I was told the minute I go with a larger cam or supercharger that I can plan on having tranny issues because the factory tranny cant handle the power?

We can fit some Pretty darn big cams in these engines but Bigger Is NOT Better.

I was told by a local shop that I know has been posted on here as having trouble with L99 tunes. In order to make the next best investment for power I thought a cam might be that option. They said we can do it but plan on leaving and possibly killing your tranny.

It hurt to hear this because it makes me feel like the camaro is weak!

With my tuning you will Have no Problems with your trans due to a Cam or Supercharger.

The tranny's seem to hold up well but you'll have to drop a grand or so into a converter once you put a decent sized cam in.

damn 3600 is a high stall ..unless you are tracking? I went with a 3000 and it tames my 224/236 pretty darn well...good shake at idle

Obnoxiously loud, generally means obnoxiously loud in cabin. Corsa is decent system, and great with drone management,... anything else you get will probably drone its a-- off. Borla is loud as hell with a cam and kooks.. but with the cam, damn does it drone at highway speeds of 70-75

I did an off-the-shelf Comp Cam 231/247 and had excellent results.. Also had Corsa and it sounded nasty...

3400 is probably a good recommendation... who's doing the work for you...?

Lower stall won't give you better manners...
