I agree. Your car sounds louder than mine. I am not at all embarrassed by how loud mine is. Yet, it does growl, but it's not obnoxious at all. Are you sure they put in a Borla Touring exhaust in your car and not the S-type?

Do your headers have cats? (mine do)... Is the exhaust a full cat back? (mine is). I'm just trying to see where the differences are in our cars other than the cam that might make yours so much louder. Maybe Ask your shop why it is so loud. It really should not be obnoxiously loud with the Touring exhaust on it. I wonder if it could be some of the other parts you had them put in the motor?

On the other hand, the cam really gives your car a nice lope. I love that sound! Thanks for sharing the videos.

American Racing Headers long tube with cats and Borla Touring cat-back (part# 140281 is what the label says on the box in my garage). It could be either the Borla factory accidently put the wrong set in the box, or labeled the box wrong. Either way, I will get used to it, as long as nobody complains.

I am still enjoying my Vengeance Racing built supercharged/cammed/Pfadt 2010 Camaro. I do have a small tuning issue that will need to be resolved. When decelerating to a stop and then quick go, the car sometimes just pops a couple of times instead of going. If I come to a complete stop, sit a few seconds, then go, it seems to be fine. So, it only happens with a deceleration with foot off the gas, then quickly press the gas to go again.

I have two choices, (1) schedule an appointment with Vengeance and drive from the Nashville, TN area to the Atlanta, GA area or (2) buy a tuner from Ted Jannetty and get a Jannetty tune that everyone swears by

I'd like to hear how that works out. Maybe you could post the procedure and the results?

Well, I received the SCT X3 from Jannetty Racing, followed the instructions and sent the file to Ted. Ted then wanted to know if this was the stock tuning file or a tuned file. So, I informed him it is the tune from Vengeance. Ted said he would rather have the stock tune file, which I don't have. My two options are to go all the way back to Vengeance Racing and have them reset back to stock or have my dealer set it back to stock, both of which would render the car unable to be driven, I would think.

Ted is going to try to see if SCT can give him a stock tune file to work with.

The whole process makes no sense to me, but I don't tune cars for a living.

I am now running on a Ted Jannetty tune. I will report back in a couple of days how the tune is doing.

I would think Vengeance should still have your stock tune file and be able to email it to you.

I know my shop kept my file and gave it to me.

They use EFI Live software, so I am not sure it would be compatible with SCT X3. I probably could have asked, though.

Ted was nice enough to help me out at one time and he was able to read my stock tune file in HP tuners. I think he said he could read almost any format. (I'm not 100% sure of that though.) I just mentioned this because I think it is standard procedure for a shop to keep your stock tune file in case they ever have to reinstall it.

Hope all goes well for you!

I am sure Vengeance Racing has the tune on file, but I assumed I would have to have someone with EFI Live put the tune back into my car. Then the SCT X3 could pull it out of the car into a file in the SCT X3 format for Jannetty Racing.

I haven't had a chance to do a lot of driving with the new tune. I caught a cold and stayed home Friday - Sunday (Halloween) to get better. The tune seems fine, so far. I did get sideways when pushing the gas to the floor from about 20 mph this morning (with traction control off). This was after driving a few miles, so the tires weren't too cold. It just shows how much torque this monster has

I'd sure like an update on your driving experiences now that you have such an increase in HP and torque!

I'm wondering on the effectiveness of traction control with so much HP and torque available. Does it still work, or is it overwhelmed by the instantaneous torque? How does the car perform as a daily driver? How does that much power affect drivability on tight windy roads?
