Are you kidding me? Your car looks great. Very nice.

As far as the rides...for a while they will be virtual rides (I'll post some videos when we do "tuning" runs) but first we have to get the thing completed and on the streets...

Hey guys, first post...... i agree.. f the warranty.. I love my Camaro and moding is the bonding process between man and machine. Love the turbo set up. What kind of HP TQ is this going to make and what have you got here? LSX? twin turbo right.... with air to water inter cooling of coarse.. Cool stuff.

Welcome to the site. Camaro 5 has a ton of great information and we all have a lot of fun. The members here are pretty darn cool.

Anyway, this is an LSX twin turbo. Pro Mod bottom end components, NASCAR valvetrain components and a lot of one-off items. HP and TQ will be well into the 4-digit range. One of the biggest challenges for this build was having a vehicle that you could cruise with the a/c on all day long, and then pull to the line at a drag strip and run single digits or hit a standing mile event and go 200. With the stock wheels on it the SST looks pretty normal.

Yeah - Now that's what we are talking about !!!

Pringles cans must be good for at least 20 lbs of boost...

I wonder if the green can or the Original red can has the most "boost compatible" wall thickness...

Bruce - I think you should do the first "tune" run by having it dropped out of a plane and use your chute, that way you know aero package works well.......

Nice... It will be the first Camaro UAV - Unmanned Aerial Vehicle.

The landing may be a bit harsh, but hey, that's what air bags are for...

Just got back from CA yesterday so I've been a little out of it. How's your build going ?

No true ETA yet other than "closer". Should be close to dyno time this week or next at the latest (famous last words).

Oh, I am sure we can go for a good (but safe) terror ride someday.
