Alright, C'mon, cough it up. Time for some videos...

At least the engine running...

We need fresh drool material.

Now we get to see how tough the Camaro drivetrain really is...

It has been raining here so I got my wheels mounted and put on the Heritage Grille today. If it is decent outside and not raining tomorrow I will try to get some video of it running, but I WARN you I am no professional at video so I will do my best. I have had it out for 1 day since it is back and cant wait to see what a difference drag radials make because stock tires is like driving on ice, but it sure is fun. My new axles will be here in a week or two so we will see if the stock make it that long. HaHA

I have the option to run whatever size I want but will start at 75 and work the engine up from there. Wanting to treat engine nicely and do everything right to make sure there are no issues but I love this engine and cant wait to hit the nitrous.

I finally got to check this thing out yesterday at the Etown meet and greet, and it is even more impressive in person! jrpxxii has done one hell of a job on this car, especially when you consider he isn't a vendor building a promo vehicle. Its just his toy! I can't wait to see what this thing does at the track and on the dyno.

Thanks Chase, I really enjoyed meeting everyone and look forward to getting to know everyone better thru more meetings. Yes Andy I do have dyno sheets and will post them up as soon as I can get them scanned to transfer on my computer. I will post the dyno run of when it got there and then the new dyno after the new build. Since it was all tuned in TX it was setup rich expecting to lean out once it got to KY, so I am going to have it tuned and dynoed again here at home as I will using the nitrous very soon as I am finally getting some miles on my new engine and think I will be able to pull some even better numbers here at home on the dyno.

I really need to find someone here in KY or TN to be the shop that does my new tuning and dyno but would like someone very experienced and knows what they are doing with a build of this nature. I have posted in the tuning section but no one has stepped up to take on my car. Any suggestions would be great but need the shop to be within reasonable driving distance as this car is developing all the time and I will need tunes and dyno for these changes as they come.

Dynospeed in memphis specializes in Mustangs, but they have built hundreds of cars with similar power to your camaro. Might give them a call.

ok first of all wow.. and ya you prolly need a tune my uncle has a zo6 vette with 488rwhp and he moved from denver CO down to dallas TX and the altitude change made his car run like crap... but as soon as he got it tuned it was back to normal if not better!!!! and did i hear u mention that thats a dailyDriver??? are you kidding me?? is that even safe?
