Car looks awesome! I see what you are saying about the top of the curve. Is there any chance that you are running out of fuel pressure from about 5700rpm on up? It looks like you have the same significant drops in both RWHP and RWTQ at the same identical rpms. I would think that you would be making peak power around 63-6400rpm with the 229 cam you have in the car. I have heard that the factory fuel system is good up to the low 600's.

haha fuel is not the issue. custom setup with plenty of fuel, i'm not a fan of my AFR's or my boost falling off. That will be fixed tho.

Sounds like you got it all under control. What size are the drag radials that you are running? 1.49 sixty ft times are awesome. Are you happy with the tires or do you wish you had gone with a different size or brand? What does the AEM wideband do for you? I think you can remove the "tens coming soon" since you've been there with it now. Congratulations! What's next?

drag radials were ditched after lsx... they wouldn't hook well enoug and were not tall enoug. killed top end. i switched to a 28x10 slick from hoosier. the AEM wideband allows me to watch my AFR's to make sure i dont go lean, and easy logging in my hptuners. next i'm unsure at this point...which is rare for me.

I wouldn't even stand close to that car on Sat 10/16/2010 @ PRP, intimidated. But seriously, I checked it out and that is a great looking and wicked sounding camaro. Watched it run from the tnt lanes, bad a$$!
