EVILBEE 2.0

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=459361

So far so good 1,600 problem free miles so far the car is nice the interior is vastly superior to the 5th Gen. That being said until I do any mods this car does feel better then my 2011 3.6L V6 stock for stock. But we all know my car didn't stay stock for long and I doubt this one will either. I really want to get it on the track both drag and road course sometime soon, the weight savings on this car is really noticeable over the Gen 5 almost immediately and you can feel the increased in agility right off aswell.

After the 1,600 Miles I can say i'm happy I bought the car eventhough i'll miss my 5th Gen.

Pro's So Far:

Lighter, Tighter More Agile Handling from the upgraded stock suspension and weight savings the car feels like a track car.
2.0 Turbo is getting me an avg. of 36 MPG I can hit 48 MPG highway at 65MPH on cruise control.
Interior
Performance is there just need to get the car into the mid range RPM's fast to actually utilize the performance.
The Aftermarket is already out pacing the V6 which is funny because the staple companies in the 5th Gen Aftermarket aren't doing anything with the Turbo 4 they leaving tons of money on the table.

Con's So Far:

I miss my 5th Gens Push Bumper I've had 6 run-ins with deer since I got this car luckily no impacts yet.
Throttle Response is the same as the 5th Gen waiting on a fix for this I will likely tune this car eventually but a throttle controller sooner rather then later would be nice.
Same 5th Gen problems with the paid for by mom and dad eurotrash cars wanting to race.

EB, I like those 4cyl turbos. My wife has the same engine in her Saturn Sky Redline. Tons of fun to drive. MPG is awesome!

I was tempted but the aftermarket wall on the V6 is what swayed me.
