Welcome Jake and if you have any drone from your axle back you can do custom J pipe depending on what RPM the drone is at. DYI on the Forum.

Spent most of the day cleaning the Camaro in preparation for a show tomorrow. The forecast is iffy so I hope I miss the rain. This is after I installed the center caps I painted and a quick touch up polish with M205 in spots then a coat of black light glaze then a coat of Colonite 845. I also treated the top with 303 protectant. Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1406417060832.jpg

Well how did you do? I have never run down the drag strip. I did a couple of laps at Watkins Glen and that was fun. One of these days I will probably go to the drag strip just for kicks.

Yea that makes alot of sense, I had a 98 blazer 4.3 v6 with flowmasters which had a pile of drone but not sure how i feel about the camaro having too much... maybe i can find one at a meet n greet or something to check it out.

If you want to check out the emerald coast camaros in the florida sub forum we are actually having a meet n greet in thomasville on August 16.
Yea it is a small world, that's crazy! Also the meet n greet sounds like a great idea, i'll have to check and see what's on my calender.

What ratio are you going with again?

Cammy, those are pretty decent times. I wonder how much heavier the ZL1 wheels are than the stock 18's. When I switched my 18's out I did notice that my MPG's dropped a bit. And then at C5festIV friggin Racergirl was running 13's on stock 18's.

3.91s....after reading some threads about people who have LFX that put them in it may be a bad idea but I'll find out in a couple weeks when I hit the track.

I honestly don't know how that could be the case. unless they are just spinning at the line.

Nah, it's the smartest thing you've ever done in your life. I've got'em and this car is absolutely wild. I didn't really feel much difference during the break-in period, but the first time I put my foot down my hands were still shaking from the adrenalin rush 30mins later. It's not going to help you at all at the dragstrip, but the track should be fun.

Whoops. Haha, it's all good though. That setup is pretty much evenly matched with a 2.92 on our cars. 3.91 pulls all the way through the 330' but then you kinda just run out of gear. And it's right at that moment the the 2.92 gearing begins to hit it's stride. You'll trap in 4th gear. But, you will pull on a stock V8 all the way through that 330' mark. And that, my friend, feels good.
