I've been wondering, if we did get up to around that range, would the v6 transmission be capable of handling that on a daily basis without excessive wear?

Stay at it man!
Thanks man I really appreciate the support! Here's a link to my picture game I stole from another forum I have to say the game is addicting and very fun if it is played right and people actually participate (rules and instructions are in the thread) http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=222948

I would really appreciate if you could help start this thread off with me because it's such a fun game but seems like no one is willing to do the first challenge but I feel like once they see people do it they will do it!

Honestly I think you will be fine. Now if you run the car down the road like a dragster that's a different story, but if you use it as a regular daily driver and gun it like normal like you would without all that HP you should be fine. But it is deffintly a good feeling knowing that you have a very powerful car!

With cam shafts (when mace finishes them), CAI, high flow cats, and ported throttle body, it's looking like we may be able to get some serious power! It's exciting! lol

Superchargers or Turbochargers

I am looking at the 2012 lfx V6 to replace my 1995 LT1 Corvette. I am specifically interested in the LT2 package and was wondering if anyone had advice/info on the different options and whether they were worth the extra bucks?

Also, I would want to supercharge or turbocharge later...are there any products yet?

I sense a severe lack of understanding of bolt on mods and their benefits on with LFX owners....

LT1 is an engine. 1LT is a trim model. LS1, LS2, LS3 are engines. 1LS and 2LS are trims. Don't confuse the two.

Aside from whether it comes with an automatic or a manual, the 1LS to 2LT are all the same engine.
