not cost effective. I'm not a fabricator, so I would have to at least rely on DIY swap kits and hopefully fill in the blanks as they arise. I would have to really, really love the car to choose that route over LSx swapping say an S13/S14, or even a third gen camaro, and that's strictly DIY. Full start to finish installs are ridiculous.
Performance Autowerks "Base" LS3 package This doesn't even have creature comforts like AC lol.
