I believe you're referring to OrangeChevy's comment "only change is a cam."
He was saying that his only new mod (added to his previous setup) is a cam. He has a nicely setup Camaro for drag racing (bolt on's, cai, cam, drag wheels, some weight reduction, and nos). But he didn't use the spray on the cam "only" run.

I think I hit close to the bottom of the top 10 in bone stock today. Nothing has been done to my car. This was the 2nd time I've been to the track since I got the car. Today was cold and track was slick for everyone. I made 8 runs, with #1 being worst, 13.921@106.71. Best being run #7, 13.293@108.09. Here's that slip, car # 4545

I do but I can't post it. I took a picture of it but the battery died and I can't find the charger. I posted a slip and video of another run where I went 12.97 in another thread before my battery went dead.

After well over fifty 1/8 passes at the local track (Northstar - Sanger, TX) I decided to spend a Friday night at the nearest 1/4 track (Dallas Raceway, Crandall, TX) and see what my Baby would run. Boy did she run, and her best run is detailed below. Looks like I made the Top Ten on the "Bolt-Ons without Internal Engine Modification" list! Woohoo!

Car/Engine: 2SS/RS w/L99
Tires used on the pass: Stock Pirelli ZR20 Summer Tires
Performance Mods (if any): ADM Performance CAI (race version), ADM Performance 160 Thermostat, American Racing 1 7/8" Long Tube Headers, MagnaFlow Catback Exhaust with X-Pipe muffler, ADM Performance High Output Dyno Tune
Category submitted for: Bolt-Ons without Internal Engine Modification
60'............. 1.996
330'........... 5.455
660'........... 8.292
660’ mph... 87.40
1000'.......... 10.707
1320'.......... 12.742
1320’ mph…. 108.77
Name of the track: Dallas Raceway
Date of pass: 10/16/2009
Weather conditions: (include Density Altitude, if known): 59 Degrees, 72% Humidity, Density Altitude: 424 feet, Relative Density: 98.77 %

NOTE: Although you may know me as Number_9, I am number 111 (right lane) on the time slip below (also, it was test/tune night so I was racing the clock and not the guy in the left lane.)

Wasn't the greatest run but, I'm new to launching a stick car. I can't wait to start getting under 2 sec 60's.

Also are you guys getting out of 3rd gear? I tried to shift a little early on another pass to get into 4th and came up with the same trap speed, maybe improved 60 foot times will send me into 4th gear.

Yes, i was finishing in 4th gear...kinda' feels like you can ride out 3rd, but your trap speed is faster if yous shift to 4th...it's pretty close to redline then.

BTW. i now know what "wheel hop" is...OMG
