The cars that come to mind in the 30k price range that don't depreciate and might actually go up in value are a couple that someone already mentioned and a few others like the G8 GXP, 86-87 Buick...

Locked converter though right? I think with a stock unlocked converter, stock tire diameter, 6200Rpm shift points, 3.91's and good weather would force a shift into 5th on a L99 car. With the racing...

By that info it looks like LSL intake and LXL exhaust if I'm correct. Those really aren't super aggressive lobes compared to some, especially the LXL. There are definitely cams out there made on...

So long as your engine internals are stock and you don't go past 1 year or drive mostly short distances I see no problem with that.

Mine did that as well. You need to bend the bracket a little. It does transfer that heat. In all honesty that CAI is one of the worst intakes for the 1/4 mile. The IAT's on it are just way too high....

After my CAI, LT headers, cat back and tune that shuts AFM off I got better MPG. Most have reported a gain or no change with a tune.

It's not just the total lift but the specs across the board. My old cam had over .650 total lift and I don't think it was even close.

The 12.2 time for the 5.0 is B.S. since it was done at the Cecil downhill track. I don't know where the SS ran a 12.5 but if that was done at Cecil it is also a BS time.

I agree with this.
Of course the SS model should get the LT1 with 7 speed manual or 8 speed auto. Auto should get the same engine as the manual, not a truck engine like the 2010-2015 cars. Buyers...
