344 hp

Beautiful car , I was wondering why it is only 344 rwhp I thought stock was 400? I just bought mine & I am planning on doing some mods so I am not sure if I missed something does it get less than 400 hp stock?

400 hp is at the crank. There is hp loss through the transmission.

rwhp is always less than crank hp.

Well, as far as I know it is 100% the only one in existence. The emblem is from Sparks Restorations (http://www.sparksrestorations.com) and I sent it to AAC Style (http://www.automotivelightstore.com) to add the colorshift lighting. I don't have a video of it on the car atm, but I have one of it on my table...it is only hooked up to a 9v battery so you can't see the blue lighting because it needs 12v. But you will get the jist of it. I will have to upload it and then post it for you. As soon as I get it turned right side up and hooked up to 12v, I will get another video up and let you know it is posted. I will tell you though, it doesn't look as good as the illuminated chevy symbol, because you really can't see the SS in the dark. So it just looks like a black rectangle.

As for the painted engine cover, I got it from the dealership like that. But there are lots of different folks out there now who do it. RPI designs (www.rpidesigns) did my fuse box cover and brake fluid reservoir cover and they also do the engine covers. I would also highly recommend Gary at www.garyscustomz.com for any custom painting! I got my front fascia from him....perfect paint match!!

As for subthump....overall, not very impressed....I really need to get around to documenting the problems with the box. Just havent had the time! I'm interested in hearing your issues, did you do a post on it somewhere?

So, drove to Texas to see Andy over at ADM Performance for a tune. I have to say I was impressed!! I was greeted immediately when I walked in the door and was welcomed into a pristine shop!! I'm telling you, you could have eaten off the floor in this place...FAR BEYOND the normal "10 second" rule!! Just seeing how they took care of their shop told me my car was in good hands!! Andy took the time to ensure everything was just right with my tune and he took the time to explain everything to me which I really appreciated!! While he was working his magic, one of his "resident" customers, Rick, and I had various conversations from the front of the car all the way to the rear from superchargers to gears! I departed the shop with a lot more knowledge, 18 more horses and a car that was VERY happy with her set up!! Although I am not sure what performance mod is next, I do know I'm looking forward to our next trip to see the guys at ADM Performance!!

Here's a look at my numbers:

well she isnt loud anymore sounds like a stock camaro with a cat back thats the only downer I sold my ARH headers cold air intake and 3 inch arh x pipe which I loved but it was worth it the car is nuts plus the money I got back helped pay off part of the turbo build

the Turbo doesnt kick in till around 2800 rpms so driving under that you would never even know its there, although once you get into the boost its like being grabbed by the throat and slammed back into the seat i love it

plus its much less abuse on the motor than a supercharger, SC is agreat option as well but for me I use the car for trips with the wife and my sons so I needed the jeckle and hyde best of both worlds effect
if you come to canada in august you can drive her
