Project Heavy Chevy has been rolling around with a cold air and ported OEM throttle body but WAIT… We are going to do a before’n after comparo with GM High Tech on the car. Will dyno stock, and then throw some parts on the car and see what it does. I’ll go back to the track when it’s cooler and out run on stock tires and see how ET I can drop, and how much MPH I pick up.

We just had Late Model Racecraft perform some “repair” modifications to our 2011 Camaro SS convertible. It had a factory lifter go bad, so we took the opportunity to have LMR install a cam, headers and do an LS3 conversion – lifters, pushrods, cam gear, valvesprings, etc.. The car now puts down 517 rwhp – through an auto trans.

My latest Chevelle build update – the motor has been placed, will likely run a COMP Truck intake (or something else tall), VVT cam, custom motor mounts and headers will be required. Chose a 5 qt Canton oil pan for steering linkage and grount clearance. Will run a 3 qt remote reservoir as well.
