    The new owner.

    Hello there!

    I just purchased my 2001 camaro SS about 5 months ago. The car is absolutely fantastic.

    I bought it from a guy getting out of the service/getting married/moving and he just couldn't keep it anymore. He claims to have been the second owner and purchased it from a dealership close by. He claims he never modified the car and purchased it with the mods already installed.

    it appears the first owner put in - from what i can tell - a short throw shifter, a corsa exhaust of some sort, and a new K&N cold air intake. Along with a little thing that shuts off the ASR on start and i have to manually turn it back on.

    theres also a few little tags on the car that claim its up to 400HP.

    The car runs like stink and blows the doors of my fathers 70 chevelle SS396 - so its obviously pumping pretty hard.

    But I can't assume a new K&N Intake and a corsa exhaust would pop this thing to 400? i've not dynoed it yet so i can't tell if its true. But knowing the car HAS been modified - what possibly could have been done to make it this powerful (if its not a lie)

    Any ideas? Or anyway i can tell if there is a new cam in it short of pulling the engine apart? Or am i just gonna have to dyno the bad boy to really figure it out?

    I don't really care either way - i enjoy the car as it is and won't ever be selling it.... it would just be nice to know :-P

    After purchase - seen next to 70SS and my old camaro (which sold days later)


    After a good wash.

    Yeah. my last camaro was lots of fun. But i decided this time i needed something that was either gonna catch him or beat 'em

    The first time i let him drive it he goes about 0-80 MPH in about 7-8 seconds - looks down and sees hes just now dropping it to 3rd - with 3 more gears left. and he just kinda shakes his head and goes "yeah you got me now."


    Thanks for the welcome!!!!
