Hey PQ, learn how to take pics with your iPhone son!! Save your pennies for a new bottom end!! Even with a 3.2 and the cam helping lower the boost you will be entering the "borrowed time" range. At least run some race gas when you beat that bitch.

My "mild" blower cam made a huge difference in exhaust tone/volume. And I have what is considered the "quiet" Magnaflow 3" Comp catback. You have LT's right? Could be some serious rumble/lope there. I had to have most of the lope tuned out of mine as I have to deal with the smog nazi's here and need to pass a visual as well as a sniffer....
93 all day long.

Nah. I'm not really an audiophile guy.

Maybe at the track. I don't beat on it often.

The only item of concern will be the 6L80E... We have close to 30 2010/2011 Camaros riding around on 11 to 12 psi with no issue. a SAFE tune goes a long way in reliability....

The trans, if tuned right, will be fine. My car, blown and beaten, has a stall and after two years is still perfect. 12psi on the stock internals is def pushing it. Tuned well or not. Anyone will tell you that. These engines weren't built to handle that. Especially on pump gas.

Anyone can "ride around" on a car that's makes 12 psi and be fine. Let's face it, you'll never see that on the street. Push the car and then when the chance for problems dramatically increases. I have a car that makes 20 psi. When I street drive it I never make more than a few pounds of boost.

My experience with my GTO was simple - nothing broke. It just wore down. Transmissions wear down. More power, more quickly. More time on the power, more quickly. The only remedy is to rebuild with stronger parts, which I did with my 4L60.

That said, I can see a well-tuned tranny lasting maybe 20k? But somewhere down the line, you'll be rebuilding it.

Me, once I go FI or H/C, I don't see it lasting long.

Lasting long? How long is that? I have over 50 10 second passes on mine so far and knock on wood it's still good as new. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't expect it to last and when it goes I'll throw a built one in but for the time being it's still prefect.


P.S. I hope I just didn't jinx myself!!

Uhm the 3.2 is gonna RAISE the boost, not lower it. That is why I said "YIKES"...

Ron said it's their Stage1 LS3 cam.
223/231 .610/.617 115+4

But they also have a blower cam.
223/231 .611/.617 115+3

So I'm not really sure. It's one of the two.

Man...I remember when you were thinking about getting rid of your Camaro. Look how far you've come with it since then...

Before the initial fuse pull I was pretty frustrated.

Funny how adding over 250 hp makes things all better.
