I really want to get my 328 up to 300hp, close to the performance that I'm used to, but I don't think I want to push this much boost, just for engine longevity sake. I'd probably use a tune that's a little less aggressive, adding 30-40hp, coupled with a full exhaust which gives around 20hp on its own. I think that'll get me really close to the desired 300hp and performance that I want.
Well for starters, you don't have 240hp, you have more like 270hp. This is dyno proven. Just a stage 1 tune will give you about 300hp at the crank. A full exhaust and stage 2 tune will net you more like 320-330hp.
