I have a 2.4 that has been dyno'd stock, with exhaust change, with intake change, and then stage I, stage II, and stage III supercharged.  If you search you should be able to find them all on here.  At stage I I also changed out the header, hi-flow cat and Solo exhaust.  I never did re-dyno after I had the engine re-built with carillo rods, wisco ceramic coated pistons, and supertech valves and springs.  The dyno I had used burned down along with the shop it was in.

I assumed only my mother thought this  :tool:

HAHAHA!!!!!  You pulled me down the vortex!!!! LOL.....It happens. 

I find the conversations on topics like this to be super stimulating, and an excellent way for people to learn stuff.

I bet that comparative information was very helpful for you going forward!

Yeah..wh3n I owned m6 supercharged probe gt I'd get dyno and 1/4 mile times after mods to compare for people later.  It's also fun to see what your changes have done.  I attempted to dyno the sky after the new clutch but they cancelled my appointment before hand.  I was just surprised that no one had any definitive numbers (even solo who makes the downpipe).
I guess I underestimated just how small a group the Kappa would have bc of the low production..

That's a good idea, hadn't thought of that. Personally, I'm more concerned with reliability, so some things I've swapped without documenting how much the gains were. That's why my Camaro is still so lightly modified, I'm upgrading other components for reliability first. (Clutch is up next.)

And sorry for the earlier mess. I think that was a typical internet misunderstanding. By talking about not seeing flywheel power thewn jumping to talk of clutch slippage, it led to an implication that I don't think you intended and we all latched onto.

Don't be sorry it's my fault.  I had a brain fart.  Every time I talk about the clutch my left leg screams at me lol....I will say though....once you get the off on nature of the spec stage 3 lightweight flywheel combo it's still streetable.  Just a lot of work in stop and go.  I think it's more to do with the engine revving so much faster than anything in stop and go traffic that makes it suck...

I'm about to drop in a Mcleod RXT twin disc...honestly I'm hoping more a more on/off and heavy clutch than the stock Camaro garbage. The old '87 4.9 F-150 I learned to drive stick in had a wickedly heavy clutch, but it could be driven smoothly more easily than this modern "light" clutches.

GOD!!!!!!! This weather is killing me!!!!!! UGH!!!!!  I haven't driven my car since early December!!!! I also have a friggen "to do" list when it heats up some!  I have to redo the new hardtop's window seals to make sure the damn thing doesn't leak, but I got all new 1inch by 1inch d-shape window weather stripping, and I think I know how to install it so it fits and seals correctly!!!!  I need two 70 degree days in a row just to do that!!!

Then I realize when I went out to start the car two weeks ago that the idiot garage I took the car to to have the SOLO DP installed did not install the long o2 bung after the cat like they were told.  Luckily they fessed up to that, and found the bung there, and will replace it when the weather is ok for me to drive the car. 

I also realized I haven't even gotten a chance to drive the damned Saturn since I got the downpipe installed!!! Killing me!!!
