Becareful if you post there. The mods dont like you speaking any truth unless its 100% positive. You have to love SLP and like any aftermarket part or photo someone posts about Camaros.

Apparently after like 5 posts I was banned and it said "you and your attitude are not welcome here".

Lets see, I posted a stock dyno run on a l99 to help a guy compare his stock run.

I posted that most of the time SLP is a rip and I felt that Ed Hamburg is a tool for the whole attempt at the Firehawk issue.

Then I didnt like some aftermarket fender that looked like a BMW and said it would look better on a G8. Plus they had some pics of a DUBBED out camaro in the works that looked like a DUB toy.

Anyways dont disagreee with anything anyone posts there. No warnings, no infractions, nothing.


And yes, I see that I spelled careful wrong in the title, I almost did it posting this too. I have sweet typing skills.

There's a local site in kentucky that's really worthless. I've checked out several other sites. The more I see, the more I love LS1TECH.

And which one is that?

Cutting the throat of a sponsor on a newly founded site is probably a good way to get yourself banned even if you are right or not.

I got warned for asking who gives a crap about GT500's on that site. I've been a member since early 2007, own a 2010 and have over 800 posts. Seems the GT500 owners on that site got a little pissy and complained about me and I got warned. You can't disagree with anyone on that site I guess. It's great for info if you talk to the right people on the site but as a whole it's a waste of time.

I think there are more Mustang and bmw owners on that site than Camaro owners.

Seriously they ask "will I need a tune with that" so much that I was beginning to think it was everyones sig.

Don't start the SLP/Hamburger flames here. I like SLP, and never had a problem with Ed. He has always been helpful to the community. I just dislike the Firehawk G8.

Well, I like the 5th gen a lot but don't care for Camaro5 at all. Most people on there think that the 5th gen is the greatest car to have ever come in to existence and bash everything else. I don't really even read much over there anymore, just too damn annoying. I like to think of Camaro owners as one big family but they isolate themselves from all the other gens except maybe 1st gens.

The main problem is there is nothing for them to talk about, they just show each other pictures of their new cars. Just wait for the first person to post who has a white Camaro....that will be epic over there. There will be 40 pages of posts on that thread all saying “wow, white looks so awesome.”

I recently posted the SAME thread on here.
The mods on Camaro5 and GRRRR8 are paid off whores for certain vendors (especially a certain roots style blower company).
They censor members, repress honest criticism, and will even ban members at a vendor's request.
Greed and Censorship is here to stay, I'm afraid.
I'm beginning to believe the only place to get honest and unbiased information is at the track and at street races.

Love it, couldn't be happier unless it lost a few lbs. and had smaller rear rotors for a small dia. DR. Much more a street fighter than a track basher though but the power/brakes/suspension are great.

I agree with you but the same can be said of a lot of LS1 owners too.

Some of the shit said on that forum pisses me off. Biggest one is they are always talking about a twin turbo 4 popper. And how it would be great to see a 350hp V6 put into a Z/28. Honestly GM defaced the SS with putting SS on everything from Malibu Maxx's to HHRs. I do not think they should deface the Z/28 by putting a 6 into it.

I like the site but there are A LOT of trolls there, particularly mustang guys. I can't understand people with no interest in GM products going there only to bash the Camaro and talk about their mustangs.

+1 best site for the 5th gen right now. I think the mustang guys are just somewhat threatened by the car, especially with all the attention its getting right now. Plus they haven't had any real competition for a while now, probably itching for a fight :)

I agree, I like SLP, but people should still be able to have there opinion. Thats why I love this site, however sometimes it can go to far. But you should be warned first, not just ejected.

Dont know Ed, but I know SLP, awesome products and tech help.

The mods don't even have a clue when it comes to basic technical discussions.
You have one in particular that is learning forced induction basics from a root blower rep and he practically fellates the guy in every thread.

Comprehensive my ass.
It's like the blind leading the blind when it comes to tech over there.

Ive never heard of that site until i read this so i decided to go check it out and when i got there i saw a post about a firebird so naturally I went in to check it out and this is what some one said

"The only way I would pay $10k is if it had the WS6 package (the T/A hood that you mentioned), otherwise I wouldn't pay no more then $7-8k."

:rotflmao::rotflmao: i guess that extra 3000 ram air horse power is worth the extra 3k!!

...which, in reality, was another futile attempt by someone at Pontiac to salvage another struggling, too-late-to-market product...AGAIN...

Too little, too late, regardless...

As to Chev messing with the SS badge, seems to me they made 4000lb.+ Impalas...in the mid-'60's...with INLINE 6's...and SS equipment. Boy, they REALLY made the competition SWEAT, back then...

BTW, an HHR SS will flat embarrass about 90% of previous SS's (ALL varieties) in "showroom" trim...

Talk about "heritage"...

camaro5 is, in fact, a "specialized", semi-official site, full of enthusiasm and engineering minutiae. GM is paying attention to THAT site...

I went on there earlier and read through alot of the threads, and most of the people on there have no idea what they're talking about.
One dude even asked what a drivetrain was. lol.
And another guy in a V6 was whining about how ricers beat him easy. lmfao.
I'm almost tempted to get an account on there and put some people in their places.
I noticed a few of our members here joined over there as well.

Yep, I always look for the juggernaut HHR SS emblems before I get to jumpy at the light. You cant be seriously comparing 40 year old cars to modern day machines.

Of all the eras to pick from you select the 60's as the years SS was just a name play. It was the 60's that made SS and Z28 famous for kickass cars when you had to watch out for the emblems. Try comparing each to the competition at the time.

You have to be a complete fanboy to believe GM didn't utilize the SS name to make a few bucks, but maybe they have learned there lesson. I'm sure it was some bean counters idea to make a quick buck.

Not to knock their site too bad...

but as for most comprehensive tech resource in regards to non-interior and non-exterior cosmetics... you'll be very hard pressed to outdo LS1tech and g8board

Reason being... the LSx blocks they are using aren't some magical thing where they have unique knowledge of, if those people are just now thinking of it, it's already been done elsewhere.

As for the g8board inclusion. The camaro has a healthy bit in common with the G8 chassis from what I recall. So the aussie specifics from the G8 would be very useful. Further, I think the G8, Camaro, and CTSV2 all share the rear diff architecture(?). The TR6060 is out in the GT500, Viper, Vette, GXP, Challenger, etc. so nothing new there except the bad batch GM got.

There's nothing magical about camaro5 except if your looking at explicitly camaro only; but we're talking about a GM product here, there ain't too much that's unique.

????????????????????????? So you mean to say exactly what?

In 1970, I drove a '66 VW Bug...with a 180hp "poked-n-stroked" Porsche Super 90 engine...that lived on a steady street diet of 4bbl GTOs and juice-cammed '96s and 390s 'n such... See, power-to-weight and "grip" generally win the day. Along with "stealth" 'n "abilities"... Without bumperettes, with FR70's on Porsche "painted" rims, the wee Black car ran 14's...consistently...something many a Big Block '69 struggled to, or never, accomplished...

My brother had a '69 L78 Nova, and I never beat him...but, then, he was always "ready"...

Corvetteforum has gone to absolute shit as well.

One of the first guys to get a Techco just got banned for life.
EVERYONE wanted to hear from the owner to see if the Techco was the real deal or not.
They ONLY made 500rwhp on 91 octane. BUT, they were ONLY running 6psi.
So, because the guy was banned, we'll never know if he told them to stop at 500rwhp or if something fishy is going on with the system.


Like I've said before, I think the internet forums are going to shit because of greed and censorship.
