I have no plans to race it. I wanted a street car. If I was going to race I would have kept a race car.

I don't like the sound. I ordered a 4" Mufflex exhaust for it.

Sounds pretty good to me...but everyone has their own opinion on what a car should sound like. At least it don't sound like a stock LS1 with no mufflers on it... nothing worse than a loud Camaro that sounds like a dump truck.

3rd Gen Camaro is way too cool for a LS anything.

i heard you can take a car to the strip and just run it down the track,,,to get a time slip. you don't actually race another car.

that's what i heard anyway

Your just coming to that realization? Most have known that since the invention of drag strips.

I guess I can never rule out taking it to a test and tune at the track. 50 minutes to the track.

Drive it there, pop of a 10 second run and drive it home...
