I had a guy call in sick this weekend so I stayed here all night to get the car done for you.

It is 3:26am and your car runs. She sounds great with that LG cam.

Bring your stock intake since the roto-fab one doesn't fit with the tvs

There are several camaros with the rotofab and tvs setup, perhaps you guys can find out what it takes to make it work. You will need to retune if you change the intake box later. Your car is going to kick aSS. Bring it to the meeting this Friday!

Are you going with a 160 thermostat? What about plugs? Post some videos of the car camming when you get a chance.

Rotofab makes a specific kit for the maggie. Im guessing you dont have the one molded for this.

The $99 for this kit is well worth it and much cheaper than a retune. I suggest that you order one prior to your tune.

The thermostat controls when your coolant is flowing into the engine. It blocks the coolant from the engine until it reaches a certain temperature, then it opens up to let coolant in. This lets your engine warm up faster and keeps your engine running at the temperature you want. Same as a house thermostat. I run a 160deg in mine. Alot of guys debate rather to run a colder one or not. Ive always ran them in my cars with no problems and my tuner recommended it so i put one in. Theres a few debate threads about them on the forum

Yes, what he said. My tuner recommended the 16o so I went with it. The difference is running 190 on the freeway to 178 if I remember correctly. It will help keep your car cooler in traffic. Ask your tuner and especially your engine builder for advise on this one.

Thanks, I think all SS Camaros should come with them like that from the factory rather than the 1969 307 looking bowtie.

Well the s/c package i ordered didnt come with the out of the box tuner so I'm getting it towed over to newtech for a tune. Also need to drop off the rotofab upgrade intake kit and that will be here tomorrow. Providing everything goes as planned should be able to pick up the car wednesday night.

Also ordered the rear cradle bushings set (street version) from BMR, those should be here wednesday.

I have been looking at those, thinking of going with the next level of stiffness. I would love to get the pfadts, just too pricey. Who's installing them for you? I'm wondering if my exhaust will come apart easily so I don't need to cut it up. BTW, you will need those for the auto-x event in two weeks. Stay tuned while I get more info, it's a two day event in Marina just south down 1 for you. I'm shooting for the Sunday with a prayer for both days.
