It feels like a 3400 pound car instead of a 3800 pound car

Just curious and I'll admit I'm no expert at reading dyno charts. What's the low end (below 3000 rpm) like now after the cam swap? I've heard that after a cam swap you can suffer some down low.

Given the fact the car is a nightmare to launch now....maybe a little drop off in the bottom end wouldn't be so bad.

If you look the the graphs, your partially on target....the HP gains are pretty modest until you start getting to the top end. However the torque curve jumps a pretty good amount from the get go.

Depending on how large of a cam you spec, the bottom end can suffer. This cam was chosen because it was a decent balance of TQ & HP, basically because it's a "smaller" cam.

Went out and took some better shots ( not in my driveway ) of the new stuff, as well as a short "walk around" video. ENJOY!

Almost time to put away the Bee for the winter

Hopefully I'll be able to get out to the track one last time for some runs to see what the car will turn post cam swap

It's also time to start researching/planning further mods over the winter!

Looking at HP Tuners or an SCT tuner set up for the car.

Subframe & differential bushings are a MUST.

Toe Links.

Looking into a CNC ported TB and a catch can.

Gotta do something to keep from going crazy over the winter.

Some minor underhood eye candy upgrades..........a showstopper fuse cover, I painted my dipstick IOM and the battery post cover CGM.

Should be worth an easy 50 HP at the wheels

Hugger congrats on the calendar cover! Your car is done up nicely. Enough mods to be different but still stock looking enough to be covert! Most excellent. Good color choice.

Thanks much.....I try to make it different, but more so in the sense that people really have to think about what is modded. When the car is by itself it doesn't look modded at all....but parked next to a bone stock one, the differences get a little easier to find.

Pretty soon you'll be tooling around in yours!

First snow today.....

What to do? Go in the garage and rip the intake off so it can get ported along with the throttle body. Car has under 8K on it...so I included how much oil I found behind the throttle plate and inside the intake...found some traces on the ports as well.
