If you want to enjoy any benefits of it then yes. With no re-tune then you will be running rich.

As with any "performance"enhancement, both can create problems if improperly used or in the event a component fails...

I think I read Ted is your builder... Talk to him... He'll give you the straight scoop on either system and if he recommends one or the other, or neither...

I'll give you teds answers.

Meth: No

Nitrous: Maybe

Tune for race gas: Yes

Ted doesn't tune for power with meth. Especially since all of the recent failures. He just disconnected the meth on my fathers GN and tuned it for race gas. You may be able to get him to do a nitrous tune but unless you're a track junkie what's the point. It isn't continuous power. After the cam you can add some boost but after that it's time to go into the engine.

Very true, i havent brought the car to the track yet bc i want to finish my mods. But like u said it really wont make sense if i dont bring the car to the track alot. What would u think id run in the quarter with a whipple, blower cam, 8-9lbs of boost on 93, headers 3" system, drag radials, and skinnies.

Sorry yes it is a stick car, my cam isnt in yet but running my whipple it put down just about 570 to the wheels. Im thinking with the blower cam and a smaller 3.750" pulley hopefully looking at 650 rwhp. Correct me if im wrong

With a blower CAM and 3.75 inch pulley my Whipple put out about 10psi. It was in the 630 to 640 rwhp range on pump gas and 730ish on race gas. Stock bottom end so both tunes were on the conservative side on the timing.

My car went 10.5 at 135.

The next really important question you need to ask yourself is what are you going to do about the rear end and the clutch?

You may want to upgrade the drivetrain before hitting the track.

Forget the ZR1 clutch...it's a POS and you are going to need a 9" if you intend to have traction. The Supercharger was the cheap part.

I had the twin carbon and it held my power great. If you intend to flog it at the strip regularly then I would spend the extra for the triple. If you are just an occasional racer then the Twin is more than capable.

I run the triple carbon after several other attempts.. and could not be happier... My builder stated... "I Love this clutch,"

It drives like stock, and grabs everything you throw at it on the track... The clutch release point is a bit higher up in the pedal travel than stock... but you know there is full disengagement and it only take a little bit of driving to get used to it...

I wont ever have anything else in my Camaro... My other TWIN disc was like a light switch... On or off, and a booger to drive on the street...

I have the Stage 3 kit from Snow. The controller offers a lot of fine tune adjustments.

Is the meth injection worth it from your experience?

Is anyone boosting with meth and spraying ON TOP of the meth?

I'm thinking about a shot but have been thinking it would be smarter to unplug meth and run race gas when I decide to use the shot. But was wondering if you just run the shot straight through with meth.

Sounds like a tuning nightmare.

Ok. How many cylinders does it have and is it an automatic? I'll get that fixed right up quick.

hmmm, I remember something about an EVO motor... Must be 4 cylinder... with an auto-stick....

Actually Camslam... I'm sure it could be done but tuning would be a booger...
