Just a ballpark guess, I'm more interested in the power difference people with L36s can feel from stock.

My planned mods: 180 deg T-stat, intake, roller rockers. I want to do a camshaft, but that requires too many side additions to be within my budget.

I'm not sure. I was going to dyno/go to the track about a month ago but my tranny started slipping/not shifting at WOT. So Now I have to baby it till i get some $ for a built tranny.
