I told him he should of had you send the tranny down to Circle D to be beefed up.

you shouldnt decide on your cam based on your current converter. its better to go a little bigger now and swap the converter later (which you already plan on doing anyway) instead of going with a smaller cam and wishing you had more down the road.

223/231 .611/.617 115+3

So I'm not really sure. It's one of the two.
stage 1.... boring

Why would I do that? Be a waste of money. When if it starts to go out THEN I do it. I may never have to do it.

I should have seen that one. hahaha

But I'm not worried about the smaller cam. I have to drive it as my DD and the power will still be there. Wheels would come first in the equation anyway.

Fair, but in a year I would be the same regarless. Even if I got another 15 rwhp with a bigger cam, I'd still want more after a year.

BUT, I'm pretty content. I think I'll hit my limit this time. And this LS3/L99 bottom end can only take so much. I'll be happy to keep it tame.

PQ, do you have any idea how jealous I am that you keep modding your car? I've been lusting for mossman's cam setup from Vengance since I saw his youtube back in 2009...

Ok. On my iPhone the pics are sideways. But on the PC they are normal. I used MS Picture Manager to do turn them. WTF?

I'm remember PQ back in 09 saying he was going to stay stock. Now he's in need of an intervention for a very contagious modding addiction.

Once you're hooked, its hard to stop.
