Holy crap Nick!! You've been busy. 600 rwhp? Wheelies at 100 mph? Unreal. I'm totally jealous and speechless. Good for you man, that is one bad ass Camaro (seems to still be in sheep's clothing - no STP, NASCAR, Whipple, etc, stickers on it). I buzzed through the thread kinda quick (in a daze), any 1/4 mile times yet? Since the last time we spoke, I've put on a new CAI... Now I want heads, cam, S/C, brakes, suspension... Your car is Da Bomb! Congratulations!

I have finally convinced the wife that she wants a 2011 GT, now to get her to go for the GT500. Then again she keeps saying things like she should sell the GT and get two cheaper cars for it (one for 16 yr old daughter). Ugghhh.

BTW, a certain 2SSARME has popped up on a Mustang forum, you know, makin' friends. I hear he was excommunicated from here...

Thanks for the kind words bud! I haven't had it back a week yet so no 1/4 mile times. Hopefully soon though. I'm not the type to advertise with emblems and stickers. Another reason why I went with the stealth look of the ADM gauges rather than the pod gauges on the A pillar. I'd rather someone discover that I'm blown once they hear the sound of the Whipple in boost.

Keep me updated on your car and future mods. Your car will be a beast once you get your build finished. Let me know what your wife decides to go with too.

2SSARME =



The next Camaro5 fest is in Chandler, AZ at Firebird Raceway. You and your wife should come.

Congrats on COTW! Your car is awesome!

Couple of questions... how is the driveability with that cam? Did the do the LS3 conversion or keep the VVT when they installed the cam?

Thanks and yours is as well!! The drive-ability hasn't changed a whole lot with the cam I went with. Due to California's strict smog laws I went with a mild Comp cam to compliment the blower. Has a slightly rougher idle but still good as a DD. I wanted to keep the VVT rather than going with the complete LS3 conversion. I don't think the VVT is as bad as some people think. I PROMISE I will get a video up soon. If nothing else, a simple video of me just starting it and letting it idle.

Thanks!! I've put a good deal of time, love and money into my Camaro and it's rewarding to be recognized like this. Especially with so many other bad ass Camaros on this site.

Thanks Donna!! I don't think mine is deserving of it considering so many others here that have killer rides but I'll take it.
