    thanks for the info guys. I think you are swaying me away from long tubes. they cost more, you need a new cat, and a ORY pipe... I can just put that money into 373 gears, or a line lock or something... 440- do you have stock internals?

    Forged 355, Procharged 9 lbs, bolt ons, cam. No pics, but with the exception of headers, and the air intake tube it looks stock. The blower is tightly tucked where the air pump was. You really can't see it unless you look for it.

    p.s. i built a N/A 440 rwhp, 470 rwt. i know a little about this stuff.
    for one u buit a 440rwhp car n/a...great u want a fucking cookie? not to burst your bubble, but others have done it as well...lots of em and prob better since u put on shortys...and yeah its a bitch to put on lt1's, but some real men arent pansy's like your self and dont have to lift ur fuckin engine just to put on shortys, my friends have put on longtubes in their driveways before...

    1-3rwhp huh?, god your a fucking moron...try more like 20rwhp or more u dumbass not considering the fact that it also unbelievably helps the lt1's top end....seriously for someone who has a fast car like urself, you sure are a dumb muthafucker...ohh and just because we dont have 350rwhp, doesnt mean that we dont have plans to achieve that point or higher...maybe like 450rwhp, then we could call ourself 450rwhp ta or camaro...10 higher than u, huh?..and longtubes just help us on our way there...its people like you why i keep putting money into my car

    dude take a look at your car! its fucking ugly. oh yeah and for the record i took my engine out to make it a stroker. and I'm not a broke dick mother fucker like you. i do all my mods at one time. i do not work at wall-mart or McDonald's like you do. and if you think long tubes give you an extra 20 hp over my shorty's your stupid. like i said take you and your 285hp hunk of shit and get off this forum. my dog has more sense than you.

    p.s. sorry to every one else that reads this i do not normally get mad at stupid people. but he sent me a pm just so i can see that he has bashed my idea of whats best for my friend.
