Buy all of what stuff? I only have the Injen and the MRT 2.0. By the looks of your signature you have the MRT's. So you would only need the Injen to be where I am at. But you can still run it without this item. I was able to get to # 5 on the list with only these 2 changes.

I could only imagine where I would have been had I not ran with a full tank of gas, along with my current weight of over 300 lbs. and use some wider drag radial tires instead of stock 19's. Might have been able to keep up with Scrming.

well i want shorty headers, a tune (once they crack the ecu and my warranty is gone), intake, new rims and tires, etc... all costs money. the intake will be next but that won't happen until several months from now. and there is no track anywhere near where I live. i have to drive a number of hours to get to one and have never gone before so i would have to find out how it all works. my point is i will get there eventually it will be a few years though.

No problem, I completely understand. I have on my wish list similar items, headers, tune (warranty issue), wheels and tires (after the current ones are spent looking towards spring of 2013). The bigger issue for you is a track, How close are you to Port Huron. I ask because you can come to Lapeer Dragway which is probably less than an hour from the bridge.

Good luck and enjoy your Camaro.

far far far away

but thanks

ya i'm not sure exactly but there is a track maybe 4 hours away from where i am.... maybe 3 1/2 hard to say i have never been there and don't know exactly where it is. but to find time to get there is the tough part..... since i can't just drive there and drive home. i could only do it on the weekends... and at that only a handful a year are open to do somethingl ike that anyway. it sucks.... but ya i will enjoy when i can someday. thanks

5. 14.024 @ 100.37 - rtcat600man - A6 - (Injen CAI, MRT v2.0 Axle Back)
6. 14.026 @ 100.24 - priz23 - A6 - (CAI Inc. CAI, Flowmaster AT Axle Back)

So how does this make those guys that spent some hard earned money on headers, cats and a tune feel? If these times and mods are correct.

We had GREAT DA.

Mine was -900 and Priz23 was at -595.

As for the others well if and when they get good DA they will run even better. Just ask the KING. He was running those GREAT DA's and is sitting on top. He has the short headers and tune.

I finally completed my spread sheet of my runs from Saturday. Listed below are the 1/4 mile times for the last 11 runs and the MPH for the last 13 runs. Right lane produced more speed.

The automatic is consistent for times. The 11 runs were all within .133 of each other.

I'm in 10th place, this is totally unacceptable! Time to get smaller rear wheels and drag radials or just go somewhere where I can get a negative DA! Unfortunately I'm more interested in trying to make this a track car so sway's and lowering springs are a little more important.

Those of you at higher elevations and warmer areas will best be represented by an unofficial times like the SS have.

correcting for sea level looks like about 13.92 @ 99.5MPH for my 13.78 run...
