Exactly this V8 trumps the six mentality is sometimes on the verge of ignorance. The more you mod a car the chances of your mpg going down is high! You mod that V8 enough and your mpg is at 12 mpg enjoy. I will mod my V6 run 13's with a 5 sec 0-60 and still be at 20 mpg avg. Besides the sleeper effect will be priceless !!!

This reminds me of a lapse in... rational thinking... I had a few years back... make it 9 years ago when I bought a 2000 Mustank GT over a 1999, or was it a 98 Camaro SS, it was everything I wanted in a Camaro, color t-tops wheels you name it, it had it. It was $6,000 more than the Mustang. I bought the Mustang thinking cool I saved $6,000 on a muscle car. later I found out that it would cost me at least $6,000 to upgrade the suspension and motor to even come close to meeting the specs and performance of the SS Camaro... To this day I have no clue why I settled for a Mustang, I hated FORD's... still do. Never again I tell you NEVER again!!! I got worked off the line too many times by the SS camaro and the WS6 Firebird. One time I did a stop light drag with both at the same time all 3 of us in a row... I kept up with the WS6 for about... 5 seconds, maybe, MAYBE! probably more like 2, the Camaro SS HAA all I could see were tailights in the dark night and the chirp of his tires every time he shifted gears

The difference i that you are assuming every v6 guy wants to have the fastest Camaro out there some guys just want a well rounded fun to drive car and with a few mods be faster than the average 6

The supercharger? Probably between $4-$6K I'm guessing, based off what I have seen for similar vehicles, I have seen some close to $8,000

Long tube headers, $800-$1200 again a semi educated guess... but it's been a while since I've looked.

True true, That's how I feel about my V6 in my FJ, It's the only thing you can get in the FJ but there are guys who have put superchargers in theres... WOW... I like to do small mods as time goes on, so it feels like a new car after every mod

Exactly it almost seems sometimes on here that the v6 is the lesser car. Most people will NEVER take there Camaro to the track!

Nah it's about what you want and what fits your needs. It's a Camaro regardless IMO. I know plenty of people who want one, but don't want the V8, and that's fine, I personally will be getting a V8, but that's because thats me. That's what I want, that's why i am buying it, some peopel are buying one for the looks and don't need nor want the V8, too the V6 in this thing is said to not be a slouch at all!! I read a review on teh V6 WOW, very impressive.

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.

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!
