I told him he should of had you send the tranny down to Circle D to be beefed up.

Mine won't be so radical, but it already sounds good so I hope it at least gives me some more rumble. :)


:word:

you shouldnt decide on your cam based on your current converter. its better to go a little bigger now and swap the converter later (which you already plan on doing anyway) instead of going with a smaller cam and wishing you had more down the road.

I dont think Bonnie would believe Randy had the know-how to do that in the first place....:laughabove:

Ron said it's their Stage1 LS3 cam.
223/231 .610/.617 115+4

But they also have a blower cam.
223/231 .611/.617 115+3

So I'm not really sure. It's one of the two.

stage 1.... boring :laugh:

Why would I do that? Be a waste of money. When if it starts to go out THEN I do it. I may never have to do it.

I should have seen that one. hahaha

But I'm not worried about the smaller cam. I have to drive it as my DD and the power will still be there. Wheels would come first in the equation anyway. :rolleyes:

Fair, but in a year I would be the same regarless. Even if I got another 15 rwhp with a bigger cam, I'd still want more after a year.

BUT, I'm pretty content. I think I'll hit my limit this time. And this LS3/L99 bottom end can only take so much. I'll be happy to keep it tame. :rolleyes:

Hint: you are already well past "tame."

PQ, do you have any idea how jealous I am that you keep modding your car? I've been lusting for mossman's cam setup from Vengance since I saw his youtube back in 2009...

Hey PQ, learn how to take pics with your iPhone son!!:) Save your pennies for a new bottom end!! Even with a 3.2 and the cam helping lower the boost you will be entering the "borrowed time" range. At least run some race gas when you beat that bitch.

Ok. On my iPhone the pics are sideways. But on the PC they are normal. I used MS Picture Manager to do turn them. WTF?

I'm remember PQ back in 09 saying he was going to stay stock. Now he's in need of an intervention for a very contagious modding addiction.:help:

Once you're hooked, its hard to stop.:happyanim:
