    I'm a newbie and have a few questions

    First of all I just want to say high to everyone. I was wondering how much HP and torque everyone thinks my car has? I was also wondering what you think it will run in the 1/4? The drag strip in Bristol, TN wont be opened back up for over a month because they had a little problem. Around Christmas they have speedway in lights and when it snowed the put salt down and it ruined the concrete dragstrip and Nationals are coming up so there not letting anyone on it till there over. But before i did anything to my car all it had was the stall it ran a 13.8 and thats good at Bristol most stock f-bodies run low 14's. My mods are in my sig and one more question what does ORY stand for? Thanks everyone for being nice unlike the A-Holes at ls1tech. Later everyone be careful and have a great Memorial Day weekend!

    above are your mods.

    the stall you have is way to small and hurting your performance. something like a 3000-3500 is what you need with the cam you have.
    also do you have headers??
    ory= off road y pipe

    if you have headers and eveything is tuned, i dont see why you couldnt get low 12s.
    chnage the stall and youll be well into the 11s if you can hook

    The stall was in the car when I bought it I have plans on getting a bigger one. No I do not have headers there next on my mod list. I'm getting a set of Pacesetter LTs. Would you suggest the off road y? I have not been to the dyno yet. Closest one is a couple hours away. About the cam like I said I'm kinda new to this I was not sure what size I needed when I built the motor. I talked to the guy I bought it off of and said it was a mild cam nothing real big said it would do fine with my car and I got a great deal on it 125 new so I went on and bought it. What size cam do you think I need? Later on I'm going to put on heads too what kind and size of heads would go good with the setup I got?

    right about now i would guess you are not making more than 360-370rwhp.
    get the pacesetters with the off road pipe and youll easily gain 30 rwhp and more. you can stick with the cam if you like it, its not the best for a stroker, but like you said, its a mild cam.
    do the heads last. shop around, many of good heads out there.
