Sweet. Let us know how it goes. I pass Circle D everyday on the way to and from work. I see them moving their Silver Camaro around outside sometimes.

Ran my car this past weekend at the Texas Camaro Nationals. I'm a big amateur and it took some time getting used to the torque converter. I had a hard time keeping the tires from spinning, but my best 1/4 mile run was 12.88, which I was really happy with. I think I had the 2nd fastest qualifying time, but got beat by a cammed car. I had him off the line, but he caught me half way through and passed. It was a blast and I'm definitely hooked. Can't wait to get back out there. Here's a sweet burnout picture rolnslo took.

The new shoes are on, and they look great! These are the new Savini SV21c, and I was the first Camaro in the country to get them. Nick at BFXAuto even went to Savini to get pics of them making my wheels. Here's my thread with all the info.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=110896

Savini also created a thread about my wheels.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118002

BFXAuto is going to use my car in a photo shoot for their site, so I'll post those pics up later. Here are some initial shots i took.

At the same time my wheels were being shipped ARD was busy working on making this car a beast. Here's everything they put in last week.

Whipple Supercharger
Comp VVT Cam - Duration: 224/236 - Lift: 500/500 - LSA: 116
Hendrix Engineering 1400HP Axles
BMR Toe Rods
BMR Trailing Arms
BMR Sub Frame Connectors
BMR Driveshaft Tunnel Brace
BMR Driveshaft Safety Loop

The initial dyno made 576rwhp and 497lbs of torque on the stock pulley. I'm going back to see where the boost ended up with the cam and order a smaller pulley to bring it back up. Here's the thread with all the details.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=117831

Here's the initial dyno and some pics.

Looking good Russ. Love the new wheels. They look great on your car. Can't wait to see what kind of numbers you come back with from the track since your new mods either.

Keep up the good work!

Your car looked damn good with the powdercoated stock wheels and the Savini's make it look even better.

Installed an MPD1 spoiler tonight Pete at Showstoppers painted for me. It's the perfect final touch on the exterior of the car. I'll post up some pics as soon as I can.

Had a blast this past weekend. Nick at BFXAuto wanted to use my Savinis for his website, so we arranged a photoshoot. Here are some of the pics he used, and a bunch that he didn't.

ADM boost gauge was installed today, and ARD ported the throttle body. We ran a dyno and the Whipple made 7.5lbs max boost. We're going to order a new pulley tomorrow to put it right around 10lbs.

Went in to pulley up today.

Owen was going to order the 3.65" pulley, but Whipple told us the 3.75" would get us to 10psi. He went with their suggestion and installed it today. We actually didn't get to 10psi...ended up at a peak of 9.3. I'm actually fine with that, because I really just wanted to get over 600. Here are the final numbers.

606.25 RWHP
536.16 TQ

It ended up the perfect size pulley because we were about to run out of fuel with the stock pump anyway. I think if we go for more I'll need a dual pump (and some forged internals).

This thing is a beast!
