I can't believe you drive such a broke-*** POS. Have some dignity, man.

I can't believe hustler was the last one to post in my thread.

Decided to throw more toys at the ls6 and do at least one more track day before selling it. Don't feel like spinning it any higher to see if it keeps making power. Lost some torque down low, but don't think that will be a problem.

whats with the torque dip at around 4krpm?

you can probably feel it jump in power substantially as you approach 5000rpm.

Partly real. You can see a sudden jump (mostly up) around the same point on ls1 dynojet curves. Partly how the graph is displayed. Y-axis scale emphasizes drop, polynomial curve fitting to sampled points. I've seen it on a bunch of different cars on the same dyno. It's not a misfire or other mechanical issue.

I'm tempted to take it to a closed road in Mexico this weekend to see how it feels, but might just wait until the next track day.
