Maybe I will see you at some of the events or get togethers. I plan on going to a few events to meet other camaro owners.

Are you going to the track with it when the weather warms up or just a Daily driver ?
A fellow Camaro5 member near me went to New Era for a "tune" on his SS, was real happy.

I was planning on going to the track this summer sometime to see what it will do, but I normally just take it out cruising around on nice days. The guys at New Era really do a great job down there!

Mine is making around 14 psi boost. 2012ZL1 is the one making 18 psi.
The exhaust sounds awesome with the american racing headers and X pipe. When it gets up into the boost the exhaust really increases in volume. I love it!

It is very loud. The engine hasn't seen a lot of time at that boost yet. The winter arrived about 80% nto my datalogging for tuning. Waiting for the rains to stop, then finish the datalogging, tuning and hit the dyno. After that I am buying some drag radials for the vette rims and give the strip another try.
