Do you feel that headers and/or a camshaft will void the warranty on your power windows and radio?

A "can tune" voids the warranty just as well as any custom time. As far as GM, they are one in the same. The term canned tune refers to it being a cookie cutter tune that gets paved into every tunner with that same part number in the assembly line. A custom time is a time that was developed by a tunner with a dyno or by data logging. Custom or canned matters not a single little bit, not at all. It's a tune. A tune is a tune is a tune.

No Larry. As I said, I would just question if its worth keeping my extended warranty at that point since power train is already gone.

Unless you are yanking out your engines and using an engine dyno. Your crank estimates aren't useful.

When I had my car tuned it was done by Bryan@pcmforless at Lutz Racing in Mars. Bryan travels around the area tuning at different shops. I don't know if he still does but at the time, Bryan tuned the THR cars at Lutz. I've no way to judge his tune against anyone else's but I've not had any issues with it. Brendan, I bought the extended warranty for all the non drivetrain items. There's a ton of electronics on these and it's all tied together. I'd consider that before selling back your extended. I bought it with my heater core change in mind. I would NOT want to pay that bill. Just something to consider. Stainless Works headers go on relatively easy. The extensions were in the kit.

That's kinda what I was thinking in regards to the extended warranty, the non power train components. The more I think about it,the more I think I'll keep it.

Got a good price on headers, along with an installer and tuner, so might pull the trigger in the next two weeks I figure.

Talking Hawthorne NJ Speed Shop

Hi, I am new to Camaro 5 and have heard rumors lately that there is a new speed shop in Hawthorne NJ that has a Dynojet. Is this true? I guess they are supposed to be doing a lot of LS stuff, cams, blowers and tuning. Has anyone heard of this place? Any reply would be appreciated. THX

Hey,

Question for you all, how wide can you go on factory SS/RS wheels for both front and rear? Is the stock size about all you can use or will the car fit wider shoes easily with no mods?

I've heard guys running 305s in the rear and 265s up front. Check the Wheel/Tire portion. its been asked a few times, I just forget the exact answer.

A nitto tire runs slightly narrower. If your rear wheel is 9.5" a nitto 305 will fit no problems.

I'm the guy who found holes in your process and tells you to rewrite your procedures because they are not good enough, then I review them and recreate your entire structure

You just missed a huge one this past weekend in Butler, but the largest weekly cruise (non-competitive, though) is in Wexford each Friday: www.starlightcarcruise.com
