Agree on V-6 vs V-8. I have seen a couple Turbo v-6's put the smackdown on the V-8 SS at the dragstrip. Both are impressive cars, but less people are doing interesting things with the V-6. This 3.6 has a bit more technology than the ol V-8. So Lets not knock anyone for making the choice to do something different. Its what make us all car people. The fact that this sport/hobby brings us all together is whats important. Good job man! The car looks amazing..

congrats on COTW. awesome job on all the innovation for the ducts and intake. I really like the way it came out. Seems like a decently cheap mod as well compared to some other stuff out there. Good luck with your races!!! Hope it all works out for you.

OK, splitter is back on (no dams yet) and the EBC Bluestuff NDX pads are in... caliper temp strips added as well. I'm done for today!

It's hard to simulate ram air effect on the dyno. It'll probably be about the same as doing a dyno pull with the hood open vs closed.... about 4-5 HP.

Congrats on Camaro of the week! I like the brake ducts you did, I hope to do the same some day to help with brake fading.

Very cool. Im interested to see how all that extra downforce ala the front air dam and spoiler create.

Along with the coilovers, do you have any other suspension components such as rear end links, trailing arms, etc? Also, think you'll throw the vert strut bar up front?

This is a cool build - I would like to see it in person one day. Congrats on COTW

I think he's talking about the custom mid-mount kit on 3G's car. I know Sc did the custom piping (well most of it). You should check out his build thread.

I dont have the link handy, but his camaro5 name is gretchengotgrowl

Yea, I've been watching that and talking with Gretchen about his. Like I said, price/ value gets my dollars. Besides, Gretchen has T3s which are not the best for road course work I'm thinkin.

Thanks M8! I'm in West Palm. Find your way down to Homestead this weekend and, hopefully, I'll be running it.

How many times do I have to say it? It's "race" not "rice"!

Coilovers and aggressive alignment ATM. Solution "B" sway kit from Pedders is on the list and bushings after that. The car is still in development. One mod at a time so I may evaluate it properly.

I've done a bit of testing at Sebring for the aero and, corner speeds, even with the stock tires, was very good! As you know, Sebring is a fairly rough track and the Pedders COs did a great job! I never had any "moments" the whole day (albeit at my limited pace).

Pay no mind to the the rice-aphobes. Your car is a very smart build. I love the "race" on the back. It speaks to what your car is built for and the other mods back it up. Congrats on COTW!

I admire Beauwulf, I wish i had the time and money to be racing all the time =D

Beauwulf, do you have a link or thread that shows all of your suspension mods? I would like to take a look and see what your setup is like =p I was hoping for Pedders Xa coils and their swaybar kit soon. =D
Most people don't realize that the current V6 will spank many cars within its class. And on a road course or HDPE event the most powerful cars don't always win. It has to be a balance. As a V8 owner I am a big fan of the OP's car and props to him for actually run his car and not his mouth

Thank you (and everyone else) for the kind comments! I really can't wait to try it out! I'm first on the waiting list for the Chin Motorsports HPDE at Homestead this weekend.

When I do get it on the track, I will have plenty of video you guys!

GOOD LUCK........Keep the rubber side firmly planted on the track and drive the hell out of her and make us V6 guys proud.

Looking forward to the video.

Thanks
