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!
