Nope, just Mac cat deletes on stock manifolds into the stock exhaust with a cutout.

I do it from idle for a couple reasons... one the whole point of flashing is that your hitting the convertor quicker so you can blow right past the rpm it would normally couple at and get a little extra stall out of a stock convertor. the other reason is that higher stall motion is going to abruptly transfer weight so you will end up with more weight planting the rear tires vs. preloading the drivetrain.

I get it, so the sudden impact provides more immediate launch at a higher stall speed, than preloading the chassis allows.

that is my opinion , but you know what they say about opinions lol

when I took my stalled auto car to the track that is what i did , full weight ,far from full bolt ons and it ended up with a fuel delivery issue at the top end that we hadn't noticed on the street ended up a bad pump... got it to go 12.1 @112 that night on 1.6 60 foots also had to pull the front sway and throw my toolbox in the trunk to get it to fully hook , street nights are hard to find traction so really it was more than full weight but da was real good i rarely go to the track and never go to the track without negative da....

I bring my spare and jack with me, just in case, and then pull them for my runs, if needed can always throw the spare or even the jack back in of needed for traction.
Thanks Murph! Appreciate the input.

I'm going back to Mason-Dixon this Sunday, just in case you're thinking about abusing your Camaro a bit ;-)

Wow, you need to do a little less "abusing", or so it sounds!
Sorry to hear about the down time, and valves... Hopefully it doesn't hurt your wallet to badly too!
