Thanks to Jerry at Ideal Garage and Jannetty Racing!!!

These guys just turned my car into a monster. Granted it's not a 600+ RWHP beast that some of the other guys out here are driving but for me, to go from 345 RWHP stock to what it is now (dyno numbers still TBD), is just awesome.

I ordered this setup from Jannetty:

2010 CAMARO L99 TO LS3 VALVE TRAIN CONVERSION
2010 CAMARO LS3 CAM PACKAGE
2010 CAMARO 6L80E TORQUE CONVERTER 2800 STALL
2010-13 CAMARO & ZL1 LONG TUBE HEADERS
2010-11 CAMARO CATTED SECTION 2.5 INCH OUTLET
TIMING CHAIN GEN 3, (3/8 X 7/32 X 6)
LS3 MELLING OIL PUMP
99-UP GM X3 POWERFLASH HAND HELD TUNER

They shipped this directly to Jerry (IdealG - You know him for his master cylinders!!!) who spent the past couple of weeks to convert the L99 to LS3 and install the upgrades.

In May ECS will be having a meet at their place where I have spoken to Alex and we are going to get my car back on the dyno to get my numbers now.

But you can follow the work that Jerry did here on my build thread:
My 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS

Between ordering the parts and the quality parts from Jannetty to the shop work by Jerry and Ideal Garage, you can't go wrong.

Anyone in the NJ can't go wrong with this combination!!!

Why would you say it's sad???

It was my choice to get rid of the AFM. If I wanted fuel saving, I would have gotten a Prius.

VVT has nothing to do with AFM. You could have gotten rid of AFM with any handheld tuner. VVT gives you a much broader powerband. The main problem with it is that many shops don't know how to properly tune it yet.
