So go pick up a small Black & Decker Firestorm drill at Wally World for $30.00 , A great investment for mods and alot of other things..

Then you don't have to depend on others to do it and PAY someone .

Thumbs up What comes first

First off, how much RWHP are u looking for?

Start looking at Kits. TSP makes complete head and cam packages getting you close to 500rwhp. And Joe said it right.. If you know that your dead set on doing heads and a cam they need to be done at the same time, cause you have to take the heads off to do the cam...so why do that twice. I think LT headers, Cam, SLP pulley, port your throttle body and intake your gonna be looking at 490 rwhp and that's pretty street friendly once you have a good dyno tune.

Hope this helps a little...

second...thinking about cam, ported/polished heads and headers. Probably going to be doing in steps....which should be first and what shop you recommend in cny for the work.

thanks guys

Yoh if your going to put all that money and power in it you better take that brick out from under that right peddle so you can get use out of that money investment.

Nice. We should meet up soon. What # ZL1 do you have? I looked on Becky's list of MY 12's and did not see your name.

Really not looking for a particular number. Heard the thr Camaro at nationals and want that sound. Only way to get it is a cam and headers. Thr said they can do cam/headers/3 in exhaust for 6k. Seemed kinda high. But I loved the sound so have to save up!!!!

HI EVERYONE!Just got home from an EXCITING day at ESTA DRAGWAY.Pulled onto the grounds and one of the officials called me over.He said he has never rode in the new 5th gens,so he wanted me to take him down the track.For the first time ever driving a stick car on a drag strip,ZENA perfomed admirably!!!!!!!Ran a 14.53 et at 99.36 mph in the 1/4!!!!!!!It was nice having a free practice run!!!Now come time trials,first pass ran headsup with a 3rd gen,we were both close on the light but at the end I got him by 1.79 secs.My et was 14.112 at 100.65 mph!!!!!!!!The next run was a little slower due to a little wheel hop in the first 60 ft,still had an et 14.594 at 99.83 mph.I saved the best for last with a run of 14.004 at 104.15 mph,with traction control on the whole time.You gotta love that no lift shift!!!!!These cars are everything they said they were and then some!!!!!!!!!!Igot beat in the first round on a breakout,I cuold not let the guy pass me!!!!!!!You guys have to make it to the test and tune at the end of this month,you'll love it.
