That's cool, well I'm looking at doing a meet and greet around the 9th of July. Around that area. It's in another post under New car club in AL. Check it out and spread the word.

I'm in for the 9th. Prattville is only 45 minutes from me (Calera).

Also, here's a link to a cruise-in at the Alabaster shopping center DQ. It's always the first Saturday of the month. My Chevy dealer's paint and body manager, who drives a Roush Mustang, told me about it after I got my Camaro four months ago. I've been twice. Last month, there were four 5th Gen Camaros there. The other owners were so glad to see so many since there are usually a lot of Mustangs there. Two of our Camaros were pretty much stock cars, mine included.

Only me and one other owner (had a supercharger) were C5 forum members. We told the other two about it, but haven't seen them online. I'll check with the other C5 guy and give him a link to this thread.

Pretty broad question to ask, man, lol.

I've been contemplating all the different options, myself. I can't decide between a twin turbo setup, a supercharger, or just swapping the whole engine and putting in an LSX 454 and staying naturally aspirated.

My guess is that you could probably ask your question to 100 different Camaro guys, and get 50 votes each for the turbo and supercharger. Definitely pros and cons to each. There's a whole section of the forum devoted to forced induction, though. I'd reccomend that as the place to start. You can read up on different setups, see the types of gains people are getting, hear about issues and problems they're having, and even start threads to ask questions and get advice.

I personally don't know enough about forced induction (yet) to be of much help to you. I don't know how much help you'll get asking your question in this thread, either, unless someone with some forced induction knowledge happens to drop by this thread. Definitely not trying to be rude about it or anything. I just think you could get some better answers if you cruise over to the forced induction board, rather than in an Alabama members thread. Not saying that no one will help you here, just probably not going to be as much thread activity by the people who can help you out, unless a forced induction guy from Alabama just happens to drop by this thread and see your post.

Good luck with whichever route you decide to take, though! These cars are beasts WITHOUT turbos and superchargers, and I'm sure you'll love it even more with some boost.

Hey just want to bump the meet and greet July 9th. Cant say it will be a big turn out, but it will be a start. We/I need to get some R&R time with other camaro folks. Everyone I work with is like, um yea I have a car and a engine that makes me go, thats as far as they care/know about vehicles. Im going crazy not able to BS with other gear heads. So again, I will be there on the 9th, even If I have to stop cars on the road and ask them what they got in there car HAHAHA

Here is the link to location/date/time...I had it at a restaurant, but they get a little busy on Saturday. So I figured will start small and go to the DQ down the road from it. Sometimes they have some classics out there.

So I'm new to both this site and Alabama. Recently moved to Ttown a few months ago and purchased my SS vert about a month ago. If you guys have any meets going on just give me a shout!! Also I have seen a couple times a car group that meets up in Bessemer fairly regular at a shopping center. Would be cool to bring some gen5's to that party!!

Yeah, I went to the Weevil City meet at the begining of the month. I am looking for some guys to head down to the strip with. I would like to run my car at the track at this elevation to see what it will do. Had my eye on the Emerald Coast track in FL.

I am looking for a wheel repair shop in the Enterprie/Dothan area that can fix a warped aluminum 18x10" wheel with a polish finish. I might ber interested in powder coating them too.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Will consider Pensacola and Montgomery too if needed

Thanks,

Ra
