My 'Modding' fund has turned into the 'Z downpayment' fund.
Anything to report on those mods? Dyno? Seat of the pants performance improvement? Sound?

While doing research on the 5th gen Camaro, I ran across this site. I have found alot of useful information here. I read this thread and was compelled to register, just to say that you guys are too funny. I was laughing out loud at work.

Oh yeah, ShnOmac, I, too, am waiting for the Z28.

Your "waiting room" reminds me of a Cheers episode. I guess you would be "Norm", GTAHAVIT is "Coach" and Number 3 is "Sam".

No dyno as of yet, I don't really care about baseline, cause they are all relatively the same. I was gonna wait for a few more parts and then go, cause there is only 1 dyno in Saskatoon I think and it is booked like crazy and expensive. But now I am not getting any more parts because of my whole Z28 fund thing.

Butt Dyno and my traction control light coming on all the time when it never used to tells me there were some power gains for sure!

Sound I am finally happy with. Roto-Fab intake makes the engine roar, and it got amplified x100 when I got my Borla Tourings on!

Nobody asks me if it is a V6 anymore!

I MIGHT get some BMR trailing arms and stuff in the spring to cut down this damn wheel hop though!


All in all though, #3, you guys made a damn fine car! When your complaints are "it's too quiet" and "it has so much horsepower the wheels hop", they aren't major complaints!

I could have "My seatbelt starts on fire" or "My floormats tried to kill me" like a certain other manufacturer's vehicles!

Now back to waiting for Z/28 news............................

Welcome aboard, Lilly.

Just a simple thread dedicated to those that are dedicated.

The only rule in this thread is you can't crab, bitch or whine about what the car has to be or must do or GM fails. After all, it doesn't even exist. It would be kind of like getting all bent because the unicorns horn was too short or something.

If you have to complain, go to the other threads Shnomac's place is all about chillin' while watin' for some newwwwwwwws.

Surprised to hear about the wheel hop. I haven't noticed that. Manual or auto?

The real wheel hopper was the original CTS-V. Boy that was a handfull. GM learned a lot while getting that sorted out.
