    I am new to this forum so if I make a mistake please be kind. I have a 2002 Camaro SS with some factory SLP parts like headers, center exhaust, MAF, airbox and bellows and strut tower. Before I have Frost do my PCM does anyone know if I have a LS1 or an LS6 manifold. Also, what is the REAL redline with my 6 speed trans. And last, what should this car do before I have Frost do his thing. I am busy and have not had time to go to the track. I just bought this car with 29k and I am new to the game. Thanks, Keith.

    welcome to the site.

    I'm not trying to be rude here, but you kinda threadjacked the op.

    You can start a new thread and we'll try to answer all your questions.

    welcome to the site

    you will need to convert over to the car accessory drive and need a new water pump.

    the alternator I believe you can still use.


    pls post pics of car. we love to see projects like these.
