Hello to all, I'm fairly new with a 2LT RS 2013 camaro. Really looking to buy a 2014 2SS 1LE.

I need to know the jargon. What are 'DRs, and what are 'LTs'.

Thanks for your help.

Jim

DR is drag radials (the tires) and LT is long tube headers like kooks headers

If the 1LE driver can launch the car and hit all shifts... you don't stand a chance

I remember the Hennessey CAI being the only one that lost horsepower in JRE's test but correct me if I'm wrong.

LOL yeah that one probably hurts him more than it helps once heat soak sets in. I would advise to sell it and get a ADM, CAI inc or Vararam. That canned tune cant be helping too much either. Needs a JRE mail order tune or better yet a dyno tune from a good tuner.

my two cents is that you should get rid of that cai as well as that diablo tune. A tune from a shop will do amazing things compared to that handheld tuner. since tunes usually run around 500 i would recommend getting good parts first to maximize the value, like new cai and LT if you can afford them. Once you put those on and tune you'll feel like your driving a different car

If youre getting charge more than 300$ for a CAI/LT tune, youre getting ripped. 500$ is usually the price to tune a camshaft..I'll add that LG CAI, New Era CAI, Halltech CAI are nice too. The best looking one the is the New Era Performance CAI!!

Usually the time doesn't start until you move, the lights are for reaction timing and competitive purposes.

Do as I suggest and get a proven cai like a CAI inc, ADM or Vararam. Have Jannetty send you a tune to load into your Diablo or if there is a really great tuner in your area get a custom dyno tune. I bet anything your not much faster than stock maybe even slower than stock with those wheels. Unless the bling is really important to you I would sell the wheels and tires as well and get some TSW Nurb's in 20 or 18inch. With the new wheels and sticky tires, new tune and new CAI you should have no problem running 12's in good DA.
