I need some advice on DOT Street Radials Drag Tires. My question is what is the biggest tire I can out on my 2000 Camaro? What is a good tire? What rim do I need? I donít want to grind down my calipers like I seen some do.

i think my best bet right now is to let it sit and clean it up and do everything i want to the inside and clean it up and under neath it and save for a new block or really good heads and then a block wish i could win the lottery and just throw a ls9 in there and get a ws6 haha

A high mileage motor really changes the perspective of things. Wasn't aware of that before.
In that case I'd start looking at crate motors as suggested. Although swapping in the LQ motors with more cubes from Texas Speed and the like would be nice. Those aren't simple swaps. They require wiring harness extensions for sensors that have been moved to different locations, fuel system upgrades, and it just goes on and on. It starts adding up quickly.
It's a great idea for a weekend toy. But for what HP level you want to accomplish you really don't need a stroker.
I didn't go back and read the whole thread again, but aren't we talking about a daily driver??

I found a dollar on the floor and went to buy a lotto ticket with it. I bought the mega millions which comes out on tuesday and friday. On Wed morning when I checked my ticket I didnt even get one number. But on Friday, EVERY SINGLE number came out that I had on Tuesday. Was worth 88 million, I felt depressed for a week and wanted to kill myself.

As far as stuff needed right now,,,I was thinking along the lines of using what he already has. His HP goal is small, and could be accomplished with an LS6 crate engine, stab a cam in it and call it done. Everything else transfers over just fine. Simple swap, nothing custom. Easy to make 400+ rwhp with an LS6 and a decent cam.

yeah i dont really know what im going to do because i got to get a house soon to and dont wan to have to sell the car after im done haha it would be a shame so for now i think a decent set of heads and intake with a k member will be just fine and just some paint and cleaning under the hood then get the other crap like the rear end and sfc lower and uper control arms and start adding power
