I want to get some cams for my VR, I dont know if I should get 256 or 268's. If I get the 268's I would have to stay all motor. So what is the most HP that anyone has go on their NA VR6???? Please help. Can't decide whether I want to stay all motor or got turbo, SC... Can you guys help me out??

Re: Most HP on a NA VR6 engine (djthreat619)

check out the 'place your bets' post on this page. it's the most i've ever seen even though it's still under question by many. hopefully this kids motor will answer those questions. this is at the wheels horse power. to get crank, divide by .85

0.87 is more accurate for a front wheel drive car. Less drivetrain loss than a RWD machine... Perhaps this is why e pull well relative to higher powered RWD cars on the highway (just not from the light!). Just lettin ya know

3.1 (straight bore-out), nicely tuned w/ EVERYTHING working properly (tons harder than it sounds) will put down right around 225 whp. But, like I said, to get everything working properly is no joke. Such a set up requires stand-alone engine management to fully exploit a motor like that. Good bottom end work is a requirement as well. Needless to say, money and more money.
Will be a reality before I know it though

Hopefully I'll be getting mine broken in and dynoed within a month. Highest whp number with an actual dyno to back it up has been 218whp by Trac. I've "heard" higher, but never proven.
