GZ Motorsports corvette kit with a little custom work to make it fit a 2010 camaro.

Small thing I noticed is that it made the idle super crisp compared to before. Neat.

Dietcoke,
So what did your car finally put down on che chassis dyno? I was searching your build on another forum and didn't find it. onlydyno stuff I seen was when you were having rocker problems.

thanks,
Jim

I haven't been back since the rocker problems because I'm moving cross country in a month. (it still made 581 that day). Probably a tick over 600 now, but will get it retuned @ vengeance on Georgia corn when I get to GA

DC love the mods. Tell me, what made you go to a vaccum pump? Did you have a standard PCV breather on it before? I'm pretty sure they make a free HP but any other pluses and minuses?

Breathers weren't cutting it as it was still pushing the tiniest bit of oil at redline. It was fabbed valve covers with -10 lines to a tank, or a vacuum pump. The pump was only ~$100 more total then nice valve covers, lines, and a tank. Was a no brainer, since its worth a good bit of hp.
