Not bad for 91 octane and a conservative tune.
Stock z06 on this dyno made 447. Car has headers, intake and I tuned it.

how much did the dyno session cost?
I rented it for an hour so it was $75. Otherwise this place charges $25 to strap down the car and $5 a pull.
Dang, that's pretty cheap for a dyno.
Nice numbers! You gonna run it down the 1/4 mile and see what it will do, or will you do some track days in the future?
nice numbers man, I like that torque curve too. Got any more mods planned? And how is traction with the eagles?
That's amazing, my friend's wrx have a little more than 300WHP and it is incredibly fast, can't imagine how fast is yours.
I would invest in some R-compound tires before I would get a blower. Your gonna need them.
ďAs to the methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.Ē
Drag radials and wheels are on the list. Clutch first too. A blower would be atleast a year out.
1) The cylinder walls on the LS7 are very thin and do not hold up well to boost.
2) The z06 is already extremely light...you dont need the insane amount of torque a blower would give you.
3) A cam in a 7 liter engine will give you PLENTY of INSANE power at a fraction of the cost. You can make 600 RWHP if you get a cam and do some port work on the heads/intake manifold. Even after this, you are still half the price of the blower.
But then again, its your car . I was just giving my .02.
As for 1/4 mile times...my friend has a cammed 6.2L vette...it made 500 RWHP and he runs 11.1's at 129. 129 MPH trap is absolutely insane for the street .

That's awesome.... planning on doing an video clips? Vettes with headers/exhaust sound fantastic. You are going to love the cams when you do them. When my buddy camm'd his Viper, the difference was amazing.....
Blower is ~6k and will make 650-680rwhp all day reliably. Cam is $1500 and would make 530-550rwhp but have crappy idle and some driveability issues. Nothing wrong with boosted ls7s. They handle boost just fine. If your talking making 1000rwhp and running 15+psi then yes, but at 6-8psi they are fine and make great power. No matter what that is no time soon. For now I'm working on the exterior and just enjoy driving it.
FI is def the way to go. I got a 350Z and I plan on going Turbo/built engine next year when it's paid off. Cams just sound cool....... (well not as cool as a BOV vented to atmosphere)
