I had mine tinted. Maybe you can put some tint on them to mellow them out?

Like Emma's, they're tinted. I asked Jonathan for the SIM tinted covers. Tones it down a bit. At night though, like all of them, they're really bright!

Thought my son was moving this past weekend, it's next weekend so we missed out on the ACE5 meet at Stone Mtn. Looked like it was a blast!

Spent the weekend insulated the attic over the garage. It was a carport, but closed it in years ago. Thank god it was overcast skies! Heat in the attic sucks.

No car stuff this past weekend

J.T., saw you bowled well!

Nope, no water in mine. Even drove through a couple thunderstorms last week. I was concerned after Randy posted that.

No burned out LEDs either.

Hey, I've got 2 sets of 18"s at the house with tires. Will they fit over your Brembos?

So, having 4 cams, a semi non tunable ecm from Bosch, and six cylinders, what performance enhancements can be made to a 3.6 DI VVT? No turbos, no S/C, no ghost tunes, no aftermarket heads, no custom cam(s)........ seems to be at a standstill. The LPE thing never panned out.

And I know folks have turbo charged these, but that's not for me.

There's a thought. I think I'd have to upgrade the tranny though. Rearend should be good until it gives. The way I drive though it should last.

How about just an LS1, Vengeance cammed, tuned with a transmission from an LS3. Would that do it? That should net about 420 at the wheels. Plus, I can run 18"s. 430, perhaps?

Remember, the lightest Camaro built is the 1LT with a M6

I don't give that knowledge away! I "impart", if you will, a tidbit here and there.

I'll impart here; twin turbo with nitrous injected in the intake tube right after the turbo, then meth injected at the throttle body. Thoughts? Supercooled?

And then I took an ECM from an LS3 and plugged it up in my car. That didn't go well.
