Also, I saw a few episodes of The Bugs Bunny/ Road Runner Show where Wylie Coyote strapped on a rocket from ACME. He didn't catch the Road Runner but he was moving pretty good IIRC. I doubt GM would invalidate your warranty if you strapped on rocket boosters....

Honestly this thread made my day, some of the comments on here are soo funny

As for the op
Your two cars behind. It wouldn't be hard to match him if it wasn't for warranty. But with warranty in mind, suspension and gears are probably your best bet.
I would normally say cams, full exhaust and tune

so what you 2 should do is hustle the mustang guys tell them ya'll only race for cash and tell them you have a choice the v-6 or the v-8 . they will always pick the v-6. he spanks that stang and ya'll split the cash. both of you win. you shouldn't be racing another Camaro, its just wrong. and supercharge that beast!!!

Do what he did, say SCREW the warrantee and mod the hell out of that beast. Put similiar mods that he did on your SS and see if he can keep up when your putting +600 rwhp to the ground!!!

Even with bolt on mods that will not void warrantee, you will not get much at all out of them unless you tune for those mods, then you can get the full benefit of the bolt on mods. Tune will void your warrantee though so you need to make a decision.

If you want to keep the warrantee, live with the fact that your car has ALOT of untapped potential that will stay UNTAPPED!!!

If it is the STS kit, then about $6K.
