+1 i hate the fact that some people think that just because our cars are V6's that somehow we are inferior and aren't worthy of any time and attention. If that were really true than how would you explain some four bangers beating V8's on the 1/4 mile and making enough power to make any V8 guy jealous. just because our cars are V6's doesn't mean that our cars don't deserve any attention.

Guys, don't all get ur panties in a bunch. That's the nice part about owning your own car. U can do whatever you want with it. Was simply inquiring about engine mods and Beowolf answered them for me and I appreciate it. Have a good one!!

I admire Beauwulf, I wish i had the time and money to be racing all the time =D

Beauwulf, do you have a link or thread that shows all of your suspension mods? I would like to take a look and see what your setup is like =p I was hoping for Pedders Xa coils and their swaybar kit soon. =D
I have the XA coilovers and a moderately aggressive alignment so far. I intend to get the "Solution B" sways, the rear cradle bushings, and a tower brace as I get the cash to mod up. All Pedders of course...

If you need alignment specs, ask "JusticePete". He'll get you setup for whatever mods and track type your running.

As far as autocross goes... check with Xanthos on my cars abilities...

Hey Beauwulf where did you get this stuff? I've been thinking about doing something similar (for the intake) for a couple months now but I couldn't find the right tubing, looks like you hit the nail on the head here. Looks great!

Thanks for the link, I'll probably mount mine similar to where you have yours. Which mount duct did you use for the bumper?

For the brake ducts I used the 7024 singles with 2.5" tube. I'm using the 7030 double with 3" tubing for my intake. I have two 3" mounts coming to use on the airbox (if they ever get here).

http://tinyurl.com/46pfrmt

I'm going to try to get both of those to mount over the hole where the snorkel goes into the box. I might have to split the location on the box though. I'll let ya know when I get the parts.

Nice. Have you ever taken brake temps after a run? Would be nice to see how much improvement you gain.

Thanks for the info Beauwulf, also did you use rivits or screws/bolts to attach it to the bumper? And is there any specific wire mesh you used ?

I used pop rivets since it is plastic to plastic. I added small washers to the tail side to keep them from pulling through.

Mesh was purchased here:

I'm thinkin though that a courser mesh might be better.

Someone keeps leaving stuff on my porch here... guess I'll have to install these as well!

Fronts are 255/35ZR20 Hankook Ventus V12s on a 9x20 TSW Nurburgring wheel.



Rears are 285/30ZR20 Hankook Ventus V12s on 10x20s...



They're going on a set of these....



Gotta love the "Tire Rack"! Ordered on Sunday.. here today!

I'm getting them installed Thursday evening. Then I'm off to Daytona to see the Continental Tire 200 on Friday! Camaros, Mustards, RX8s... etc on the roadcourse! Then Saturday the 24 hours of Daytona begins!

I'll post up video of the CT race sometime over the weekend.

Just curious... does the air going thru that hose go at enough velocity to be more effective than the air blocked from underneath by the supply hose?

I think you are being oversensitive... the Camaro 6 cyl is what YOU wanted. It's a great car that represents great value! Just don't over do the bolt on, tape on stuff. And DO NOT tint winddows yourself!

I hope so. This install isn't finished yet. I intend to add "dams" to the space between the splitter (removed ATM) and facia to help with the ram effect in the tube. Same deal for the intake duct (as yet not installed) which will basically box in the area. You'll see when I get time to remove the front facia for the mods.

We're in our "season" now at work so I gotta make the $$$ while it lasts! LOL! I intent to do a track day in Feburary to test some of these mods so I should be done before then.

OK... here's the beef! LOL! Sorry for the quality. Best I could do in the waning light.



The tires are about 1.7" shorter at 26.7" on the ground. Front is 0.1" taller though it looks like more. The difference in size does change the speedo.

VS my GPS, stock was :
ind 70=68
after the tire change:
ind 70=65

Roughly translated, that equals a gearing change to a 3.42...

I need to finish scrubbing the tires in but, initial impressions are positive! They are quieter than the PZeros and they seem to track better with my alignment specs. They are also quite a bit lighter.

Unsprung Weight savings are very good!
Wheels:
Front OE = 30.3 TSW = 24.0
Rear OE = 32.0 TSW = 24.5
Tires:
Front PZero = 32.0 V12s = 27.0
Rear PZero = 36.0 V12s = 31.0
Savings :
Front = 22.6 LBS
Rear = 25.0 LBS

Total savings = 47.6 LBS!

And a couple more pics:

THAT LOOKS GREAT...........and that weight savings is unbelievable. That is a ton of unsprung weight. Like dropping over 470 lbs of stationary weight.

Keep us informed of how you do.
