I'm not feeling the hood, but I'll take the long tubes.

The 1.85 rockers will take your lift from the stock .551 to .600 without adding any total duration or increasing valve overlap. Duration @.050" will be slightly increased, by maybe a couple degrees, simply because the valves reach that lift sooner.

The SLP rockers are NOT full roller rockers. They have a roller fulcrum, but not a roller trunion. They're usually good for around 10 RWHP, give or take a few. Good bolt on piece if you're not wanting to crack the motor open. And they look just like stock rockers, so your service manager may not even notice

Keep in mind if you get these you'll also need new springs.

Yep...and this is exactly how I plan on getting a few "additions" to my THRSS!

Let's see...I think I'll take some ...

long tubes...

chambered exhaust...

cold air intake...

painted stripes...

duck tail spoiler...

grill...

...and if it fits the budget...a supercharger...(but I'm sure I'm dreaming on that one!!!:()

End of June, baby...here I come!

and here's the original letter...

I guess if we can't get a Camaro based Firehawk this is the next best thing. I love SLP!

Those reasons are why I am buying the v6 and the mods I will do will make my v6 faster maybe not v8 faster but faster. So the idea that v8 is the only option for fast is ludicious. Besides 18 mpg is garbage for the average comuter! Just because seine wants to modify there v6 doesn't make them a lesser camaro enthusiast. V8 isn't the be all end all

modding and LSX isn't going to give you 12mpg this site is just littered with clueless posts

my 383 LS1 camaro with 450rwhp got 27mpg on the highway generally got 22-23 mixed.

It is going to take some time for many people to break away from that old mind-set. 1st your statement about V6 camaro owners not careing about power is simply not true, If that were the case they would get V6 Mustang. The V6 cobination of Power/Fuel Economy/Price is unmatched by anything I can think of. Say for an example a 1LT/RS V6 add CAI/headers/exhaust and you easily have a 13 sec car that gets close to 30 mpg with an electronicaly limited top speed of 155 MPH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is incredibly value for the everyday man. Gm finaly has learned from their mistakes and made the V6 a car worth driving, it sounds like a cheaper Infinity G37 coupe.

Sorry to inform you but my 91' RS w/LB9 5.0l was getting right at 30mpg and so was my 2000 SS LS1.

Actually 6 is < than 8. Grade school math.
Don't get me wrong, I think that is 1 of the best engines GM has built recently and I wouldn't mind having a CTS with it, but the v8 tops it. The LS series is ahead of the pack when it comes to efficiency...

In any model lineup please tell me where the v6 is the top model over a v8.

just because it doesn't have the same set up doesn't make it lesser. All I'm saying in this car each model is for different people. Some people on this forum look down on the 6 and those who would like to mod it.

I'm guessing if you are planning on running a "hot cam" then you shouldn't put on these rockers? I know on my old mini you had to be careful because of interference.
