Yes thay never said 600 rwhp so thay are about 500rwhp and that et would be right . My best time is 11:83 I have 528 rwhp 315/35/20 nittos rear tires

Yes...I know I'm slow and can't drive my supercharged Camaro...but it's really more than that when you talk about this type of set up.

This is the stock tune from Magnuson, stock air box, stock exhaust manifold and the stock pulley. The intake and exhaust hurt it as much as the tune but when added together, it really hurts the cars total performance.

Yes it's faster than stock, yes it's a blast to drive and yes the potential is there...but in this form, low 12s is really a great time! Heck, even Hennessey advertises their HPE550 at this time! So it's not slow...it's what is expected

Add LTs, CAI and a solid tune, swap pulleys to get the psi back from the mods and sure, you have an 11 second Camaro...but like this, with a warranty of 3/36...this is what you get.

I have one...I own basically this same set up (TVS2300 and catback)...my car would not, could not...even with a good driver...pull a 11 second pass! Get a freak of a driver in there...maybe...but not the norm folks!
Couldnt of said it better myself. I agree 100%

Yes they are (it's coming soon - I was told a couple months away)... but it only works with the aftermarket Hurst Shifter.

Agreed. This gold one looks like The Bandit got ahold of it...

My cake-ass v6 should be dipping into 12's with a supercharger(and assuming the Jap tranny doesnt break), so this car should be posting some better numbers...

EDIT - hmm, maybe that is a bit ambitious - more likely low 13's..

Actually - if you had a Hurst Shifter, you could bolt your Cuda grip onto the Hurst in your Camaro. It might be pretty tall, but it would bolt right up... in fact I think they still sell the old style ones in a short version too: http://hurst-shifters.com/hurst-prod...HANDLE-STICK_2

I think it's sharp and the typical slow ass quarter times from motor trend do not surprise me. As far as the price goes, all you're really getting out of the deal is a custom Hurst vehicle. I personally would rather buy a 2SS and spend LESS money and get more out of her.

i really do like the car.. but... this is a camaro not a cadillac... i won't pay more than 10k for a performance muscle car! sure, sell those v6's to the wannabe's for 35k, but i ain't tricked, my 99 z28 will smoke the new ss at a quarter of the price( i say that because i have a few upgrades, otherwise it would be less)

Everyone has an opinion and I respect that. My opinion is that the Tom Henry Camaro beats the SLP in looks, performance and price!
