you're not gonna find any real horse power in a 3.8. if that's what you're looking for. i thought the SS montes can with 5.0 engines. easy swap for a v8.

I had a stock 2001 monte SS. 3.8L eng code K. Manufacturer advertised 205 HP from the factory. I changed the air intake sys with a K&N filter charger and changed the exhaust sys to a flowmater sys with 2 3/4" pipes + high flow cat and mufflers. I dyno ed the car and had 255 HP at the wheels. spent less than $500 bucks for the whole 9 yards

No, I'm pretty you don't have 255whp from an exhaust and a little filter insert lol, if you had a CAI, high flow downpipe, resonator delete then I can see at least 205/215whp.
