When i hit page 9 and saw the sub sandwich jokes i almost DIED from laughing too hard. Guess that happens when PQ is poking around... Nice touch PQ.. glad you added to this awesome build in proper fashion!

Can't wait to see it in person... You need to be at SEMA with this car!
Thanks for the kind comments. Hopefully it won't be too much longer until it will be ready for road tuning...

Yeah, PQ and GTA and Brandon and the others all had a field day with the "Sub Shop Special" but it was fun. That is what makes this site so great. We all get to abuse each other and still learn and live the Camaro lifestyle.

At first it was not planned to be quite this crazy, but even more important than that is I get to give the whole SS factory engine, drivetrain and all the peripherals to a very deserving individual and that feels pretty good.

This just occurred to me... aren't you concerned that you might have voided your warranty with these mods? OMG!

BTW, I vote for 1996 rwhp. Those rascally dyno number almost always come out just shy of a number you'd really really like to have!



I am so going to show up one day to take you up on the "ride of terror."

I may be in Florida in the near future. Any chance the car will be too?

I seem to remember someone a not-so-long-ago asking warranty questions. I guess yours at 492 (now where did I read that?)

Well thank You !! To make it easier for others I will make a link list to the photo/build posts tonight. That way if someone is looking for a particular item they can find it easier. But some of the Camaro 5 crazies put some really funny stuff in here too...

Ha, you guys are funny. I don't think we are going to run the boost that high. On a prior engine, we just kept running the boost until it pushed the head gaskets out on a little 331 ci motor. That was around 44 psi...

You guys are crazy. For those numbers we would have put in a bigger cam and run twin 88's for turbos...

Believe me, it'll be tough enough getting the power to the ground as is...

It wasn't much of a guess, but more of me using my birth year.

Well, get a bigger cam and run those twin 88's! C'mon! I thought this was supposed to be a real muscle car. Don't wimp out now.

And yes, we're crazy!

Ok, I'll change my guess then... is 1400 rwhp out of the realm of possibility? Maybe you don't want to say so, but you must have a number you're hoping for.
