Thanks SSE, (I'm knocking wood as I write this) That BEAST has given me 6 years of pleasure, dependability, a canvas to make it what it is today, and it's done that virtually trouble free! My buddy, a Philly cop, bought my first Tahoe, a 1997 and missed out when I sold my 2002 for this one, is begging me for this Hoe! He knows how I take care of & mod my cars, but this one I can see keeping for a long time! She's special

Thanks Tim, ya gotta maintain right! I emailed Centree today about getting the dash plaques Brother, I spent 42 years on the right coast, so the 2 years in Cali didn't jade me, I used to fly back for Eagles games too. But , at least I'm going back in the spring I will miss the beautiful weather 99% of the time, some of the people I've met, and surfing almost everyday, but like Arnold said, "I'll be back".

Gettin' ready for the big move? I hope all goes well for you John....just something about being home!! I know home can be anywhere one rests their head, but everyone needs a permanent resting place!....

Please be safe....

I'm now graced with the presence of the current Car Of The Week owner, (there's a lot of COTW's in this crowd ) Kurt, my brother, let me congratulate you again for FINALLY getting the recognition of owning one of the best Camaros in the country! But we already knew that, if this was Owners Of The Week, you would've been #1 in line, it's been my pleasure calling the Kellers friends.

That Beast of Hoe can trailer the ZLX, but I'm leaving that in the hands of professionals. I wish I could just sit in her on the way back & sleep in that enclosed trailer! But with the dogs we're driving the Tahoe back, I wish it was more of a sightseeing trek or even drive the ZLX back since it just broke 3000 miles (and had 3 oil changes, so far ) We're fortunate to have kept our properties back there in South Jersey, so it was basically a 2 year hiatus and learning experience. I only have one regret, that one person won't be there when I get back, the person that mattered the most. But thanks to you, and another brother, I'm getting better with it, so hopefully it's a relatively smooth transition. I actually think Timmy gave me a couple signs today. My main concern are the dogs, my oldest is 12, a Weimaraner, so I want the trip as stress free as possible for him.


As you know the ZLX is at Cunningham MotorSports getting worked for the final time. The last piece of the puzzle right now for the engine is an 8 rib pulley conversion, so we're going the Innovators West kit.

The 6 rib at my power level is marginal at best. I'm making everything else as bullet-proof as possible, there's no point in not completing this, or I'll be shredding & popping belts more times than I care too.
I talked with Ryne about this and even though he has a great relationship with another shop back there, and we thought maybe let them do it, I couldn't, this is a CMS built car & I'm damn proud to point that out! From the beginning I told Ryne I want this to be his car and never gave him a deadline, I don't rush people that are masters of their trade, and he's never let me down. But this one has to be done by next Thursday at the latest, then I still have to pick up 80 miles away, because the car carrier is showing up the 26th. Ryne knew exactly where I was coming from, and that is why I consider him good people, and a good friend. I want to rep Cunningham MotorSports of SoCal proudly back on the east coast in shows, meets, races & mags, and he's going to make it happen. I can't thank him enough!!!

Thanks very much Sam! I appreciate when new members to my thread read it and make a comment like you did! It tells me I'm going in the right direction when you guys enjoy what I've built. Stop back cause it always seems like something new is happening!

Pete, I'm really going to try to attend it this year because I'll be back on the east coast, and much closer to the venue. Plus a chance to meet you & a bunch of other great people=Priceless!

I need to thank Jessica of Supercharger Connections for doing everything in her power to get me the 8 rib pulley kit overnighted to Cunningham Motorsports today! You rock Jess! Supercharger Connections has always come through for me.

Ryne of CMS and I pretty much agreed that at the power level, it would be best to go to an 8 rib set up, and since its at CMS for the clutch and axle upgrades, and since I'm heading back to NJ, we should do it now. I want this car a CMS build, and Rynr understood that, so between 2 great companies, CMS & SC Connections, it's going to happen! Thank you both!

Kurt, the C5 Fest is definitely on my agenda this summer, especially since I checked out the route and see that it's about a 600 miles straight shot west of me. Lucky you that you're in the host state! I already have the dates circled on my calendar and once I'm settled back in NJ, I'll start making arrangements, I have a few things up my sleeve.

Jess, you've been a BIG part of my build and responsible for about 100 or so RWHP The way you put everything together last week in one day was simply AWESOME & Ryne & I thank you BIG TIME!!! You'll always be the first call I make whenever I need anything for my Supercharger! You guys ROCK!!!

Thanks V & likewise to you. I've seen your build and can't wait to see it person! I know you've used ECS and that's who my builder, CMS recommends I use as well, so I'm sure you can help me out there! Once I'm back next week and settled, I have a few ideas I'd like to share with some fellow NJ/PA Camaro owners, you'd definitely be one of them! Stay tuned


As for the ZLX, the Mcloed RXT clutch & G Force Axles were installed on Thursday, like I've always said, Cunningham Motorsports is the BEST in the West! And thanks to Jess @ Supercharger Connections, she was able to get my 8 Rib Pulley kit delivered to CMS on Friday, and hopefully they'll go in today because the clock is ticking louder now. Ryne is also adding a 1LE fresh air PCV to the set up, the guy really knows his stuff! The ZLX has a date with the car hauler on Friday to start heading east.

Thanks man. My opinion is your certainly moving back to a good area haha ECS is one of the best in the business. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Just shoot me a PM with anything or have any questions. Lot of good shows up coming in the area this year. Don't worry I'm tuned in

Sweet bro, good to hear! We're going to do some good things in the future

Just picked up the ZLX this morning after Cunningham Motorsports installed the Mcloed RXT clutch, the G-Force 1000HP axles & the Innovators West 8 Rib Pulley kit. I definitely recommend the 8 rib set up once you start going over 550-600 RWHP and I'm way past that!

BIG THANKS to my GOOD FRIEND, Ryne Cunningham for taking care of me and making this BEAST of a car, and also to Jessika at SupperCharger Connections for getting me the 8 rib pulley on a day's notice, you guys are the BEST!!!


Just waiting for the enclosed car hauler to get here to load up the ZLX & Benz, and then the drive east starts on Saturday, and I plan to be back to NJ by May 1st. Once I get settled, I'll have some BIG plans for my NJ/PA Camaro brethren, so get ready!

Here's the new 8 rib pulley Ryne retuned the car and pulled a little timing out because I'll be using 93 octane, plus the Torco, so I should be around 97 octane. In the 80 miles I just put on the car driving home, I could tell how much stronger (if that was possible) the car was running. The new RXT clutch is like butter and has a stock feel, and yet has 1000 HP holding power! I'm so glad I spent the extra money and listened to Ryne regarding the clutch....NEVER DOUBT YOUR TUNER/BUILDER!!!!! We also added a 1LE Fresh Air PCV, you can see it where the oil cap used to be.
