LOL- I almost forgot how to drive it!

So far so good! Except they forgot to calibrate for my 3.73's....

Of course that meant I got to cruise home at an indicated 96mph!

Good to have her home- I've raised 3 children that have grown and left the nest. I swear I've worried more about this darn car than I ever worried about the kids!

Thanks Arno- that is the plan! I'm sure he'll move quickly to correct the issue.

A family run company called StreetDragz.com converts the local old airport to a timed 1/4mile track a few times a year.

I think they're due back here in Sept. Hopefully it will be some cooler then and I will be ready!

I'm looking forward to it and nervous at the same time! I guess that's called "fun"!

Whether I have beginner's luck or muff it badly, you can be sure I'll report back here.

I've had the car back 2 weeks but still looking for that speedo correction tune...

Makes it difficult to appreciate the new performance cause you're always calculating the approximate true speed- which seems to build more quickly, but it's an inflated number on the speedo and you're simultaneously worrying about a ticket!

Sure would make it easier to enjoy the car... Jesse?

I appreciate the sincere suggestion, but I'm referring to just driving around speeds. I haven't taken her out for any high speed "see what she'll do now" kind of runs.

Besides, I'm getting so far-sighted in my old age it takes me a moment to focus on the phone- LOL. That's the real reason older Americans don't text and drive- we can't see to do it!

www.apex-speed.com, Chase will take care of you! I've really liked mine since day one and believe the car really benefits N/A or FI.

I know alot of guys swear by their 3.91's, but I couldn't imagine bothering to use 1st gear if I had lower gearing than the 3.73's.

They're the gears Richmond makes for the SS (so you know they can handle even a modified V6), but will fit just fine in any stick shift V6.

It may have taken longer than expected- but everything about this install has!

Thanks to the perserverance of Jesse and Arno, my car now has an accurate speedo!

Thank-you both !!

Did read that dyno properly as nearly 400 RWHP?

From IPF tuning's website, it looks like it's 435 at the crank.... Clarification?

Is the because of extra mods?

That dyno is really confusing... It shows the baserun as RWHP, and the IPF run as 400 Crank HP...

Sweet numbers even still.

You're talking about this dyno right?

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...8&postcount=57

That is all RWHP....not crank.

IPF SC kits with extra bolt ons like what Ventmaster has typically put out 380 to 400rwhp depending on your transmission.

Wow ...

That's thing is significantly faster than a stock SS then!

Thanks for the clarification!

The SS will have more torque down low so typically they could still be a threat, but once your moving and your rpms climb the IPF V6 should pull on a stock or very lightly modded SS.

Yep- I still haven't made any track days and I can't get any SS guys to play on the street... but the car is strong down low (not as low as the SS) and all the way to redline.

They seem to sense something's not what it appears!
