Ya I gave up my Harley right after I was suffering from heat stroke traveling threw SD and got dizzy and ran off hwy 90 doing 80 mph. I broke my neck and had my neck fused. I hit my head so hard that it crushed all eight of my back teeth ($19800.00 in just dental work to my teeth).I Lost about 80% of the movement of my neck. Came within a hair of being paralyzed or dead. Doctor said I would never work again but I am stubborn and got the Doc to sign off and I went back to work. My wife was on the bike also and luck she only fractured her pelvic bone but other than that she was ok. So we took the insurance money from our bike and got us a Camaro Convertible and my car is louder than my Harley. Lol

Man, I'm right with you! I've got a wide glide in the garage for sale right now. I'm 62 and I am fully aware of my short comings such as weak legs, etc. I'm selling it before it kills me, this is coming from a guy who has rode bikes his whole life. My Camaro is a very good replacement for it.
PS: I bought my Camaro with the supercharger already installed. It makes a SS hard on tires at about any speed and I have 12" wide michelin super sports on it.

I'm 28...maybe the youngest??? I regret buying ZL1 wheels and not getting a supercharger. It's gonna happen but not until I get a raise at the end of the year so in the mean time I am going with a TSP 231/236 cam. Matt at FSP will be doing my install and tune. It's not a blower specific cam but he recently had a car put down 715hp with it and his ECS kit

I also regret getting a girlfriend. If I didn't speed my money on her I could already have a SC lol.

Only regret I have is not buying the proper fuel system to start. I opted for the cheap way out, bap, and it was not enough.
So now I'm getting a squash double pump return style fuel system .
Just do it right the first time

I regret that I ran out of money and my wife's approval of any more mods at about the same time. Would have like to pull the motor and stroke it in addition to what I already have for the sake of safety and a little more power. To be honest though...I have more than enough power for the street and it runs like a champ almost 2 years since my last mod without any problems. Go for it...just figure out exactly what you want, save up and do all the engine stuff all at once. It's cheaper than paying a shop to take the same things apart and back together again 3 times...ie, supercharger, then cam, then stroker.

I am 65. I have put over 10,000 trouble free miles on since I got the supercharger. Love the whine from the cog drive I got from Jessica. I did have to put on 305 rear tires though. PS: I average over 19 MPG.

No regrets! Going on 2 1/2 years with a Livernois built, cammed with Maggie. Over 14000 miles since build.

I was getting 25 mpg ave on highway driving, but since changing gears to 3:90 over the winter (which has really let the camaro jump) will see what new ave is.

Why? I don't mean to argue, or doubt your statement, I'm just curious.

No worries at all

I use my car for drag racing and the maggie gets heat soaked very easily. Also im pushing the maggie pretty far to its limits. If i could do it over i would get a PC hands down. Just personal preference for what my car is used for

Now I understand. Thanks. Mine is strictly on the street, very rarely anywhere near the redline, and I'm real happy with the Maggie, that's why I asked.

Maggie is by far better looking. I know pro charger is actually better at track, but Maggie is better street
