Here is a video of the first dyno run pre delivery, wasn't the best weather conditions, high 80s and humid, but still did pretty good.

As usual, late to the game. But the car is one of the best looking/built Camaros I have ever seen. Is it still for sale?

Wow. At a loss for words. Being Ex-Full Time Military, Current ADSW and Contractor for the USN, I can acknowledge your hardships and totally understand and appreciate your priorities. Just wow though.

Been directly involved in some of the most beautiful and "no budget" builds, I can safely and confidently say that this one is probably one of my favorites and best examples of how to do it right. No stone left unturned.

I wish you the best of luck with the sale. It will go fast I'm sure.

This Camaro is just one incredible machine.....

Ivan - I really appreciate your note. Thanks for the note of understanding as well as the high compliments on the Camaro. I wish everyone could see this thing in person and drive it, it's something else.

There is someone local that has expressed interest in buying, but we'll see how it pans out. Thanks again.

Nice bro! I assume you haven't gotten it back yet? Going to be real hard to sell it once you feel what 600+ RWHP feels like pushing your ass back in the seat!

Thanks guys... It really is something. I really wish I could take very one for a ride in this thing, furthermore, let people drive it. It's amazing. So hard to explain in a ways. The HP torque balance is really something. The idle with the cams really just take you back to how these beasts all started. The suspension is not overly harsh, but very precise. And again, the MGW shifter, small mod in the whole scheme of things, but I can say enough how much I like the feel of it. You can't go wrong with swapping out to MGW.

Again, I have to say, AltAuto/SLP job well done.

I appreciate everyone's compliments. Local folks that will be at Camaro Nationals this weekend, come say hi!

Tribute is on Ebay. Unfortunately I have to try to sell the car as previously discussed. We'll see if ebay is a successful route. So far there have been a small handful of bids, but we'll see if it picks up.
