I will probably show my family first and then cruise around town for a bit to hear the rumble but not revving it too high cuz i want the piston rings to seat properly and all that good stuff. After +500 miles, its all gonna come out of the box

No need to do "break-ins" anymore really. Engines are pretty much broken-in when installed these days.

At least, that's the last I heard about it.

Plan A: (assumes top dog car has 500+ HP)
I-20 Westbound for 87 miles west of Fort Worth to State Hwy 16 (mile marker 361). Southbound on Hwy 16 through the heart of the Texas Hillcountry to Kerrville. Then Westbound 25 miles to Hunt, TX. One of the best drives in Texas...especially the 30 mile section between Llano and Fredericksberg.

Plan B: To my tuner

Day 1: Down the 60 onto the I-10, off the I-10 to the 202, 202 to the 101, 101 ALL the way around phoenix back to the I-10 (with a short side trip to near by Scottsdale Barret Jackson area). I-10 back to the 60, then home

Day 2: tint shop (must have in phx)

First months weekends will be spent in fabrication of the audio system. Nothing huge, just probably a pair of 12's and a 10 with amps and cap with surround upgrades if the factory isn't up to snuff.

After that its just a bunch of small road trips and the normal daily driving~

Drag younger sister, who is a Mustang-driver, with me to dealership to get Camaro, followed by road trip to see older sister, who is also Mustang-obsessed. Then mother of all road trips with my younger sister in the new Camaro, just because I can. Probably Vegas, or someplace like that.

I'd cruise to Santana Row near San Jose, CA and watch as heads turn from the common everyday lambo or ferrari to this new Topless beast I have.

I don't really have a plan. Just plan on spending about 300 dollars in gas the first few days. I'm hoping I don't have to spend 500+ dollars on new tires in that time too.

If you only spend $500 on tires, you buy some pretty crappy tires.....I spent almost $600 on tires for my Tahoe...and they are only 17" low budget tires (since I'm planning on getting rid of it here soon).

Probably just drive it over to my parents houses to show it off. My dad wants one of his own, and my mom has always liked Camaro's (she had a '70).

I'm sure I'll stop at my brothers grave with it since this was supposed to be the first car I owned that was faster than his...

Most of the people I'd show it off to work with me, so I'll just wait 'til the next day to show it to most people.

First stop; Home. I'll park it in the garage, next to the SS, and spend a few days detailing and 'Zainoing' him.

Once that's done, it doesn't matter. Just hop in, keep the radio turned off, and just enjoy a long, aimless, cruise listening to that great American V8 rumble in one of my favorite "friends" of all time.

I run on 14" rims now (1997 eclipse rs). I figured 250 per rear tire.

Guess I was wrong. What are they? around $450 per tire?
