Default Slowhawk head and cam deal. Thanks!

Hey guys I bought the head and cam deal that Don from Slowhawk was selling a couple weeks ago. I just got the car back today and I am very happy with the parts, install, and service. Car is a 2001 Z06 that was 100% stock minus a GHL cat-back. Stock it made 340hp.
I also had Don do all the bolt-ons at the same time.
Car made 460rwhp and 406tq on a slipping clutch. Don thinks there is a bit more left after we put a clutch in it.
I had an 80mile trip home and the car averaged 24.7 miles per gallon with the A/C on. When I got home I even noticed that they polished or atleast cleaned my exhaust tips.
Needless to say I am happy and want to say THANK YOU to Don and his crew! I will be back soon to find out how much more power we can get out of it.

If anyone has any tech questions Don can answer them if I can't.

Thanks Slowhawk!!

Awesome numbers. I'll definitely have to make it back up to Don when I'm ready to jump in for a cam. Great guy and great shop.

Car came out great. Just need to get the clutch to hold.

Definitely the highest hp car we've dyno'd with ported stock heads and those mods. Wish I could get more of those heads done.

That setup was so badass! I miss mine that was on my Z. I remember racing all day long and driving back home with absolutely no issues! Good luck with everything!

Every car and package is different. Give Don a call and talk to him about a setup that suits you and your cars needs..

Like everyone else says here Don and his guys are great to work with and really know their ****..

New to the area since MAR of this year and Don's guidance has been great.

OP, congrats on your H/C experience thus far.
