Front -2.0 camber, toed out .125 degrees
Rear -1.0 camber, toed in .125 degrees.


If you get more track oriented max the camber out. You'll get -2.5 to -2.8 in front and -1.5ish in back.

No...

Well if you did a lot of research you'll find that most of the head issues are with LS7's in the C6 Z06 and not the 14-15 Z/28's. The issue was supposedly caught in 2011 and corrected shortly after....

For an autocross you’ll typically only get 6-8 runs. Each run will be 45 seconds to a minute and you won’t be at full throttle much at all. You could probably get by with 1/4 tank. I like to race...

Mike is one of the best tuners in the nation. He tuned my Z. Did you request a street tune? Or did you just request some dyno pulls to get a number?

On a stock engine it’s around 10 so with your cammed engine I’d say 15 maybe. Headers and intake would surely get you to the 560-570 mark. If you think your car sounds nasty now wait until you do the...
