    True, true. Then again his version of "quick" might not be our version of "quick".

    My ride goes mid 12's and to me it's a gutless pig..... Then again it won't hook up without the MT ET Streets on either...

    Agreed.

    If you want to beat everything then your goals are too high. There is always somebody who has a faster car.

    You right on the definitions of "quick". however, he said "enough power to beat anything ". There is only one way that translates to me.

    I hear ya. Even my buddy's 9 second turbo charged 00 Z28 (street legal I might add) has been beaten on the track.

    Like Joshie said, "There's always a faster car out there."

    That's rediculous, but +1 on there always being a faster car out there

    Ls6 intake. Exhaust. Gears and tune. The intake is a huge bump in power for the curve above 3k rpm for me

    Fun to watch though. Thing of it is his car only techs for running 10.0's. Now he's gotta do more safety things to be able to legally run that fast. Actually he's not even sure how fast it'll go.

    To whom are you addressing the question?

    As far as my friends Camaro none of the rear suspension is stock. Maybe the springs but I doubt it.

    how much do you want to spend?? i like the slp lid and bellows, but stuck with the stock filter (fram) because i heard the k/n filters had problems(any truth to it?). i have slp longtubes, but wouldnt reccommend them for an everyday driver because of ground clearance issues. Kooks headers are great, full stainless, nice clearance, but they also cost around a grand. i would change your gears to 3.73's since they seem to give decent highway manners and yet give good power (69camarorsss: i think for a daily driver 4.10s are overkill, but hey, thats just me). i have 325/50/17 mounted on 11.5 inch ZR-1's and i can spin them. heres how my car is set up:
    slp air lid
    slp longtubes
    qtp cutouts on the y-pipe
    offroad y-pipe
    magnaflow catback
    torquer v2 cam
    richmond 3.73's in the rear
    pro 5.0 shifter
    ls7 clutch with aluminum flywheel
    chromoly sfc's
    1.5 inch coil spacers in the rear
    boxed lca's and panhard
    full poly bushings
    poly trans mount and motor mounts
    airbag helpers in the rear coil springs

    as far a a good everyday driver is concerned, i would go with an airbox lid, headers, a cutout after the ypipe with the stock exhaust (so your neighbors will still like you when its closed lol) and definetly, no matter what, get weld in SFC's and make sure to undercoat the car so you can win the battle with rust!! if you want a little more, go with a mild cam and valvetrain upgrade and you should be set all this (if you do your own labor) should set you back around $2k- $2.5k
