Thanks for sharing Tracy it's looking good! I see the SC belt doesn't have far to stretch to reach the pulley. That's nice.

Well got the car tuned and headers installed running good and strong now. These were all my left over parts. As you can see I removed the second smaller cats. I bout my headers with a second set of cats from a C5 member so I didn't have to weld anything. But still had everything welded just to be secure.

I found out many years ago (I make it seem like I'm old lol, only 32 lol) when I first hit the car scene that there is 2 types of Royal Purple. One is garbage and one isn't. This is how you can tell if you getting ripped off. Royal Purple is made in the USA so check the bottle. The trash kind is made overseas and is a water down version. Try and do the fluid changes yourself cause some shops or whatever may go the cheap route but charge you for the real stuff.

Just dropped off the car at the shop about 2 hours ago. And got all the detail worked out! I have added the AEM A/F gauge and having the Tranny and Diff oils upgraded. Also looking at upgrading my clutch, Tracy said there's 2 options. He will get back to me with the details. I am looking at 540HP since I have a manual tranny. The power lost isn't as great as the automatic's so we shall see. He also said since the LS3 and LLT M6 share the same diff (twin turbo M6 guinea pig lol). Getting the power to the ground won't be much of a issue like the auto's. I'm also getting some Nitto's for controlling the power on the streets. (FYI again, I'm getting the upgraded kit! Top of the line everything!)

Couldn't drive or hear Gretchen because Tracy is rerouting the pipes she looks good regardless and the RX SuperCharger is looking awesome. IPF who?! Lol! There are 2 more camaro's in route to the shop also. That's all I will say lol.

Tracy will be updating the thread as the build goes on! And FYI the weather down here is very wet and ugly. So be patient with the 1/4 / 0-60 times for any of these builds. Posting pictures in a few.

I will post all kinds of videos when I get the car back. But Tracy will be posting pictures and videos as time goes! Still debating if I should pick the car up or have it transported to me. Here is me and Tracy talking and looking over the gauge cluster options! And a photo of my intercooler! Miss my car already lol!

Is that 540 rear wheel hp?! That would be awesome! What psi will you be running? Are you getting an auxiliary fuel pump? What's the total price tag so far if you don't mind telling us?

The kit I got comes with top of the line parts and turbos installed is $7900! But the base kit is $6900 installed. The 540 is to the Crank. I'm the first M6 with this set up so the rwhp is not know yet. But the automatics are putting down 420rwhp. I should be around 450-460rwhp. But we shall see. I'm saying no less than 430rwhp. I am not getting the fuel pumps yet so I will be limited to 6psi's.

Also along with the new clutch. I'm also looking at adding 3.73 gears from the SS (adds about 41 rwtq from my research). That's balanced enough to not lose to much drivability like going 4.10.

Also here are some pictures Tracy posted on the other V6 Camaro website.

Not sure it adds any torque.. just makes it so you hit your torque sooner. Gears don't add torque.

Go to Post #7. It puts more TQ to the wheels. Plus I researched it around. Upgraded gears do add some TQ.

I have 3.73.. I didn't gain torque. They put the peak torque lower in the rpm range, but it doesn't create new torque.

No...gears do not create more actual engine torque....just get the power to the ground easier and more efficiently and should definitely be noticeable to the driver.

Jeff is right, it does not create torque, but it does multiply the torque at the wheels. you would "feel" more torque. but not "have" more torque.
