Why, yes. The chip and Remus.messenger13 said:The only upgrade I know that would add appreciable horsepower or torque to my '02 is to drop an '05 motor in it. Do you know something I don't know?
Howdy Christian,chris1951 said:My question was only about getting the maximum power available on the machine without any kind of "heretical" modifications or upgrades. My LT is an april '04 model and I am wondering if it is factory limited to 100HP (due to the french law in this matter). In this case, is it easy to turn up to the maximum available power?
You're in FRANCE! D'oh!!chris1951 said:This qestion to those having to face the 100HP power restriction.
I seriously doubt that you would be able to pull away from, much less smoke an 05. The 05 has roughly 15 more hp which is a lot. My first LT an 02 ran great, but once you passed 6500rpm you could feel the engine starting to ease off. I always shifted at around this rpm because of this. The 05 LT is totally different. It pulls like a freight train all the way to red line. I have raced my buddy on his 02 GL1800 with my previous 02 LT and my current 05. With the 02 LT he would steadily pull away from me a little bit all the way to triple digits. My 05 LT is just the opposite as I can steadily pull from away from him by about the same amount as he once pulled me.DakotaDude said:Ditto to Grif's comment. The Rhinewest chip will give a legitimate 9-10 lb/ft of torque. The chip gives about 95lb/ft in the pre '05 LT's which is considerably more torque than the '05 produces. I would like to run against an '05 with my chip-equipped '00 LT...I have no doubt I would smoke the '05.

I am debating on an exhaust but not a Remus. Looking at the Remus I cannot see how in any way it could make any real gains in power beyond removing the restrictive cat conv. I an seriously considering a RB Racing exhaust. The said even they make no claims for above stock power, maybe 1-2 HP. They did say that customers report about a 10% increase in fuel milage and better response and roll on. They sell a recalibrated Bosch fuel pressure regulator and a high flow fuel rail--no injectors at this time for the LT, probably because they do not have a ram-air system available for the LT. You can visit them at rbracing-rsr.com.
Look at the build on the header pipes compared to the Remus. There system is a 4-2-1 with long head pipes. I am ready to commit--anybody know why I should not buy from these guys?
