Question Bumberas

Has anybody used Bumberas in Katy, TX? Anybody know what they're good at doing? Trusted, etc?

Try the regional section. I had good luck with local stuff for me, but having experience with the best speed shop in TX. I suggest Texas Speed, they are about 3hrs from Houston.

I moved the thread for you.

Bumberas is a good shop and they work on a lot of different cars.

For the Camaro, PowerFab, KP Racing and J-Rods Speed Shop are some of the most experienced in town with out cars. I won't mention the ones not to go to.

We are sneaky like that sometimes.

What kind of mods are you looking to do?

I'm not quite sure yet. I need to figure out just what it is I want.

I have an SS with the 1LE package and I love it. But these damn GTs...

I'd like more power, but I don't want to lose any low-end torque. I was thinking maybe a turbocharger might be a good solution. And I saw that GM cam and head upgrade a few months ago. I dunno. But I need someone that knows what they're doing. As, really, I don't.

Should have stopped by the Camaro Club meet this afternoon out your way. Lots of good advice there. Headers and tune are a nice add for HP but scrap that if you're thinking turbo LOL. PowerFab did a really nice turbo job the other day on one of our club members car. If you're thinking of going that route I would recommend them. The ECS superchargers that J-Rod works with a lot bring some big power too. Won't take much to knock off the GTs which is why I suggested headers... choices choices.

Stop buy one of the Camaro meets sometime and talk with others who have these mods.

Cool.

Like I said, I don't want to lose any torque. And it doesn't seem like I can really get near 500hp without forced induction, which requires more upgrades.

With all the right details you can get very close to 500 naturally aspirated with the LS3, but you're right that's about it.

Would I notice any low-end torque difference or just a little kick at higher rpms?

The torque curve will go up with the hp curve. They go hand in hand and your choice in camshaft would be the most important item.
