I don't think so. She sees me on it all the time and just refers to it as car porn.

Only regret I have is not buying the proper fuel system to start. I opted for the cheap way out, bap, and it was not enough.
So now I'm getting a squash double pump return style fuel system .
Just do it right the first time

It's not a blower specific cam but he recently had a car put down 715hp with it and his ECS kit

I also regret getting a girlfriend. If I didn't speed my money on her I could already have a SC lol.

I regret that I ran out of money and my wife's approval of any more mods at about the same time. Would have like to pull the motor and stroke it in addition to what I already have for the sake of safety and a little more power. To be honest though...I have more than enough power for the street and it runs like a champ almost 2 years since my last mod without any problems. Go for it...just figure out exactly what you want, save up and do all the engine stuff all at once. It's cheaper than paying a shop to take the same things apart and back together again 3 times...ie, supercharger, then cam, then stroker.

I am 65. I have put over 10,000 trouble free miles on since I got the supercharger. Love the whine from the cog drive I got from Jessica. I did have to put on 305 rear tires though. PS: I average over 19 MPG.

No regrets! Going on 2 1/2 years with a Livernois built, cammed with Maggie. Over 14000 miles since build.

I was getting 25 mpg ave on highway driving, but since changing gears to 3:90 over the winter (which has really let the camaro jump) will see what new ave is.

Why? I don't mean to argue, or doubt your statement, I'm just curious.
