I just posted this on another thread and is a good book to have around and make yourself familiar with your engine. I've had mine for a few years now.

Just intake/throttle body/headers + tune. It has always had a really rough idle. I still owe Jannetty another datalog. Maybe I can do a better job with this one.

Yeah it has to be the tune... Maybe you should give up on Ted and try someone better...

I gave him terrible datalogs for the first tweak. He's within 3% on LTFTs for everything but when the intake is heat soaked. I think high IAT is what makes it run rough. It really only does it when the car is hot. Once i get the air flowing it runs great.

Same book I used it was a very good read! I wish I would have done everything the exact way instead of being over confident.

That is how we come to understand things instead of just following instructions step by step. Too bad it's so expensive!

Don't know what stock goes for ... A 416 is like 5 to 7k .. Assembled with forged internals ... your gonna have give up your block as a core charge ... I imagine a 427 is more

I wouldn't go 42x anything unless it was with an ERL block. I'd stay 416 or any combo with a 4.0 stroke and not more than that. Thats just my .2 though.

418 is good as well? So as soon as I get my block I have to send mine back in? I'm still praying its only a blown head gasket though that would save me quite a penny.

They call it a core charge. Yes you have to ship your old blck back. I hope you only have a blown head gasket too.

What's a good CAI for our cars? Does it need a tune and will it void my oh so precious warranty?

Yeah, me either. The search function sucks on this board. I typed in Camaro in the search box and didn't come up with a single CAI thread.
