Be nice if I knew I'd have the cash to pay for unforseen expenses and not having a warranty... I haven't seen any trees around here with money growing on them....

Another good thing about SLP is you can build whatever package you want. You want just the SC, you got it, you want to add exhaust, done....the possibilities are endless. I stayed away from all they appearance upgrades, and went with their SC & Loudmouth II exhaust (about $8000 installed), everything else I upgraded on my own.

I said it before, I will say it again. The minute I forked over the cash for the SC, I started my "376 Crate Engine Fund". IF and by the time something breaks, hopefully I will have enough cash to fix it.

Don't drive like an idiot and things are less likely to break. There are lots of guys like me who have done thousands of miles running around 600rwhp who are not breaking things. Get someone who knows what they're doing to do the work and you minimize risk.

Sure ... if you want to run a set of drag radials and drop the clutch at 6000rpm, things are going to let go.

Sounds like a plan! Hey, how come there aren't any Camaro clubs around here?

I was worried about the same thing but wanted more power under the curve. I installed a Magnuson TVS2300 (same as what SLP uses) and got EXACTLY what I was looking for. Awesome low-end torque! You won't be disappointed The only thing affecting my mpg is my foot now. Under normal driving it still makes 17 mpg driving around the city if I'm not constantly on it. Haven't taken it on a long road trip yet though. It's been holding up well, good luck!
