Thats awesome!

So the original harness/computer hooks right up, and just needs to be tuned?

Are you building the internals for forced induction?

I can't wait to see performance numbers.

Very nice Camaro1.
It's nice to see someone go their own way instead of going with Hennessey or Tom Henry. (Not that they are bad companies, they are very good companies, just like to see someone go "outside" the box!!)
By the way, who did the install? Keep us posted please!

More likely going for the 10's. Tuned out this thing is going to be a beast. Will the stock drivetrain handle this much power?
