    Seems to be a few that have had bad experiences with SLP. I personally have not had trouble. Although I have only bought the SLP lid for mine so I haven't dealt with them much. There are a few things I would buy from them simply if it's not available anywhere else. Some of the comemorative paperwork on the SS and WS6 cars is pretty neat, and some of the factory parts unique to SS cars but other than that,,,if it comes to speed parts I would go elsewhere,,,not because of bad experiences,,,but because I already have other connections from playing with other cars and I stay with what I know and I'm happy with.
    Keeping in mind it's SLP that helped create these cars that everyone here loves so much. So we can't really knock them too much without being considered hipocrits. Larry.

    I can't beleive that they r calling some of u guys liars on the phone. That is completely ridiculous. I just can't imagine. Like how did they call u a liars? Did they ask what current mod's u had, and then they didn't believe u? WOW! that is really bad in my mind. I don't blame anyone for not ever using or recommending any of their products after an experience like that.

    yeah i heard of of the magic stick.. its a good cam it put up some decent numbers.. you should look in to GM high tech performance.. They did an articule on the magic stick and some of the thuder racing products.. gives you HP#'s and TQ#'s at the wheels not the crank...

    I would advise against SLP, only had trouble with them so far. I would definately recommend some of the Thunder (not thuder) racing products a lot of people have seen some good gains. I am a college student myself so I understand the money issues. What mods do you have already, might not need to look at cams yet.

    2002 CAMARO SS 35th LE

    I seen some one at the track that had the whole SLP PKG.. 400HP one.. with some 4.11 gears.. he ran a consistant 12.5-12.4 and i think he had slicks.. no too sure if he did.. If you don't have that much money or money is an issue with you.. then i would go with cam that should be a good gain and not to much money.. if you install it yourself.. But you'd better know how or else..

    mods/aftermarket parts void warranties if found upon inspection and or reported as so by the repair facility

    ofcoarse you can swap them out and not have a problem, but you have to be willing and able to... and not to forget

    keep in mind all bolts ons dont take 15 minutes to swap out

    i only have a lid and i havent bought anything else because i want to know everything about whatever i buy. i want the obvious next mod(exhaust) but then im thinking a torque arm and more suspension. h/c is definetely in the future but i want to get all the power to the ground and see what i can do with stock rear end and exhaust before crackin' her open. as i understand it from these forums, tuning is extremely crucial so i will have to save for that also.
    suggestions would be amazing b/c ive recently gotten bitten by the scca bug. it seems like an f body could run with anything.

    Not to sure about the SCCA but imagine would take a lot. Exhaust you cant really go wrong with any of them, I would suggest for the price some Pacesetter headers, off road ypipe, and a cutout. That will give you the most free flowing exhaust for you money. Now, is it an M6 or A4? For SCCA you will need to throw a good amount of money into the Suspension.

    400hp w/ 4.11s should equal low 11s... Mid twelves with that setup is pathetic.

    I believe Texas Speed is the company that currently has the fastest stock long block Fbody in the country with only a camshaft change,,,one of their majic sticks. That says a little something about them backing up what they sell. Larry.

    it's a 6 speed. im not neglecting the straight line by any means bc i love drag racing but i love DRIVING also. i thought about 4:10s in the near future but im gonna stick with the 3:42s. how much does a cut out add, about 10hp? i want to pull hard through all gears (dont we all) but a cut out increases top end right? im undecided as to where im going with this project but i want a well rounded car nontheless.
    keep the info coming!!!!

    Ya that SLP setup is a little misleading though. That 400 HP rating from SLP is at the flywheel,,,not the rear wheels,,,so those claims are about right.
    What SLP is doing is testing these components on a chassis dyno and then computing that to flywheel HP.
    The 400 HP package is only headers, rockers, air lid, a diablo tune, cat back exhaust, and thats about it,,,so running 12's with so little isn't too terrible,,,I still wouldn't go this route though,,,there are better ways. Larry.

    i heard that too and ive gotten alot of good feedback about texas speed products from people i run into around town. onw of my friends has the magic stick 3 ready to drop in his trans am. he has a y pipe with slp catback and 4:10 so im anxious to see how the cam will compliment everything else.

    i read about that package in gmhtp and it doesnt seem like it is worth the amount of money. i'd rather buy a comlplete h/c package with rocker arms and rods for that amount of money.

    Oh, by the way,,,all of the power pack SLP packages are based off of the LS6 intake as well,,,something to keep in mind. Larry.

    Yes I totally agree,,,,I would rather go the head and cam route myself. If your going to make a change you may as well make a big one,,,right? Larry.
