    it is hitting the rev limit which i set at 6500 after i changed to the 3.73 over the 2.73, my tuner went on vacation after my gear swap so i went to the track as it was, i haven't been running the car hard so it will be ok till i can have my shift points dialed in. i would like for every gear to shift right at 6000 opposed to the 6500 since it isn;t creating power at the speed.

    You guys mentioned losing 100lbs. to improve overall E.T./trap! Curious, how much does the 4th. gen Camaro and Trans Am weight on average?

    the specs he posted aren't the .050" duration numbers. they are the .004" duration numbers.

    that cam i had in the wife's car. wen't 12.30s.

    to get into the 11s, you'll need a larger cam.

    the XXX cam would be closer to what you need.
