Reason I have an automatic long block is that it was the only engine in the junkyard and mine was blowing heavy smoke. It is well documented that power drops off after 5.5k rpm with an automatic. I read about this, but almost 40rwtq is crazy.
I primarily wanted to get data to see the gains when I install a manual intake cam and adjustable cam gear. The tune was still a little rich up top. Running Braineacks timing map included on the DIYPNP.
Even though I am in different gears I did the 3rd gear pulls on one stretch of road and the 4th gear pulls on a different road. Either way data was good.
I also raced my friends LS1 Camaro and 1st and 2nd gear I would stay ahead a bit, but once in 3rd he would come around hard. I am hoping the cam helps. More boost after tuning the cam and maybe a little ethanol.

T3 Chinacharger, boost controlled by wastegate 10psi
3" exhaust to knockoff Magnaflow, sounds like a Subie
CX Racing Intercooler
2" intercooler piping
Is my torque curve any better than comparable manual 1.6? Do I got the torques? Will the cam swap make more power up top?
