Rpepka's 2nd L99 Camaro #26114

I am pleased to report 5.13 0 to 60 time on the new L99 that I picked up yesterday I picked up the car in Miami and drove home, on the way the power stearing pump failed. I went drove to the dealership and they replaced the pump today. The car feels much more powerful, it has a positive shift when shifting gears. We will be putting on a Maggie within the next 2 weeks with the help of ADM performance. Andy has been VERY helpful planning the build.

Very Cool. Can someone read the ECM and see if your software is different from earlier builds.

I am glad you have a car performing the way it is expected to. Congrats Again.

The new one looks the same except it is the origional one I ordered. It is a
2SS/RS with no sunroof. I did keep the 21 inch wheels from the 2SS that I sold. I am waiting until I get the blower on it before instaling the big rims and tires and I want to have some fun burning rubber!

Pictures will come after a good wash!

The exaust has a much louder tone as well. The 1st one sounded like a Caddy, no sound what so ever, this one sounds much louder and performance.

Well the blower just came in and it is raining every day so most likely no times until after the blower is installed.

Well the car is delivering the promised power and that is great, it is more like than love at the moment. If they had the LS7 Z/28 automatic I would be on that one like a fly on sheet. I think it will be love when my baby is pumping out 500+hp at the rear wheels after the blower is installed.
