    98 Camaro SS - Want to run 12's

    I am interested in buying a 98 SS Camaro. The car has 81,000 miles with Automatic Transmission and 3.23 gears. I would like to get the car to run in the low twelve second range at 3500 ft altitude. What mods are necessary for a SS to run that ET Range? Please any advice!!!

    Thanks,

    Perry

    well if you want to run LOW 12's, your best bet is to start with your suspension. make sure you can grab the road before you start modding your motor. Then do your bolt-ons...MAF sensor, airlid, headers (pacesetter or hooker. slp has clearance issues). As long as you can grip the road, you should be able to run low 12's EASY with these bolt-ons.

    stay away from maf sensors..their hit and miss....do some suspension work..get a stall converter, maybe some gears and stick tires....start with that.

    This is what I would do.

    3500 Stall converter
    Loudmouth Exhaust
    SLP Headers and Y-pipe
    LS6 Intake Manifold
    BFG Drag Radials
    Tubular K-member
    Tubular A-arms
    Spohn Adjustable Torque Arm
    Spohn Adjustagle Race Rear sway bar
    Relocation Brackets
    Sub Frame Connectors
    Upgraded Control Arms
    Tranny Mount
    3.73's
    V-6 springs in the back
    Stock springs in the front
    Hal 8 way adj drag shocks

    That should get you deep in the 12's

    They are cheap and they are softer than the stock springs. Makes the rear dip when you launch which places more weight over the rear tires adding traction.
